The Hebrew Yeshua vs. the Greek Jesus

This video explains  the Hebrew perspective of our Messiah, by using His Hebrew name. It’s fine to use the modern English name Jesus as well. The name Jesus is the modern English translation from the Greek Iesous, which comes from the Hebrew name Yeshua.

Seekerofyhwh says he likes to use the name of Jesus, and grew up with using that name. Now, he prefers to use the name Yeshua (His hebrew name) in order to show that He was a Jew who kept torah and to help people understand the Hebrew perspective about who He was.

    Here is the thing though…iesous is not a translation of Yeshua. Yeshua means “YHWH (Yahweh) IS salvation” and iesous only means “salvation”…..who or what is salvation?! It says that his name will give glory to the Father and “Yeshua” clearly most certainly does but iesous and jesus do not. When they changed the name they took “YHWH” (God) out of it. The power is in the name….praise Yeshua!

    The Hebrews (Masorite scribes) had a tradition of not saying the Father’s Name, so they corrupted the scriptures and put vowel markers to make sure His Name would not be pronounce correctly because of their tradition concerning the misuse of His Name. When all is said and done, Christ said that He came in His Father’s Name. It is YHWH.

    The first two letter are the Yod and the Hay and are pronounced Yah. This abbreviated form of the Father’s Name is found in Isaiah 38:11, Psalms 15o:6 and Psalms 115:8. It has also been used for thousands of years in the word, “HalelluYAH! The first part of this word is hallel in Hebrew, and it just doesn’t mean to “praise,” but means a JOYOUS praise in song, to BOAST in YHWH. The second part of the word is Yah (Jah in some renderings), and is the first two letter of YHWH. HalelluYah is PRONOUNCED the same in 2,400 languages and means to bring a joyous praise to Yah and is found 24 times in the Hebrew scriptures. Remember that there is no ‘J” or “W” in Hebrew. So we have Yah as being part of the Father’s Name. Christ said He came in His Father’s Name.

    Now if you look up the name “Jesus” in the Strong’s lexicon it has “Iesous”: “2424 Iesous ee-ay-sooce’ of Hebrew origin (3091)”

    Here are the KJB concordance numbers: “These428 are the names8034 of the men376 which834 Moses4872 sent7971 to spy out8446 (853) the land.776 And Moses4872 called7121 Oshea1954 the son1121 of Nun5126 Joshua.3091”

    It traces the name of Messiah to Hebrew word #3091 in the Strong’s lexicon, which is the same name as “Joshua, Son of Nun.” It is important here to note that a Greek transliteration of the Hebrew scriptures that was completed many years before Messiah came to earth rendered the Hebrew name “Yahushua” as IhsouV (Iesous). There is also evidence that although the name of the Messiah was written in Greek as IhsouV, it may have actually been pronounced the way a Hebrew speaking person would pronounce it. Around 178 CE, a pagan by the name of Celsus engaged in written debates with Christians, in one of them saying of Christians:

    “But of course they think otherwise: they assume that by pronouncing the name of their teacher they are armored against the powers of the earth and air. And they are quite insistent on the efficacy of the name as a means of protection: pronounce it improperly, they say, and it is ineffective. Greek and Latin will not do; it must be said in a barbarian tongue to work. Silly as they are, one finds them standing next to a a statue of Zeus or Apollo or some other god, and shouting, “see here: I blaspheme it and strike it, but it is powerless against me for I am a Christian.”

    In the Strong’s concordance and other Hebrew Lexicons, the pronunciation listed for the Messiah’s name is typically “Yehoshua.” But the reason for the “Yehoshua” pronunciation is due to the Hebrew vowel pointing added by the Masorite scribes, which are the little dots and dashes under and above certain Hebrew letters. Hebrew was written with mostly all consonants and it was up to the reader to supply the vowels in each word based on the context of the word. Since they didn’t want people to say the Heavenly Father’s name, they pointed the Heavenly Father’s name to produce the sound “Yehovah.”

    YHWH are the Hebrew letters Yod, Hay, Uau(waw) and Hay. As we have already learned, the first two letter are pronounced “Yah,” as in halelluYah! There is no letter “W” in the Hebrew, and the letter “double-U” came into existence in only parts of western Europe during the 13th century. The Hebrew letter commonly seen as “waw” is more accurately expressed as a “UAU,” since it conveys the sound of “U,” and sometimes “O.” When the letter “hay” is followed by a “uau,” the sound is to be “OO,” as we hear in the word ”halleluYah.” That “u” sound you hear in “halleluYah” is the letter “uau.” The tribe of Judah is actually “YAHUDAH” and is spelled YOD-HAY-UAU-DALETH-HAY.

    Notice the four letters in this five-lettered word. It’s as simple as saying “YAHUDAH” without the sound of the letter “D”: YAHUAH. So, the Name of the Father is “Yahuah.”

    The Name of the Son is the same as that of Joshua son of Nun(#3091), which is YOD-HAY-UAU-SHIN-AYIN, and is transliterated as Yahusha, and YOD-HAY-UAU-SHIN-UAU-AYIN, and is transliterated as Yahushua. Yahusha is 216 times in scripture, while Yahushua is found 2 times in scripture. In Deuteronomy, Yahusha is used 7 times, while Yahushua is used once. In Judges, Yahusha is used 5 times, while Yahushua is used once.

    Yah means “I Am,” while SHUA and SHA both contain the Hebrew root, yaSHA, meaning deliverance. So Yahusha means, “I Am your Deliverer!” Yahusha did in FACT come in His Father’s Name!

    It is important to note that the form “YESHUA” has been adapted to form the acronym “YESHU,” a mutilation of Yahusha’s Name used by unbelieving Yahudim during the late 1st and 2nd century CE. The letters in “YESHU” stood for the sentence, “may his name be blotted out“ (from the scroll of life). This “Yeshu” acronym is the real root of the form “JESUS”, after going through Greek, then Latin.

    Instead of using YHWH, the scribes simply put the words “LORD” or “LORD God” to hide the Father’s Name. The title of YHWH is “Elohim,” and this word was replaced by the word “God” over 6,000 times.

    “…Behold, the LYING pen of the SCRIBES has certainly worked deceit and WRITTEN them WRONG. The wise are ashamed; they are terrified and are captured.” Jeremiah 8:8

    Tyndale translated the New Testament into the English language of the common people and was the first to use the letter (j) in the spelling of Christ’s Name, rendering it “Jesus.” And about the same time, Spanish-speaking people took this same English spelling and pronounced it “Hay-soos”(which is an accurate pronunciation of the Greek spelling).

    Now realize that hey-soos is a legitimate Hebrew word! The name Jesus transliterated into Hebrew is “hey-soos.”

    There is only ONE word for “horse” in Hebrew, which in Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance is Hebrew word #5483 “soos.” It is used a total of 34 times in the Old Testament. ”Hey” in Hebrew means “the,” “Soos” in Hebrew means “horse,” so Hey-soos literally means: “THE HORSE!”

    Hebrew is the language of the Father and all the heavenly host, with the Savior’s Name coming from YHWH’s throne in heaven. And the Hebrew-speaking Apostles NEVER called their Messiah (Jesus) “Hey-soos” – the HORSE! So, just so we are all aware, Hey-soos does not mean Savior, nor salvation, nor deliverance – it means: the HORSE.

    So, to recap, “Jesus” is derived from Strong’s Greek #2424 Iesous, pronounced hey-soos, which is the Hebrew word for “the horse.” And remember that the Apostle Paul heard the heavenly messenger of the Messiah say in Hebrew “hey-soos” each time one of the horses was mentioned of we hear in the book of Revelation.

    Thanks for listening, 777denny

    At that fateful moment, Adam and Eve are standing together at the tree, and although only the woman and the serpent speak, Adam was present, and it seems he accepted the fruit that his wife handed him. He was fully complicitous, and indeed, Yahweh holds him responsible. Yahweh reproaches Adam. Adam says: Well, Eve handed to me. She gave it to me. Eve explains, the serpent tricked me. Yahweh vents his fury on all three, and he does so in ascending order: first the serpent for his trickery and then the woman, and finally the man. The doctrine of original sin, which is the idea that humans after Adam are born into a state of sin, by definition. The actions of Adam and Eve bring death to the human race, they don’t bring a state of utter and unredeemed sinfulness. In fact, humans have moral choice in each and every age. Adam and Eve after eating the fruit of the knowledge of good and bad, they also lose their harmonious relationship with nature. There had been a peaceful relationship between creatures and humans to that point. Humans are banished now from the Garden. It used to yield its fruits to them without any labor, but now humans have to toil for food and the earth yields its fruits only stintingly. The humans will learn that the concomitant of their freedom is responsibility. Their first act of defiance is punished harshly. So they learn, that the moral choices and actions of humans have consequences that have to be borne by the perpetrator. Evil is a product of human behavior, not a principal inherent in the cosmos; man’s disobedience is the cause of the human predicament. So knowledge or wisdom or perhaps moral freedom, seems to come at a very high price.

    The disobedience happens in a rather backhanded way. It’s interesting, Yahweh tells Adam before the creation of Eve that he’s not to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and bad, lest you die. Eve doesn’t hear this command directly, she hasn’t been created. Then we meet the cunning serpent, and although many will identify the serpent as Satan, an enticer, a tempter, some sort of evil creature, the serpent doesn’t seem to be so. The serpent in Eden is simply a talking animal.

    Adam and Eve after eating the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and bad are like Yahweh; they have become wise in that they have learned they have moral choice. They have free will, they can defy Yahweh and Yahweh’s plans for them in a way that animals and natural phenomena cannot. But now that means there is a serious danger here, Yahweh says, “Now that the man has become like one of us, knowing good and bad, what if he should stretch out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and life forever!” So the acceptance of mortality as an inescapable part of the human condition, the quest for immortality, Yahweh could not afford to allow them access to the tree of life, and Yahweh maintains the upper hand in this, the fact that they eventually must die. Yahweh has to punt the ball, he has to modify his plans by barring access to the tree of life, humans are going to be a force to be reckoned with. Because of the length of these reasoning’s, read more at,


    Thanks for any insight.

    My name is “Bising” in Malay Language meaning “Loud” so will you have the right to translate my name and call me “Mr. Loud” or you refer to me as “Mr Bising” if so than you are explaning my name rather than addressed me, i.e ( from Noun to Verb). Thus what justification of translating the meaning Yeshua when refering to Yeshua.
