There never was a person named Jesus Christ!
His first name wasn’t Jesus and his last name wasn’t Christ.
The original baptism was not in the Name of Jesus, it was in
the Name of Yeshua.
When Peter spoke Acts 2:38 he did not use the Name of Jesus Christ but rather he commanded:…”Repent and baptized every one of you in the Name of “Yeshua” the Messiah or Mashiach (Hebrew)
real name in earlier periods was Yehoshua or in the Second Temple period Yeshua (translated from Hebrew OT into English as Joshua). When the English rendered the Latin IESVS from the Greeks who translated the Semitic name
Yeshua they came up with Jesus (Yehoshua became Yeshua became Iesous became Jesus), and that name stuck. But his real name in his own language (probably Aramaic) was Yeshua, which was a very good name in the
Hebrew tradition. It meant – “Yahweh (God) is savior (helper)”.
As far as his last name goes, in those days, people didn’t have last names. He would have been called Yeshua bar Yahosef bar Yaqub, Joshua, son of Joseph,
son of Jacob. Yet many people think his last name was Christ! Not true. He was never called Jesus Christ! Jesus/Joshua was the Messiah, which in Hebrew (moschiach) means “the anointed one” . The Greek word for the oil used to anoint
someone is “khrisma”, and the person so anointed is “Khristos” in Greek, “Christus” in Latin, and “Christ” in English.
From About.com Christian site:
Yeshua is the Aramaic name for the Lord. It means "Yahweh [the Lord] is Salvation." The English spelling of Yeshua is “Joshua.” However, when translated from Aramaic into the Greek language, the name Yeshua becomes Iēsous. The
English spelling for Iēsous is “Jesus.”
Basically, what this means is Joshua and Jesus are the same name. One is translated from Hebrew/Aramaic (Yehoshua or Yeshua) into English (Joshua), the other from Greek (Iesous) into
English (Jesus). It is also interesting to note, the names "Joshua" and "Isaiah" are essentially the same names as Yeshua in Hebrew. They mean "Savior" and "the salvation of the Lord."
Wikipedia info on the Name of Yeshua:
Yeshua (ישוע, with vowel pointing יֵשׁוּעַ - yēšūă‘ in Hebrew) was a common alternative form of the name יְהוֹשֻׁעַ ("Yehoshuah" - Joshua) in later books of the Hebrew Bible and among Jews of the Second Temple period. The name corresponds
to the Greek spelling Iesous, from which comes the English spelling Jesus.
The Hebrew spelling Yeshua (ישוע) appears in some later books of the Hebrew Bible . Once for Joshua the son of Nun, and 28 times for Joshua the High Priest and
(KJV "Jeshua") and other priests called Jeshua - although these same priests are also given the spelling Joshua in 11 further instances in the books of Haggai and Zechariah. It differs from the usual Hebrew Bible spelling of Joshua (יְהוֹשֻׁעַ y'hoshuaʿ),
found 218 times in the Hebrew Bible, in the absence of the consonant he ה and placement of the semivowel vav ו after, not before, the consonant shin ש. It also differs from the Hebrew spelling Yeshu (ישו) which is found in Ben Yehuda's dictionary and used
in most secular contexts in modern Hebrew to refer to Jesus of Nazareth, though the Hebrew spelling Yeshua (ישוע) is generally used in translations of the New Testament into Hebrew and used by Hebrew speaking Christians in Israel. The name Yeshua is also
used in Israeli Hebrew historical texts to refer to other Joshuas recorded in Greek texts such as Jesus ben Ananias and Jesus ben Sira.
