Yeshua came to earth with His Father's name recorded in John 17, Verses 6, 11, 12, and 26, it is written that He gave to His disciples the name His Father gave to Him. Yeshua was born a Hebrew Jew and will return as a Hebrew Jew. He was born of the seed of David and in the city of David which is called Bethlehem. We must understand, our Savior was “raised up in the Middle East,” where their names are NOT changed. The Name, YESHUA, means "SALVATION.”
Yeshua's parents were betrothed to each other. Betrothal is the first of two stages of a biblical Hebrew-Jewish (Yehudi) marriage. Yeshua was circumcised on the eighth day (brit milah), as is the custom for the birth of Hebrew Jewish boy. Yeshua was born to be the Savior of the world and the Messiah (Mashiach) of both houses of Israel (Judaism and Christianity). When looking at traditional Judaism (House of Judah) and Christianity (House of Israel), it was understood that the Jewish Messiah (Mashiach), Yeshua, would be born from the seed of David.
In Romans 1:3, it is written, "concerning His Son, who came of the seed of David (Dawid) according to the flesh." Again in Hebrews 7:14, we find, "For it is perfectly clear that our Master arose from Yehudah, a tribe about which Moshe never spoke of concerning priesthood." Revelation 5:5, declares, "And one of the elders said to me, "Do not weep. See, the Lion of the tribe of Yehudah (Judah), the Root of Dawid (David), overcame to open the scroll (the book) and to loosen its seven seals."
When Yeshua was born, the angel Gabri'el spoke to Mary (Miryam, her Hebrew name), the Hebrew Yehudi (Jewish) mother of Yeshua. In Luke 1:30-32, it is written, "And the messenger, said to her (Miryam), "Do not be afraid, Mary (Miryam, Hebrew name), for you have found favour with Elohim. And see, behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Yeshua (Hebrew name). He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His Father Dawid (David)."
REMEMBER, YESHUA IN HEBREW "MEANS SALVATION"
The whole bible is a Hebrew book, NOT an English book.
In Hebrew thought, a name is given to a person to represent a person’s character, identity, purpose, or destiny. A name represents who a person is to be. One of the roles of our Hebrew-Jewish Messiah (Mashiach) is to redeem the House of Jacob and save the world from our sins. Therefore, our Hebrew-Jewish Messiah (Mashiach) was named Yeshua, which means in Hebrew, “salvation,” because our Messiah would SAVE His people from our sins.
In Matthew (Mattityahu) 1:21 (NKJV), it is written: "And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name [Yeshua], for He will save His people from their sins.”
THE IMPORTANCE OF A NAME
The messenger, Gabri'el, gave instructions to Mary (Miryam) to name the Hebrew Jewish Messiah. His Name, meaning "salvation," represents His character, identity, purpose, and destiny in the heart of Elohim of Israel (even today), and it still remains. The names of the patriarchs also represents a person’s character, identity, purpose, or destiny; for example, Abraham (Avraham), Isaac (Yitzchak) and Jacob (Ya’acov).
The God of Israel NEVER authorized "ANOTHER name." In no way, "would the God of Israel" give His "Holy Son" an English name (living in the Middle East). The name, "Jesus," has no inherent meaning. Sadly, His Holy Name was compromised, stolen, and replaced by traditions of men approximately five hundred years after Yeshua "left the earth."
John 17 (The Sacred Prayer)
The prayer Yeshua prayed in John 17 before going to the cross was "left upon the earth." His Cry To The Father was prayed as a confirmation that He (Yeshua) indeed left His Father's name upon the earth, again, let us NOT FORGET, His name was left upon the earth for His disciples who can receive it. You will find it recorded that He indeed left His name with His disciples "then and now" in His prayer recorded four (4) times in Verses 6, 11, 12, and 26 in John, Chapter 17.
We have all been "graced" for thousands of years, calling on a translated name NOT authorized by Elohim.
Holy Father, forgive us all
and We your Disciples
thank You for "GRACING" us in ignorance
for centuries of NOT knowing the truth.
