Original Message I see a lot of people representing for JC on these forums, which is cool, but I have to admit I still cringe a litte each time I read that name. Why? Because it's a very poor translation (at best) and a deliberate aberration (at worst).

Take Daniel - he was a hebrew and in hebrew his name was Daniyyel. See the similarity?

Michael - another hebrew name, and in hebrew it is Mikhael, see the similarity?

Yahushua, hebrew name, and we get Jesus, see the similarity? Would it help to know there is effectively no 'J' sound in the hebrew alphabet?

Ok, but if we change the Y to a J and anglicized it, best translation would be Joshua. Anyone in the bible have that name? Yep, bible believers know him from Exodus to Judges. How was his name written in the original hebrew - Yahushua. Oh snap.

So why Jesus then? Well you can read a book on how the Roman Holy Empire tarted up their pagan religion into Catholicism, but would it help if you knew their chief 'God' was called Zeus? And that Jesus can be pronounced 'he-zeus'.

What then about the title 'christ'. It comes from a greek word Kristos meaning 'anointed'. Who was called God's (Yahuah) anointed in the bible? Well the Kings of Israel for starters. King Saul and King David were called God's anointed. Somehow we don't call King David Christ.

So what's the hebrew say about the son of God? They called him the Mashiach - meaning messiah (saviour). Were there any other messiahs? Nope - He's the one.

If you're a good, honest person of any denomination or even non-denomination then I salute you, I'm not trying to point score. But if you are like me, you don't want to be deceived, so give this a thought and pray to our father Yahuah through his son Yahushua ha Mashiach (or Jesus if you must).
