Meaning of the baby name JESUS.


JESUS.  Biblical. [Latin Jesu, Jesus; Greek Iesous, from Hebrew Yehoshua (Yeshua) = "Joshua" = "Jehovah (his) salvation" (Gesenius); "Jehovah (is) salvation" (Oxford Bible), or "Jehovah Saviour"].

    (1) Joshua, the military leader in the wars of Canaan (Acts vii. 45A.V.; Heb. iv. 8A.V.).  In both cases the R.V. judiciously inserts in the text "Joshua."
    (2) The son of Eliezer, and the father of Er, in the ancestry of our Lord (Luke iii. 29R.V.).  The A.V. calls him Jose.
    (3) [Jesus Christ] (Matt. i. 25; iii. 13, etc.).
    (4) A Jewish convert to Christianity, called also Justus, associated with St. Paul (Col. iv. 11).
    The name seems to have been a common one among the Jews of the Greek-speaking period.  About twelve people who bore it are mentioned by Josephus. (The Sunday School Teacher's Bible Manual, Hunter, 1894)
