I recently saw this post,
“Jesus is not the name of the Messiah, you have to call upon the Messiah by his true name…You have to believe in Yah’s Salvation Yahshuah…Jesus is a vain name that means nothing, as you have seen from the previous question, The name Jesus was not in existence when the 1611 KJV translation came about…In ancient times what did they call the Messiah, remember they were Hebrews and they Spoke the Hebrew Language, they didn’t speak English because English wasn’t invented yet…”
I must accept the assumption that the writer himself is also condemned because he chooses to write “Yahshuah” using English letters instead of Hebrew… since English was not used by Jesus, Peter or Paul.
The fallacy in the argument is that “Jesus” means nothing. The word does mean something, something very significant. The word means a Person, the most significant Person in the world. Jesus means Y’Shuah. Jesus means God the Savior.
If the writer is correct, then even he is not worthy of salvation.
Actually, none of us is worthy of salvation. We are not saved by our own goodness. We are not saved by our ability to speak Hebrew.
For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. (Eph 2:8–10)
“For God has committed them all to disobedience, that He might have mercy on all.
Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and His ways past finding out!
“For who has known the mind of the LORD?
Or who has become His counselor?”
“Or who has first given to Him
And it shall be repaid to him?” (Ro 11:32–35)
