Aw, Jeez! This is going to start another fight.

While my belief system has been pretty much shut down, in the religious sense, for the past few decades, I do like to get into some of the historical bits that have caused religions to arise or evolve. Between episodes of reading the US Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act and the Canadian Charter of Human Rights, Notwithstanding Clause, I happened across this revelation.

It is most proper to call Him Yeshua. It was indeed his proper name, given to him by his parents, and only in Hebrew does this name have any meaning. In Hebrew Yeshua means both "Salvation," and the concatenated form of Yahoshua, is "Lord who is Salvation." The name Jesus has no intrinsic meaning in English whatsoever.

Well, you could have blown me over with a feather. My Kokanee got warm. And this is no half-baked group of nuts! This is the Essenes telling us. They should know about this too, since they are the original Christians.

Does this mean the local pastor will have to change his cry of "Praise JAY-Suss"? Next they'll be telling us that he wasn't white.
