NETBible.org has some great textual and translation notes. Also, the ability to look at the Hebrew/Greek parallel to the English. I have found it really useful when studying textual issues.

Here's a link to a good teaching series on the subject of the names of God.

Antithesis, actually Adonai is a transliteration of the Hebrew term "Lord."


Thanks for the lesson, LMPT I'll be honest, I was just using this site as a reference:


Really? I have lived a few years, been in a few churches and have never seen anything remotely resembling what you describe. Hmmmmm

Foxy, you've never seen the blond hair and blue eyed pictures? They're literally everywhere:

My point is your religion is flimsy as hades. Your Bible is iffy at best.

'Joshua' is the English version of transliterating: YaHUShA. Which in Hebrew Letters is YUD-HA-UaU-ShYN-AyYaN

The history of the J is only about 500 years old. It came from flourishes on the letter i/I. and in phonetic transliteration the i and the y are used for the Letter 'YUD'.
Also what is read in the English translations as Lord is actually YaHUaH (also transliterated in Psalms as: Jehovah) the Letter UaU is phonetically, because of Masoretic vowel points, pronouced sometimes as VaV, or V. Lord would be more equivalent to mention of Master, or Adonai/ADUN.

About those pictures of a blond, blue-eyed, light-skinned Jesus that decorate church walls.

They aren't accurate either.

Antithesis, actually Adonai is a transliteration of the Hebrew term "Lord." LORD (all caps) is used in most English translations of the Bible where the original Hebrew read the Tetragrammaton (YHWH, I Am). Unsure of the pronunciation, the vowels for Adonai were added hence the tern Jehovah (YaHoWeh, with Anglicized consonants). God's "name" is most accurately Yahweh. Since it became tradition in Jewish culture to not pronounce the Name Adonai was substituted. The Orthodox often use HaShem (literally, "the name) in its place.

1048. If you read the Bible you would discover that God said he would in time make a language for all to understand. The Word of God has been reviled. He has done that. why do you care so much for his name. He has many names. Emmanuel Savior Peace Christ Jesus The Lord God the Son of the Almighty. Maybe if you would start listening to his message and not to others you would find truth.

It becomes apparent why Christians are so confused. Their Bible can't even get their God's name right.

Technically it was Yehoshu'a, which is generally shortened to Yeshua and translated to "Joshua."

"Jesus" is a modern translation of "Son of God," but in Hebrew that phrase would have been "Ben Ha-Elohim." So "Jesus" wouldn't have made any sense to Him.

Incidentally, God's real name would be "Adonai," which translates to "I AM." Or maybe "Aleph v'Tav," which translates to "Alpha and Omega."

Jesus was called Joshua in his own time.
