2. All the Gospels are Anonymous Until 180-185CE

Book CoverThe four Gospels… are all anonymous, written in the third person aboutJesus and his companions. None of them contains a first-person narrative (“One day, when Jesus and I went into Capernaum…”), or claims to be written by an eyewitness or companion of an eyewitness. Why then do we call them MatthewMarkLuke and John? Because sometime in the second century, when proto-orthodox Christians recognized the need for apostolicauthorities, they attributed these books to apostles (Matthew and John) and close companions of apostles (Mark, the secretary of Peter; and Luke, the travelling companion of Paul). Most scholars today have abandoned these identifications, and recognize that the books were written by otherwise unknown but relatively well-educated Greek-speaking (and writing) Christians during the second half of the first century.

Lost Christianities” by Bart Ehrman (2003)7

Justin Martyr, writing around 150-60 CE, quotes verses from the Gospels, but does not indicate what the Gospels were named. For Justin, these books are simply known, collectively, as the ‘Memoires of the Apostles.’ It was about a century after the Gospels had been originally put in circulation that they were definitively named Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. This comes, for the first time, in the writings of the church father and heresiologist Irenaeus, around 180-85 CE.

Forged” by Bart Ehrman (2011)3

Ehrman kindly points out that the gospels were not forgeries – they were anonymous, and it was a case of false attribution8 by Christians later on that was the cause of the misdirection which lasted many hundreds of years.

The Real Name of Jesus = EASHOA = ISHO

Many Christians asking Muslims. “Why you call him ‘ISA. Jesus is the correct name.”

I will tell you the naming of Jesus in Islam is closest to the naming of Jesus’ first language.

Jesus first language is ARAMAIC. The name “JESUS” is unknown in time of Jesus and his disciples because they called him “EASHOA” or “ISHO”

Isho or Eesho, the Aramaic/Syriac name of Jesus

Arabic عيسى ‘Isa

Al-Qur’an (in Islam) call him:

الْمَسِيحَ عِيسَى

“Al-Masih ‘Isa” or “‘Isa Al-Masih”

In Aramaic:

Eashoa’ M’sheekha

ISHO MASIKH

The Name of Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ in the Ancient Aramaic language is:

Eashoa’ M’sheekha

[name of Jesus in Aramaic]

In the Ancient Aramaic His name is written as shown above. Click on the name to hear the audio.

Eashoa’ means, “the Life-Giver.” Msheekha means, “the Anointed One.” Eashoa’ Msheekha: The Anointed Life-Giver.

Many visitors to this website e-mail me about the use of the name Jesus Christ. They say why do you use the English designations when the true name of Jesus is “Eashoa” and Christ is “The Anointed One.” Some of the people e-mailing me prefer the spelling “Yeshua.” And there are some other variations, but none of these are accurate transliterations. I prefer my own transliteration: Eashoa’.

I take this occasion to explain the usages, now that even God is in danger of being removed from the Pledge of Allegiance. First of all, the name of Jesus is not different from His name in the original language. In the Ancient Aramaic, the name is spelled “yeh-sheen-waw-ein.” In English the “yeh” becomes “J,” the “sheen” becomes “s,” the “waw” becomes a “u,” and the “ein,” becomes an “s.” Now, this might not sound like the same name, but since three of the four letters in the name don’t have English language equivalents, the English pronunciation had to be modified. Eashoa’ and Jesus are the very same name, albeit the transliterations are of two very different languages, with four thousand years of divergent evolution.

The name of Christ comes from the Greek word for “anointed.” The Greek word “Khristos” comes from the word for “oil.” The English language is based on the Latin, which in turn is based on the Greek. The word “Msheekhah” is the original word for “The Anointed.” Another good choice for “Christ” is the Messiah — again from “Msheekhah.” The same word in all the languages, designating Jesus as the Messiah prophesied by the Old Testament.

There are many misconceptions regarding the language of the Bible. In my opinion they’re all aimed at misleading people from the Truth, which is the Faith in Eashoa (Jesus) the Messiah.
