Notes From This Study:

1 Corinthians 10:11
New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

11 These things happened to them to serve as an example, and they were written down to instruct us, on whom the ends of the ages have come.

Links to some of the stuff we talked about:

20 I am going to send an angel in front of you, to guard you on the way and to bring you to the place that I have prepared. 21 Be attentive to him and listen to his voice; do not rebel against him, for he will not pardon your transgression; for my name is in him.

His name is Yehshua, which means “Yah is salvation.”

The best translation from the Hebrew to Greek had already been done by the Hebrew Scribes of the Septuagint regarding their patriarch Joshua. That name comes from Yeshua in Hebrew.

When the Greeks wanted to turn a Hebrew name into a Greek name there were two ways to bring it across the language barrier: One way was by translation, which tries to capture the meaning of a word … but in the process, loses it’s sound. The other way was by transliteration, which tries to capture the sound of the Hebrew word … but in the process, loses it’s meaning. The latter is a huge problem when it comes to our Savior, Who’s name means “Yah is Salvation.”

The four Hebrew letters in the name Y’-Sh-U-A (Yod-Shin-Vav-Ayin) were transliterated to Koine Greek and then further distorted into English as follows:

The first Hebrew letter YOD has a “YE” sound. Unfortunately, the Greek language does not have a letter nor a diphthong that has the “Y” sound as in YES! The Greek solution was to pair the two letters IOTA-ETA to produce the sound “EE-AY” which was deemed to be close enough to the Hebrew sound “YE.”

The second Hebrew letter SHIN has the “SH” sound. This was an even bigger problem because the “SH” sound does not exist in Greek. The Greek solution was to employ the “S” sound made by the letter SIGMA.

The third Hebrew letter Vav has a “U” sound. The Greek diphthong “ou” OMICRON-UPSILON is an exact match because it has the same “OO” sound.

The fourth Hebrew letter AYIN has the “AH” sound. According to the Greek rules of grammar, masculine names never end in a vowel sound, and when they do, the name should always be closed with the letter “S” whenever possible. The Greek solution was to drop the final “AH” sound and close out the name with an “S.”

These four steps produce the name “Iesous” (IhsouV) which is pronounced “EE-AY-SOOS.” This is what later got turned into the English word “Jesus.” Again… it was invented out of thin air due to transliterations which completely obscure the meaning of the word.

Does Yeshua still answer us when we call Him “Jesus”? I do believe He does. But how much more pleasing is it to a person when they are addressed by the actual name they were given, as opposed to something that came through the hoops I’ve given above?

The Tribulation Protection Plan:

Exodus 34:21-24 (NLT)

21 “You have six days each week for your ordinary work, but on the seventh day you must stop working, even during the seasons of plowing and harvest.

22 “You must celebrate the Festival of Harvest with the first crop of the wheat harvest, and celebrate the Festival of the Final Harvest at the end of the harvest season. 23 Three times each year every man in Israel must appear before the Sovereign, the Lord, the God of Israel. 24 I will drive out the other nations ahead of you and expand your territory, so no one will covet and conquer your land while you appear before the Lord your God three times each year.

Leviticus 26:3-13 (NRSV)

3 If you follow my statutes and keep my commandments and observe them faithfully, 4 I will give you your rains in their season, and the land shall yield its produce, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit.5 Your threshing shall overtake the vintage, and the vintage shall overtake the sowing; you shall eat your bread to the full, and live securely in your land. 6 And I will grant peace in the land, and you shall lie down, and no one shall make you afraid; I will remove dangerous animals from the land, and no sword shall go through your land. 7 You shall give chase to your enemies, and they shall fall before you by the sword. 8 Five of you shall give chase to a hundred, and a hundred of you shall give chase to ten thousand; your enemies shall fall before you by the sword. 9 I will look with favor upon you and make you fruitful and multiply you; and I will maintain my covenant with you. 10 You shall eat old grain long stored, and you shall have to clear out the old to make way for the new. 11 I will place my dwelling in your midst, and I shall not abhor you. 12 And I will walk among you, and will be your God, and you shall be my people. 13 I am the Lord your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, to be their slaves no more; I have broken the bars of your yoke and made you walk erect.
