"Free and critical minds can emerge only by a return to the source-the primary sources. A free and critical mind takes nothing for granted and is not intimidated by "authorities" who frequently may be more confused than the general public. Free and critical minds seek truth without chauvinism or shame." - Dr. Asa G. Hilliard III (1)



“One single bit of information, if missing, incomplete, out of order or just plain wrong, has the potential to significantly alter thought processes, conclusions, decisions and behaviors, even when that one single logic entry exists in a sea of accuracy.”

Multiple People Named Jesus & Yeshua & The Spirit Saves
Unity Consciousness #545

.

First Mention Of The Word “Jesus” In Each of the Gospels

Matthew 1:1 (CJB) “This is the genealogy of Yeshua the Messiah, son of David, son of Avraham”
(KJV) “The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.”

Mark 1:1 (CJB) “The beginning of the Good News of Yeshua the Messiah, the Son of God:”
(KJV) “The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God;”

Luke 1:31 (CJB) “Look! You will become pregnant, you will give birth to a son, and you are to name him Yeshua.”
(KJV) “And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name Jesus”

John 1:17 (CJB) “For the Torah was given through Moshe; grace and truth came through Yeshua the Messiah.”
(KJV) “For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.”

In previous messages, it has been established that the word “Jesus” is an interpretation of Jeshua which is a translation of Yeshua. As shown above, Yeshua is the word the Jewish Bible uses.

The Word “Jesus” Is Not Special or Divine

1. Yeshua is the word that was replaced with Jesus. Yeshua is used 30 times in Old Testament. None of these refer to Jesus. All of them refer to human beings like you and me.

2. Jeshua (Jesus) #2 - In the New Testament there is a person called Bar-Yeshua, which is translated as son of Jeshua; however, to be consistent with the New Testament of the KJV, Bar-Yeshua is interpreted as son of Jesus.
a) (KJV) “... they found a certain sorcerer, a false prophet, a Jew, whose name was Barjesus:” (Acts 13:6)
b) (CJB) “...they found a Jewish sorcerer and pseudo-prophet named Bar-Yeshua.”

3. Jeshua (Jesus) #3 - In the New Testament there is a person named Yeshua Bar-Abba, which is translated as Jeshua son of Abba; however, to be consistent with the New Testament of the KJV, Yeshua Bar-Abba is interpreted as Jesus son of Abba.
a) (KJV) “And they had then a notable prisoner, called Barabbas.” (Matthew 27:16)
b) (CJB) “There was at that time a notorious prisoner being held, named Yeshua Bar-Abba.”

4. Jeshua (Jesus) #4 - In the New Testament of the KJV, Saul and Timothy send greetings to a Jesus called Justus.
a) (KJV) “And Jesus, which is called Justus, who are of the circumcision. These only are my fellow workers unto the kingdom of God...” (Colossians 4:11)
b) Yeshua, the one called Justus, also sends greetings. These three are among the Circumcised; and among my fellow workers for the Kingdom of God...”

What Does Yeshua Mean?

Matthew 1:21 (CJB) “She will give birth to a son, and you are to name him Yeshua, [which means ‘Adonai saves,’] because he will save his people from their sins.”
(KJV) “And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins.”

What Does Adonai Mean?

2 Corinthians 3:16-17 (CJB) “But,” says the Torah, “whenever someone turns to Adonai, the veil is taken away.” Now, “Adonai” in this text means the Spirit. And where the Spirit of Adonai is, there is freedom.”
(KJV) “Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, the vail shall be taken away. Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.”

Some Understandings

1. Not only are there multiple Yehua's in the Old Testament, there are also multiple Yeshua's in the New Testament. Two out of the three other Yeshua's in the New Testament are called Jesus and the other one is called son of Jesus.
2. Adonai means the Spirit. It does not mean the Lord or God.
3. The name of baby Yeshua of Miryam of Johanan means “the Spirit saves.”
4. The name of all those other Yeshua's in the Old and New Testament also means “the Spirit saves.”
5. Jesus is a made up name to make it sound unique and more divine than another human but it is not.
