Hebrew name of the messiah

I had dedicated this blog to expounding the Hebrew in the Jewish Bible. This post is not worthy of this blog because it infringes on the grounds on another religion.

But then there are videos deceptively alleging that a Qabalah rabbi had confessed that he had dreamed about the messiah having the name [יהושוע] Yehoshua. So here goes …

  1. First, how many Jews have the name יהושוע (Yehoshua) and who were in Israel at the time of the rabbi's observation? How many Yehoshuas were there at that time?

    Christians who criticize Jewish Qabalah as satanic and the Talmud as evil, but yet I am trying to understand why the same people would often extract Qabalah and Talmud sources to say how Jewish traditions support their concept of salvation. Two-headed snakes.
  2. The Hebrew name of Jesus had always been [ישוע] (Y'shua). And all of a sudden now, his name was Yehoshua?
  3. The root word is [ישע] = [help, rescue, salvage]

    The pual (with collective-intensity passive) conjugate is [ישוע] Y'shua. Which means, participating in needing help. Needing to be rescued. Needing intervention.

    The term for this state of salvation is [ישועה] Y'shuah - the case of collective needing help, needing rescue.

  4. As accounted in the book of Numbers, Moses had renamed Joshua from [הושע] (Hosea) to  [יהושע] (Yehoshua).

    [הושע] (Hosea) is hufal - effective intensity perfected conjugate of the root word [ישע].
    Hufal is the passive counterpart of hifil conjugate [השיע](Hishia).

    The hifil form [השיע](Hishia) is active intensive but never used in the Bible.
    The hifil would refer to the subject as effective in providing collective help.

    The hufal [הושע] (Hosea) would refer to the subject effecting/coordinating the collective receiving of help.

    So Joshua was initially a coordinator/effector in receiving help, but Moses renamed him to [יהושע] - The LORD Coordinator/Provider to collective receiving of help.

  5. In either case, Salvation is people being in the need of help.

    The case of Jesus' name yshua - being in the collective of needing of help.

    The case of Joshua's names - someone providing/effecting work and effort towards solving the collective state of needing help.

    That is why Pauline theology says of humans needing help but cannot do anything about it. All you could do is to have faith hoping that something would drop out of the sky.

    But the theology behind Joshua's names is - that we realising being in the state of needing help, someone effectively coordinating the receiving of help, and subsequently G'd providing for that collective need of help/rescue.

    Having faith is not enough to participate in salvation.

    There is no such thing as personal salvation, otherwise the personal nifal passive form would have been used for salvation.

    Regardless that he is not the messiah spoken in the Bible, even the name of Jesus connotates a collective in need of help, not an individual needing help.

  6. Jesus' name tells you how helpless you are collectively, but doesn't tell you what to do.

    Joshua's names OTOH, tells you that you have a collective part to play in salvation and that G'd will provide for that collective need.

    Therefore, the Hebrew semantics of the word reveals that, even though G'd does provide for the help needed, Salvation does not originate from G'd. It originates from those of us needing help. You do not receive salvation. You participate in salvation. You are part of the solution in effecting salvation.

  7. The difference is
    • are you participating in Yehoshua's coordinating the receiving of help 
    • or participating in Yshua's hapless helpless needing help?
