Various Bibles, Dates & Their Evolution Into the Name Jesus
The Bible Evolution Into the Name Jesus
The name Jesus is a fairly new name. In fact, the 1611 King James Bible (a book many of us rely on) initially transliterated the name of the Son of God as “Iesus” instead of Jesus. The Strong’s Concordance tells us that it was pronounced “ee-ay-sooce” not Jesus.
The 1611 King James Bible did NOT use the letter “J” but the letter “I” to spell “Jesus”
The Greek influence slowly changed the Hebrew Name of our savior to a variant Greek name. In fact even now many Greek names end in ‘us’. Examples, Marcus, Julius, Augustus, Zeus, and of course Jesus. In fact, in Spanish, the name Jesus is spelled the same as the English, however, it is pronounced “HE-ZEUS”.
Why So Many People Continue To Use The Incorrect Name
Many people refuse to use the real name of our savior because of the emotional attachment they have to the name Jesus. However, the Bible commands us to worship God in Spirit and truth (John 4:23-24).
Over the years God [Yahweh] has blessed us and allowed us to grow spiritually even though people have come to know His Son by various names. Names such as Yeshua, Iesus, Iesous and now Jesus have been a blessing to those of us who used them because we have been ignorant of his real name. We have all had the experience of calling someone we met by a different name until they told us what their real name is. Once they have introduced their real name to us we no longer go about calling them a false name and we don’t get upset or offended that they correct us. When someone calls you by a name that is not yours, you politely tell them that your name is such and such. You don’t get mad at them because they simply didn’t know. Our Father shows us His mercy when we are in ignorance (when we don’t know).
(Acts 17:30-31 NIV) 30 In the past God [Yahweh] overlooked such ignorance, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent. 31 For he has set a day when he will judge the world with justice by the man [Yahshua] he has appointed. He has given proof of this to all men by raising him from the dead.”
We know that this is a lot of information for one to digest, but we feel it is needed and well worth it!
