The Name of Jesus

Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name Philippians 2:9

Is the name Jesus pagan? There are some who are claiming the name Jesus is inaccurate, even some that go as far to say the name Jesus is a pagan variation of the name Zeus.  I’m here to tell you this is absolutely false and will show you how the name Jesus came about.

The Hebrew name of our Messiah is Yeshua (means Yahweh is Salvation)  when you translate that name directly to English it becomes Joshua. However, remember the New Testament was written in Greek, so when you translate Yeshua to Greek it becomes Lesous. When you translate Greek Lesous to English it becomes Jesus, If you want to prove this for yourself use Google translator

Is it wrong to call on the name of Jesus? Absolutely not, God never commanded us to only speak one language. If you call on the name of Jesus, he will hear you. However out of respect it doesn’t hurt to learn his Hebrew name and address him by it. When you say the name of Yeshua you are actually given praise to God (Yahweh) also because its in his name

So don’t be afraid to use the name Jesus or Yeshua, because this is the name above all names that brought salvation to the world in Jesus Name Amen

    I find myself going between Yeshua HaMashiach to Jesus to Jesus Christ, etc. He knows Who He is to us! 😉 I recite the Hebrew names of God to myself in prayer and I have learned some Hebrew prayers, because I just find it so soothing and comforting.

    Brother, I like it the way you approach everything with open-mindedness, non-judgment, grace, love and inclusiveness. It was Jesus’ prayer on the cross–that we, God’s children would all be one. May our God–the God of Jacob, Isaac and Abraham, continue to reveal Himself to you and increase your gift so that we would be blessed, and He would be glorified.
