Actually, I should have been more clear. I said they were written in Greek. While the OT was written in Hebrew, the NT was written in Greek. The apostles wrote in Greek, and never used "Yeshua" as his name.

Interesting that you point out the verb. I honestly wasn't aware of that. I'll have to do a study on it.

The apostles, for the most part, were uneducated fishermen. Matthew as a tax collector would most likely be able to read and write in both Aramaic, Hebrew, Latin, and Greek. The supposedly educated self professed Roman, the false prophet Paul, could probably write in Latin, Aramaic, or Greek, and it would probably depend on his audience as to what language he used. The testimony of Yeshua, given to the common people of Judea, would have been done in Aramaic. He would not have called Simon Bar Jonas, the Greek Petros, meaning stone, but would have used the Aramaic term Cephas. When Yeshua quoted the OT, it would have been from the Hebrew Script. The language of the common people at the time was Aramaic. The word "Jesus" didn't exist for another 1500 years. The term used among the apostles would have been Yeshua, meaning YHWH saves.

I'm sorry...you really just kinda lost me there. If you're going to reject what God has done through the apostle, and the early church, we really don't have a lot to talk about.

Yea, I canít remember what passage of the Tanakh it is in, but I remember reading the Tanakh in Hebrew and it saying something about G-d saving (Yeshua) His people...

Yeshua is merely a verb meaning to save...Also it means salvation, help, rescue...There is no mention of G-d in that word, so, no, it does not mean G-d saves...

The names of the main prophets are generally aligned with the name YHWH, such as Isaiah means YHWH is salvation:
From the Hebrew name יְשַׁעְיָהוּ (Yesha'yahu) meaning " YAHWEH is salvation", from the roots יָשַׁע (yasha') meaning "to save" and יָה (yah) referring to the Hebrew God. Isaiah is one of the four major prophets of the Old Testament, supposedly the author of the Book of Isaiah.

In Hebrew, the name Isaiah means - The Lord is generous. Salvation of the Lord. Gods helper.. Other origins for the name Isaiah include - Hebrew, Israeli.The name Isaiah is most often used as a boy name or male name. Hebrew Name Meaning - The Lord is generous.

In Hebrew it is Yeshayahu for Isaiah....יה is not in the word Yeshua ...
