Y - Yeshua



Yeshua is the Hebrew name for Jesus.  I don't necessarily think we should all start calling Him Yeshua instead of Jesus, though we could if we wanted to.

The thing that is most important to me about this name is that it is a reminder that Jesus does not belong to the United States, or English-speakers.

But Jesus doesn't only belong to the Hebrew-speakers, either.

"He says, 'It is too small a thing that You should be My Servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob and to restore the preserved ones of Israel; I will also make You a light of the nations so that My salvation may reach to the end of the earth.'"  Isaiah 49:6

There are so many more verses that explains that Jesus is the Savior of the world, not just for x people group.

It bothers me when Americans act as if God's purpose is to further the cause of the United States.  God's purpose is to further His Kingdom.  God and His purposes and His people were in existence long before the United States came to be, and if someday the United States is no longer, God and His purposes and His people will still be moving forward.

Honestly, I prefer it that way.  When you study the history of the world, you read about kingdom after kingdom and nation after nation that rises and falls.  I don't like to think about the possibility that the United States may someday not exist because I have never known life otherwise, but I know that my God rose once and will never fall.

  1. Kirra: Thank you for your interesting perspective on Jesus' Hebrew name. I had not thought about the United States using Jesus' name to further its causes as a matter of national superiority over other nations. I have, however, seen many North Americans rely too heavily on biblical teachings in upholding political principles, which is a pretty funny correlation between church and state. In any event, I agree with you that Jesus does not belong to the U.S., but to the world. I am glad that other religions feel comfortable in calling Jesus by other names.

  2. Thanks for your thoughts. I think my biggest problem is when people people mix patriotism and Christianity. My husband is Barbadian and often is uncomfortable in church on patriotic holidays, particular the one next week.

  5. I rarely leave a response, however after looking at a
    bunch of responses on "Y - Yeshua". I actually do have 2 questions for you if it's okay.

    Is it just me or does it give the impression like a few of these comments look as if they are written by brain dead folks?
    :-P And, if you are writing at other places, I'd like to follow anything fresh you have to post.
    Would you list of every one of all your social sites
    like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
