A couple of years ago, I researched why we English-speaking-folk say, â€œJesusâ€ instead of â€œYeshuaâ€. Does it make sense that we translate His name â€“ 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 â€œYeshuaâ€; 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 â€œJesusâ€ is so often profaned.
Perhaps the use of â€œJesusâ€ is like a protection of that which is truly sacredâ€¦ His true name: Yeshua.
