HOW ARE YOU SAVED BY THE 500 YEAR OLD NONBIBLICAL NAME JESUS
The Civil Writer Magazine
The English name for he who you call Messiah has changed over the years.
The Oxford Dictionary states that:
In the 1400's (Old English)=His name was Healand*
In the 1500's (Middle English)=His name was Iefus*
In the 1600's (Modern English)=His name was Jesus*
The letter J for Jesus did not come into existence until late in the 1500's and did not become popular until the 1600's. Therefore 500 years ago the letter "J" did not exist in any language on this earth, so NO letter "J" 500 years ago, and NO name "Jesus" 2,000 years ago.
The letter "J" is a fairly recent addition to the alphabet and unbiased research / historical data prove it's impossiblefor the names JESUS or JeHoVaH to have been part of any language in the ancient times. The man responsible for the letter “J” was Gian Giorgio Trissino an Italian Renaissance grammarian known as the father of the letter “J”.
In 1524, Gian Trissino made a clear distinction between the two sounds, I and the (new) J. Trissino’s contribution is important to know because once he distinguished the soft “J” sound, as in “jam”, Gian Trissino identified the Greek >“IESOUS” (a translation of the Aramaic “YeShuWA” H3443) as the Modern English “Jesus”, thus the current phoneme for “J” was born. And you say there is power in the name Jesus.

Original KJV "And Iefus entred" "paffed thoroth Iericho"
