History of the Name (Yeshua to Jesus) – Key Points

With every language, adjustments are made to that language and its writing as time goes on to standardize pronunciation, differentiate words, and clarify meaning. Hebrew was originally drawn as pictures and then written as script (22 letters, all consonants). Next, matres lectionis (specific letters) were added to the end of the words and then the middle of the words.

Finally, the nikkud vowel marking system was used. Yeshua was originally drawn as three pictures and three letters ישע but the letter Vau ו and vowel markings were added over time to standardize pronunciation (Yeshua). 

God gave the word to the Jews and Gentiles in their languages (Hebrew and Greek, respectively) and today in English, the dominant language of our time, He gave His word, uniting the Old Testament Hebrew and New Testament Greek. Translation from one language to another carries over the meaning (not the sound). Yeshua in Hebrew, Iēsous in Greek, and Jesus in English all speak of Jesus being the saviour. Still, Yeshua was never used in the New Testament and unless we say all of His Word in Hebrew (Psalm 138:2), it doesn’t have to be used now.

We call Him JESUS! Hebrew has multiple names for God with different pronunciations and spellings. Greek has multiple ways Jesus’ name is used with different pronunciations and spellings. Today, in English, a pure language, His name is one (Zechariah 14:9), and “all may call upon the name of the LORD, to serve him with one consent” (Zephaniah 3:9). Everything adds up to JESUS.
