Jesus

"I have come in my Father's name [YAH-shua], and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name [Jesus}, him ye will receive." - John 5:43

Yeshua vs. Jesus

Yeshua is our Savior's name. The name Yeshua is a shortened version of the earlier Yehoshua (Joshua) which is a combination of Yahweh + yasha, meaning Yahweh saves. He was prophesied in the Old Testament and His life and teachings are told to us in the New. He died so that all that believe in Him can be free from the bondage of sin and gain eternal life with Him in the Kingdom of Heaven. He is the way, the truth, and the life. Yeshua is the only begotten Son of God. He is not part of a trinity. He does not seek glory but said instead that glory should be given to His Father. He is the Messiah of spiritualIsrael (those who keep the commandments of the Father and faith in His Son).

Jesus is the English translation of the Latin Iesus, translated from the Greek Iesous, translated from the Hebrew/Aramaic Yeshua. Not only is his name different but Jesus a different person from our Lord entirely. Jesus is "God the Son", "God in the flesh", the second person of the trinity. He is the central figure of worship for the vast majority of Christians (excluding many Catholics who focus more on their Queen of Heaven).

Jesus is also referred to as Christ, from the Greek christos meaning anointed or anointed one, which was used to describe their sun god Helios.. Christos Helios. And Christos originates from the Greek/Roman god Chrestos, who was the Greek/Roman variant of the Egyptian sun god Osiris. In fact, Jesus Christ is just another personification of the ancient sun god who has been worshipped throughout history under 100 different names. This is why sun symbolism can be found in nearly every culture and religion, including Christianity (more on this below). 

The Image of Jesus

We find images of Jesus throughout Christendom. First off, this is a direct violation of the 2nd Commandment...

"Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them" - Exodus 20:4-5

And how does Jesus look in these images? He is depicted with long hair. The Israelites didn't have long hair. 1 Cor. 11:14 tells us that if a man has long hair he is dishonoring himself. Jesus is also commonly depicted as effeminate, sometimes even androgynous. There is a reason for this which will be explained shortly. He is also often shown giving various hand signs. The wicked communicate through signs and symbols, not the righteous, especially not the Son of God. 

"A wicked man walketh with a froward mouth. He winketh with his eyes, he speaketh with his feet, he teacheth with his fingers". - Proverbs 6:13
