A Name doesn't change, why was our saviours' name changed from the original hebrew name (which one?) to other names like Yesu, Jesus, Yezu, Iesus and many others. I think this was a devil's trick to have oour saviour's name varnish/lost what is your opinion? Why don't we go back to the original name of our saviour?

Many names are pronounced different from itís original language, when it comes to different tongues, and countries. We donít know what Jesus name really was and who it was pronounced. Still, the name Jesus is the name weíre allowed by his Father Jehovah God to say. If it wasnít , and it was important to know his true name, we would know it. Satan didnít have any trick to make man play with Jesus name. because he knew Jesus wasnít the almighty God , (John 17:3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent). Satan did try to have Jesus Fatherís name removed, totally, from the bible. Even though we really donít know what his name is either. But the Almighty made sure it wasnít ,(Psa. 83:18 Exo. 6:3), Again he allowed us to use a name. which is ALSO said many ways, in different tongues. peace

Maybe God doesn't have a name that can be known to man. Isn't that why the Hebrew people didn't try to spell a name for the Creator? I haven't studied this too much, but I've heard that the tetragram YHWH can't be pronounced because it means the breath of life and sounds like breathing. That makes sense to me. Meanwhile people fight wars over "who is God?" "who are God's chosen"? "who is or is not accepted by God"? "Who does God love - who does he hate"? It's the sin nature in the flesh of humanity that deceives us into these unloving ways.

Because that's how the writers of the NT wrote it in Greek.

God knows if a person knows by faith if they identify with the name of Jesus or the name which mean the same name , as God knows all languages and some which are not spoken today ... So if someone may pray to a different Lord than Jesus, God will know and the prayer will not be heard ...

Yes, they do. Names change all the time.

In the U.S. we say "Japan." In Japan, they say "Nihon."

In the U.S. it's "John." It France it's "Jean." In Spain and Mexico it's "Juan." In proper Irish, you get "Sean."

In the U.S., we called it "Moscow." But in Russia, they say "Moskva."

In the U.S., we say "fries," but in England, the same food is "chips," and what we call "chips," they call "crisps." In England, the "trunk" of your car is the "boot," but in the U.S., a "boot" is footwear.

Names change all the time. Sometimes for meaning, and sometimes for cultural differences.

So "Jesus" in English was "Iesous" in Greek, but "Yeshua" in Hebrew, which is very likely the same name "Joshua" we have today.

Some things are hard to translate.
A pitty because the names tell something about the plan God had for the person. Most names contain "yah" the shorthand name for Father.
The most most famous name is "God Saves" :-)

I agree! It's not just a name, it's his description. So much is lost in the many bible translations. The original authors would be dismayed at what has happened to their writings..
