Jesus is not from Zeus.

Hello Friends,

The Name 'Jesus' is not from 'Zeus"

If the New Testament or just Matthew was written in Hebrew where is the preserved manuscript?
Psalm 12:6 The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.
Psalm 12:7 Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.

1 Peter 1:23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.
1 Peter 1:25 But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.

There in not an ancient Hebrew manuscript for the New Testament. The Shem Tov is not acceptable. It is considered a poor translation of Greek.

Jesus the Christ's name was given in Aramaic. His mother tongue is Aramaic. Looking at Dr. J. Gresham Machen's Greek grammar on page 141, I read three words of this five declension grammar that show me the transliteration of Jesus' name found in Aramaic changed to Greek.

Meaning: in the Genitive Case, the Dative Case, and the Vocative Case the Greek is 'Iesou' transliterated. In Aramaic, the Word for Jesus is 'Yeshua'; it could be pronounced similar to the Greek. Then from Greek to English is found 'Iesous' the Nominative Case which is our 'Jesus'. Which can be pronounced the same way. So, Jesus does not come from Zeus!

The Bible has been translated to state the sign written above Jesus was written in Hebrew, Greek and Latin. Some scholars believe Hebrew should have been translated Syriac/Aramaic not Hebrew. They are looking at the Greek word there and other places where the same word could possibly be used to mean Syriac/Aramaic not Hebrew. To me, it definitely meant Aramaic/Syriac not Hebrew.
There are times in the Gospels where Jesus is quoted; the quotes are given in Syriac/Aramaic.

I have written a N.T. Syriac/Aramaic grammar and am translating the Peshitta.

I am presently teaching a N.T. Syriac/Aramaic course for the seminary.

Yeshua is Jesus' name in Aramaic.

In Jesus,
Dr. Klein
