    He was born with the name of Iesousw, which is pronounced ee-ay-sooce ) so why did they translate the name to Jesus

      Good question! I'm sure someone will have the answer to that question and I will be just as interested to hear what is said about it.

      Hi friends

      His name was Issa son of Maryam as per Quran in Arabic which is a sister of Aramaic and Hebrew language which Jesus, Mary and the disciples spoke.

      The original Word of Revelation from the Creator-God Allah YHWH on Jesus has been lost ; what the Christians have in the form of gospels is only a diluted account of the Jesus'life and the Mary's life. The Christians believe out of only blind faith that it is ispired to the unbelieving scribes; only to add some credulity to it; which it in fact fails to add, miserably.

      I love Jesus and Mary as mentioned in Quran.

      Both Jesus and Christ mean "Messiah" from old Greek and Latin, respectively. smile

    I thought his name was Yoshua ben Josef. And Jesus is the Latin form of Yoshua.
    Bloody Romans, what have they ever done for us?

    I always wonder why people insert his middle initial though when ticked off - how do they know his middle initial is H? ....as in Jesus H. Christ!  and what does the H stand for? (sorry in advance for my lack of proper religious decorum)
