The Name Above All Others

A couple of years ago, I researched why we English-speaking-folk say, “Jesus” instead of “Yeshua”. Does it make sense that we translate His name – the veryname that will cause every knee to bow and every tongue confess His lordship??

My research revealed that some English-speaking people still do call Him “Yeshua”; they say that doing so is beautifully intimate. They also say, that although they wish all Christians would experience this level of intimacy with the God-man, they are thankful for the translation since the word “Jesus” is so often profaned.

Perhaps the use of “Jesus” is like a protection of that which is truly sacred… His true name: Yeshua.
