Why do we call Him Jesus
He was born with the name of Iesous ( pronounced ee-ay-sooce )
Yeshua is transliterated Hebrew in English. "Jesus" is English, which in itself is ultimately etymologically derived from a transliteration of "Yeshua" into the Greek Iesous. In any case, it's irrelevant, because a name is no more "correct" in one language than in another; that is to say, calling Jesus by that name is no different than calling him Yeshua or Iesous- they are all just linguistic tags attached to a concept. Languages have their rules and forms, so to claim that the Hebrew form is the "official name" is a little half-baked. Juan and John, Pedro and Peter, James and Iago; these names all mean the same thing; neither is "more correct". "Jesus" is the proper and (certainly) the near-universal English name-form. So then we would say additionally, "Jesus" would be the proper usage.
