Etymology[edit]

Hellenized form of Semitic proper name roughly equivalent to Ἰησοῦ (Iēsoû) +‎ -ος (-os); Hellenic case suffixes added to an approximated Greek literal phonetic rendering of Aramaic יֵשׁוּע‎(Yēšū́ʿ, Jesus) and Biblical Hebrew יֵשׁוּעַ(Yēšū́a, Jesus” or “Joshua), a syncopated relative of Biblical Hebrew יְהוֹשֻׁעַ(Yĕhōšúa, Joshua); ultimately can be traced to Paleo-Hebrew primitive root Biblical Hebrew 𐤉𐤔𐤏(y-š-ʕ, to deliver, save).
