    This guy is starting to sound like google translator.
    "Yeshua, spelled יֵשׁוּעַ (Yēšūă‘) or ישוע in Hebrew was a common name among Jews of the Second Temple Period, and is thought by some scholars and religious groups to be the Hebrew or Aramaic name for Jesus. In modern Hebrew, Yeshu (ישו) and Yeshua (ישוע) are in fact the common transcriptions for Jesus."

    I liked the effort though

    Jesus is the anglicized of the latinized of the Greek of the Hebrew of Yeshuah. It`s complicated. Like saying my name is Mike, but in Spanish its Miguel, and in French its Michelle, etc. Christ is anglicized from the Greek `Cristos`, which means Messias, or Messiah, the Anointed One. It`s a title attached to his name. So, yes, it IS taking the Lord`s name in vain, and breaking that commandment. Smarty-pants.

    theres actualy a really great explination for all of this: Christ comes from Chritos meaning `the anointed one` and Jesus was used because generaly people in the ancient world couldnt read and if Joshua was used there would be two of them in the bible so they used the greek adaptation Jesus
    also the Iranian prophet Zorasters real name is Zarathushtra but the religion is still Zoroastrianism

    but if someone yelled "Hey, Michelle!" you wouldn`t turn round and look at them

    His actual name is not important, the point is you`re supposed to be respectful towards Jesus/Joshua/YHWH/whatever you want to call Him.

    MildCorma: of course it`s humor. Making a joke IS a type of humor. You`re not going to win any smart points for stating that. But you will win douche bag points for telling people that just because it`s humor it`s ok. With that logic let`s make fun of rapping small girls. It`s humor and not disrespectful or ignorant at all.

    Yeah, the more interesting one is the one he failed to elaborate on:

    Christ comes from the Greek "Christos" (Spelled incorrectly, my Ancient Greek isn`t great) which means "Anointed One" or "The Messiah".

    Basically it`s a title. It`s not a name. "Jesus the Messiah".

    However, here`s the thing. A name is anything by which something is called. Most people can`t pronounce Baalthazaq properly (Bael tha za(arabic qaf)) or my real name ((Glottal stop) m r) doesn`t mean they`re not talking about me.

    Basically, he is called Jesus. That is his name. It wasn`t his name in the 1st century, but it is now. (Unless you`re Muslim, in which case he is called Easa).

    all true, his name would have been "yeshwa ben joses" and if you believe in the virgin birth you might actually call him "yeshwa ben yahweh" because people were known by their first name (in this case yeshwa) and "son of" (ben) and their fathers name (joses or yahweh).

    That practice came about in the middle ages, a bit after Jesus/Josh`s time. I think Jewish people were only forced to get surnames when they came to Europe.

    My name in english is Michael. In Mexico it`s Miguel. In Russia, it`s Mikhail. Either way, it`s the same name. So, wheather you call him Jesus, Joshua, Yashua, or the Prince of Peace, unless you are refering to him, then you ARE taking his name in vain. However, this rule only refers to Christians, Jews and Muslims who follow the old Testimate. (Yes, all three use the same book, just with diferent names.) As Christians, using Jesus name in vain is just like Calling God`s name for no reason. Any other religion (Buddah, Hindu, etc) has no rule of using their dietys name in vain. Ten Commandments are aimed soley at followers of the God of Moses, Abraham and Adam. That means Musliims, Jews and Christians.

    ...Does it really matter? I don`t see the point in arguing over such stupid things - if people want to be religious, and worship Jesus or whatever his name is, let them. It`s not like they`re doing any harm. Making a big deal out of something as pointless as semantics of the name "Jesus" just seems like a petty attempt to annoy people.

    That practice came about in the middle ages, a bit after Jesus/Josh`s time. I think Jewish people were only forced to get surnames when they came to Europe.

    It was formalised in the middle ages, primarily to make taxation easier to impose. Jews ~2000 years ago did refer to lineage, though. In a formal context, something like `Yeshua, son of Yosef` would fit well enough, which would sort of be Jesus Josephson in English.

    Incidentally, the picture is wrong. `Jesus` is not a Greek translation of Yeshua. It`s an English mistransliteration of a Greek transliteration of a Hebrew name, possibly passing through Latin on the way.

    Also, `Christ` is a title ("anointed one") and that`s also a transliteration (from Greek to English). It has nothing to do with anyone`s name.

    My stab at an English version:

    Yeshu the Anointed.

    It`s only blasphemy if you believe you`re referring to the person you think you`re referring to, i.e., the Son of God. So, since most people believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, it IS blasphemy. Nice try, though.

    Except for the undeniable fact that he was a real person who actually lived. Whether he was the Son of God is a matter of faith, but your historical ignorance and stupidity are astounding.

    I`m sorry for my mouth, but what a drattard.
    First, history error. It`s Yehoshua, not "Yeshua."

    Though, what bugs me is that he is saying that language has a theology to it.
    It just is. If you say "Jesus", then you`re probably thinking of the dude who died on the Cross.

    Jesus was real.

    However, the matter of his divinity is still questioned. Some believe him to be wholly divine, some divine and human, some a prophet, and some just a human.

    Christ, may I also add, is derived from the Greek for "Messiah".

    This is an IDIOT standing in front of a blackboard where he is trying to look intelligent, but proving his own moronic lack of knowledge on the subject instead.

    Firstly:

    Jesus (Yeshua) means in Hebrew "salvation". There are two common translations of the name, based on meaning rather than sound:

    "You will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call his name Jesus; that is, “God saves”. (Luke 1:30-32)

    That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet , saying, “Behold, the virgin shall be with Child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Emmanuel,” which is translated “God with us.” (Matthew 1:21-23, citing Isaiah 7:14)

    Secondly, no-one had surnames back then; Christ is not a surname.

    "We have found the Messiah, which is, being interpreted, the Christ." (John 1:41)

    "I know the Messiah, the Christ, comes." (John 4:25)

    Joseph wasn`t his dad either. JC is technically a bastard making Mary either an unfaithful wife or having a child out of wedlock... It sounds really bad, but that`s how the bible depicts that situation.

    So, Christ is a title, as in, THE Christ, same as THE Buddha was not Siddhārtha Gautama`s name. Jesus, Joshua, and Emmanuel are all names associated with him, depending on translation and meaning.

    jesus was real, its the invisible man who he said was his father that wasnt. You see mary had sex with some random guy, got pregnant, and told Joe she`s never had sex before, so to continue the charade she paid 3 men to come and give gifts to him (probably with sex as she was poor you know). Then when jesus was old enough to think she told him he must be the son of God because she never had sex with anyone and yet he was here.

    > to continue the charade she paid 3 men to come and give gifts to him

    When you`re stupid and ignorant, shut up so other people won`t know. What 3 men are you referring to? The Bible says "wise men from the East", it never mentions 3 of them, and since they were probably Chinese kings (since the Bible says it took them two years to get there), there were probably hundreds of people in their retinue.

    > Then when jesus was old enough to think

    Well he was approaching 2 when they got there, most kids are thinking well before that.

    66stang, is it so impossible that God can extend his holy penis and unload his Jesus juice inside Mary? Of course he told her "This never happened" So He hath said it, so His will be fulfilled, she was a virgin again.

    A friend of mine was just discussing the topic of Christ with me. She said her belief is that Mary was not an actual virgin but a woman who claimed herself virgin again as a way to repent for her sins. We have come to think that Jesus did have a biological father, probably Joseph or some other dude who left before he was born but why should that mean God isnt his Father? It kinda makes sense that by him being the son of God doesnt mean literally, but how we all are "His children". I know I have a blood father but Ive never really known him so sometimes I tell people that "God is my only father". Jesus was a very spiritual/religious man (obviously) and maybe it was just that he had devoted his life to serving God, which made him holy and pure. And then after ages of playing telephone with the meanings of the words in that old history book, people might have exaggerated the actual meaning a little bit. It would make the Bible still true to its word, just misunderstood

    To piggyback off of ajkopp:

    Historically, Jesus Christ was a real man--he was an apocolyptic preacher who followed John the Baptist, and there is no proof that he was divine/holy, or really was the son of God--he was just another preacher. He tended to stay away from big cities because no one there believed his words, and when he spoke to farmers he made simple analogies they could understand (like comparing faith to a mustard seed).

    There is really no proof he was the "son of God"--but that`s where faith comes in.

    ok some smart ass made a theorie to make people laught well im going to destroy that theory:

    even IF Jesus is not is first name "Christ" was never used as a last name, he is THE Christ, meening "son of gon" or something like that.
    enyway his name is Jesus of Nazaret it might not be his real first name but it`s how we refer to it thus making it a blasphemy AND using "Christ" in vein is a blasphemy, like is you`d say "DAMN POPE, I hit my small toe"

    there now the guy looks even more stupid... and I look neardy+christian... anyway this is one of the WORST relegions there is!

    Pizza boy, you really should learn to spell if you`re going to try to prove anyone wrong. It makes you look really bad. I laughed at your post more than that awesome picture though because you really suck at spelling. By the way, its THEORY not THEORIE.
    By the way, saying "Jesus Christ" is not taking "the lord`s name in vain" because Jesus was just a normal person, not some holy figure that saved mankind. You can`t be the son of something that is non-existant. I love the bible though, it`s truly a fictional masterpiece.

    Pizza Boy, I agree that you should try to use a spellchecker, it would make your argument that much stronger. I would also advise proper punctuation. You also didn`t destroy his argument.

    His argument was as follows: "It is blasphemy to use the Lord`s name in vain (unstated), and the Lord was not named "Jesus Christ" as commonly accepted. Therefore it is not blasphemy to say "Jesus Christ."
    His argument however suffers from the fact that it is improperly formatted.
    The format was basically: a is b, b is not c, so c is not a. I could say "it is a crime to commit arson, burglary is not arson, therefore burglary is not a crime."
    An argument is bad if the form is bad. His form was bad, so his argument was bad.

    killmetwice - atheist or not, you can`t say Jesus was a "normal person". He was either the world`s greatest salesperson/con, exactly who he said he was, or a completely fictional character. He`s the head of a major world religion, no matter which of the three is true - hardly "normal".
