I want to thank Herman and Thomas for their replies. I
was reading a book where the author says that the
original name was "Yahoshua" and then the rabbinical
tradition changed it to "Yehoshua." I have searched my
dictionaries, but I have not been able to find any
reference to "Yahoshua." I have found a similar remark
on the Net:
(The so-called Sacred Name movement that
purports that the true name of the Messiah is
YAHushua or YAHoshua (or some variant
thereof) is founded on faulty linguistics and
esoteric doctrine. These people think that the
sacred Name (YHVH) is best rendered as YAHWEH,
and suppose that since Jesus said He came in His
Fathers Name (John 5:34), YAH must somehow
appear in the spelling of this name. Hence we
have YAHshua, or YAHoshua, or some other
spelling. This interpoloation of the phoneme YAH
comes at the expense of the original Masoretic
text and standard Hebrew usage. Some in this
movement go so far as to believe that you can
only be saved if you pronounce the Sacred Name
correctly! As a friend of mine pointed out, this
teaching is inherently anti-semitic, since in
order for this to be true, the "rabbis" must have
corrupted the text and deceived the people.
Moreover, according to them, the Greek New
Testament text has been corrupted as well, since
it does not directly contain the Sacred Name).
Since I don't know what to think, I decided to ask you
who know much more than I.
Thank you and best wishes,
