Other Word Forms of Jesus
Origin of Jesus
From Ancient Greek Ἰησοῦς (Iēsous), from Hebrew ישוע (yeshúa). The Greek text makes no distinction between Jesus and Joshua, referring to them both as Ἰησοῦς (Iēsous). The Latin Vulgate is likely the earliest to make a distinction, referring to Jesus as Iesus and Joshua as Iosue.
Middle English from Late Latin Iēsus from Greek Iēsous from Hebrew yēšûă‘ from yəhôšûa‘ Joshua Joshua1
