The Greek name Zeus is spelled entirely
different from the Greek transliteration of
the Hebrew name Yeshua.
Greek spelling of the name Zeus would be the equivalent of the English
spelling DIOS. The name we pronounce Zeus
starts with a D.
English name Zeus, written in Greek - DIOS
From an inscription in Athens Greece
Bottom..The English name Jesus written in Greek - IESOUS
It has also been stated that the English name Jesus is
associated with the name of Dionysius, the son of Zeus.
That is not true.
As seen in the inscription to the left the name Dionysius also begins with
the Greek letters for the name Zeus (DIO) and is in no way similar to the
Greek spelling of the English name Jesus.
The supposition that the English name Jesus is
derived from the name of the pagan god Zeus is now being taught as fact.
It is being preached from pulpits and appears in popular books. The
result is that unsuspecting people are being persuaded that the basis of New
Testament, that is Greek manuscripts, cannot be trusted. They are
encouraged to believe that the Greek writers had an agenda to intentionally
corrupt our New Testaments.
In an effort to determine the truth I
personally made a trip to Greece to study inscriptions and to talk with experts
concerning the name Zeus. The conclusion of my investigation is that there
is no association with the name Zeus and that of Jesus.
Those who attempt to pronounce the name of
Messiah in a proper manner are to be commended. Those who present
unsupported theories as fact must stop. It is confusing and God is not the
author of confusion.
JOSHUA: was the word chosen by
the King James translators to represent the Hebrew spelling of the Biblical Joshua before Ezra and Nehemiah.
This word is pronounced YAH HO SHUA or YEH HO SHUA by those living in Israel today. It
seems that the HO pronunciation is due to the addition of the vowels of
Adonay to the word YHWH, in order to remind the reader to pronounce Adonay instead of YHWH, and
that the most pure pre- Babylonian Hebrew pronunciation would be YA-hu-SHOOa.
word is a combination of YAH and Oshea. The word means YAH is Salvation.

may search the land of Canaan,... of the tribe of Ephraim, Oshea the son of Nun.

that this is the "short form" of the name of Joshua that appears in
earlier scripture. This word is pronounced YES SHUA by those living in

name Yeshua which means YAH is SALVATION
