The Name

And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Jesus. Luke 1:31

I know in Whom I believe. I call Him Jesus.
The New Testament was written in Greek and His name was pronounced Iesous (ee-ay-sooce’).
Mary, a young Jewish woman, spoke Hebrew and named Him Yeshua.
The Arabs call Him Eesa.
In Italian He is Gesù.
Names differ from place to place. Even your name may differ from country to country.
Just because someone cannot pronounce your name the way you do, does not change who you are.
I’ve heard some declare that we should call Him Yeshua.
I’m good with that and know Whom they talk about.
I’m good with Jesus and also know Whom they talk about.
In Mexico when they speak of Hey-sooce, I know in Whom they speak.
Perhaps since people and languages differ in the pronunciation of His name, this is why in Rev 19:12 it says “He had a name written that no one knew except Himself.”
