Q: What name do you think Jesus was called by when he walked the earth? I’m certain that it was not Jesus. For one thing neither Hebrew nor Aramaic had a “J” sound like we have. I know he was called Issa or similar in India.
“Jesus” actually is Joshua: Yahoshua in Hebrew and Yeshua in Aramaic. (The Saint Thomas Christians in India call him Yeshua.)
In India Jesus was called Isha Nath. Isha means lord (as in Ishwara). Nath means master, but it indicated that he was a member of the Nath Yogi Order (Sampradaya). The Christ of India, which you can read on or download from our website, has more about this.
Note: You can get prints and mounted reproductions of the image of Jesus above (and much more) in a wide variety of sizes at SacredVisionsArt.com.
