Thread: Jesus name in Aramaic

  1. #1

    Jesus name in Aramaic

    I was searching youtube to try to find out how to pronounce Jesus's name in Aramaic and what I found is that his name is Eashoa. Pronounced like E-Sho. Has anyone else came to this conclusion while trying to find out his name in the language that he used?

    Thanks.

    You will get a host of answers on this one. Yeshua, Yahushua, Eashoa, Yehoshua, Yashaya, Isa, Iesous and more. And everyone who presents their case for His "real" name will tell you that they have concrete evidence.

    All I can tell is that I don't know how to pronounce His name the way the angel pronounced it to both Mary and Joseph. But I'm so glad it doesn't matter. Even today, all over the world when people pray in Jesus' name and preachers preach about Jesus, there are a wide variety of languages going on - Chinese, Spanish, French, and English, but He hears us all no matter how we say His name.

    Sadly, there are a TON of self-proclaimed experts on this, and most don't know Hebrew and have no understanding of linguistics. In short, Yehoshua [Ye-ho-shua] (emphasis placed in the last four letters "shua") is Hebrew, Yeshua [Ye-shua] is Aramaic but is also the accepted short form of Yehoshua in Hebrew. Personally, I tend to think he was named Yehoshua but many called him Yeshua since among Jews, Aramaic was the language of Judea at the time. I do agree with Jayne in that He hears from a pure heart, not proper pronunciation. Yet, I do personally find myself drawn to use a form He heard with His own ears, I guess it is just a respect thing my parents instilled in me!

    Re: Jesus name in Aramaic

    His name in Aramaic is the same as the word "salvation" in Hebrew. Fairly common in the 1st century by the way. The man pardoned that the crowd was screaming for pardon by Pilat was (Yeshua) bar Abba (son of God). Interesting play on words.

    Not exactly.... Yeshua (H3442) means "he will save." Yehoshua (H3091) means "YHWH is salvation." This is why I PERSONALLY believe he was given the Hebrew name over the Aramaic. God has always tabbed a descriptive title to his name when doing something He desires to be memorialized. I will share a few using "YHWH" but most are familiar with Jehovah.

    YHWH-Ra'ah means YHWH (or the Lord) my Shepherd
    YHWH - Rapha means YHWH (or the Lord) who heals
    YHWH - Yireh means YHWH (or the Lord) provides

    Yehoshua is simply YHWH - Shua meaning YHWH (or the Lord) is salvation. Since this is "God in the flesh" and because He was named ______ because "he will save his people from their sins," then I personally see Yehoshua fitting better than Yeshua but I can see where either work so it is no issue to me which you prefer. Incidentally, "Jesus" is transliterated from the Latin Iesus, which was transliterated from the Greek Iesous, which came from Yeshua, not Yehoshua. James Strong (Strong's Concordance) has "Jehoshua" (the J once carried the Y sound) as the underlying word for Jesus.

    "Yeshua" was a common name in the first century. That was his name.
    By the way the Septuagint has Joshua's name as "Iesus."

    More common than you might realize, like over 25% of the male population born during Roman occupation! A case can be made for either side Keck, but nobody can say with 100% certainly it was ____. Like I said, James Strong has Yehoshua as the underlying Hebrew for Jesus, and "Iesous" for Joshua as you point out, and Joshua in Hebrew is Yehoshua not Yeshua, means it can be either. Generally Keck, and I have spent considerable time on this, Yehoshua was used by those who were tied more closely to the Temple and religious practices of the day. Yeshua was the short form of that name.... and most were named Yeshua. But, because of the description in Matthew 1:21, as well as all the times throughout the Tanach God has simply added a title to a practice of His (see my last post), and considering how closely Joseph and Mary appear to be to people like Zachariah and Elizabeth, I tend to think Hebrew. Throw in him speaking to Paul on the Damascus road in Hebrew not Aramaic... I just lean this way. You can lean whichever way you want.

    Amen. A rose is a rose.


    And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven. Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language.
    (Act 2:5-6)

    We can simply acknowledge Him as creator of all, biblically speaking.
