Question

What is original name of Jesus from Gabriel?

Answer

His original Hebrew name is יְהוֹשֻׁעַ (read: Yehoshua, Yoshua) and, its contruction form, ישוע (read: Yeshua). His daily name in Aramaic language is ישוע (read: Yeshue). This name was hellenized to Ιεσους (read “Iesuus”) because Jesus live in Hellenistic world, so he also spoke and was called in Greek in daily basis. Ιεσους (read “Iesuus”) was, then, anglicized to “Jesus” and arabicized to “Isa”.
