Etymology of Jesus

Here’s a good explanation of the name Jesus:

“Jesus is actually an English corruption of the Latin, Iesus (Latin did not have a J).

Iesus, comes from the Greek Iesous (Greek was the language of the New Testament).

Iesous itself is a Greek transliteration of Aramaic, Yeshua (Jesus’s mother tongue was Aramaic).

The aramaic form of the name is a derivation of the old Hebrew name Yashua.

Yeshua – was a very common name in the Roman province of Judaea at the time.
