Which is correct Yeshua or Yahshua?
The pronunciation Yahshua is philologically impossible in the original Hebrew and has no support in archeological findings, such as the Dead Sea scrolls or inscriptions, nor in rabbinical texts as a form of Joshua. Scholarship generally considers the original form of Jesus to be Yeshua, a Hebrew Bible form of Joshua.
How do you say Jesus the Messiah in Hebrew?
Yeshua Hamashiach means ‘Jesus the Messiah. ‘ The original Hebraic name for Jesus would’ve been yeshu’a.
How do you write Yahshua in Hebrew?
Yeshua or Y’shua (ישוע with vowel pointing יֵשׁוּעַ – Yēšūaʿ in Hebrew) was a common alternative form of the name יְהוֹשֻׁעַ (Yəhōšūaʿ – Joshua) in later books of the Hebrew Bible and among Jews of the Second Temple period.
Is Yeshua the same as Yahushua?
In the Hebrew script, Yeshua ישוע is not spelled the same as Yahushua יהושע. The “Yeshua” name, spelled ישוע (Yod Shin Waw Ayin), is found in the books of Nehemiah and Ezra where it lists the names of those who returned from the Babylonian exile.
Why can’t the word “Yahshua” be pronounced as “ Yahweh” in Hebrew?
For this reason, יהושע cannot not be pronounced “Yahshua”. There are some who claim that “Yahshua” is actually the correct pronunciation of the Aramaic word יש ו ע (“Yeshua”) and the Hebrew scribes simply took out the proper vowel sounds, replacing the “Yah” with “Ye”. But as mentioned before, יש ו ע is not a legitimate Hebrew word. It’s Aramaic.
Is it Iesous or Yahushua?
Every text you mention uses the Greek form Ιησους/ Iesous, which is the form the apostles freely used from the Day of Pentecost – where the common tongue of the hearers was koine Greek – onward. For example, you quote: But in the original the name is Iesous. I am certain you have no other manuscript that has Yahushua.
Does the name “Yeshua” mean “salvation” in Hebrew?
So the name “Yeshua” and the Hebrew word “Y’shuah” are not the same. “Yeshua” is the Aramaic form of “Yahushua” and “Y’shuah” is the Hebrew word for “Salvation”. Therefore, in spite of what some may say, I find no evidence to suggest that ישוע (“Yeshua”) means “Salvation” in Hebrew.
