    the hebrew way of saying it is with y sound which is more like the h sound the hispanics use, look at what some of the stuff the religous kooks posted down farther, no big deal, not a concern of mine just making converstation, so how have you been? Haven't seen you for awhile? haven't been on lately since i buried my Dad

    Of course Jesus was not white. His name was not Mexican. He was a black man form the present middle east.

    The King of Spain'' his sons wanted kingdoms. one son went to Mexico. one son went to Rome. Spains fleet of ships made both countrys. With foods and supplys,The Mexicans are grandchildren of a union of the King of Spain,and Island Indians. thus called Mexican. The speech is Hebrew'' and the Kings of Spain come from Israel.

    Actually, it's a mistake of pronunciation. You see, long ago, in Catholic Spain, there arose a pantheistic mythological cult, based on the Greek gods of Mt Olympus. Many families had popular names for their children, like Apollo, Diana, and so on. Kinda like the Basques, I suppose...

    One such name was the most powerful god, Zeus. Now eventually, the cult was wiped out, something similar to the explusion of the Muslim Moors by Ferdinand and Isabella. Don't even get me started on the Inquistion!

    Some of the names stuck, though, and when someone wanted to get the attention of someone named Zeus, they just called out, "Hey, Zeus!"

    Eventually, as Spanish culture later spread to the New World, such as New Spain (later Mexico), the name had caught on, but between the Catholicization of the remnants of the cult, and the vagaries of Spanish pronunciation ('Y' sound for 'J', and so on), the spelling was made to match the pronunciation...

    So now, Jesus is a name pronounced as "Hey Zeus"!

    Do you believe that???

    Hmmm. You could probably post that on a Red State blog, and next thing you know, it'll be reported on Fox News.

    Iesou is the Greek form of Jeshua....or Joshua...
    It was transliterated into the Anglicized Jesus. It means 'Deliverer'.....
    Christos is the Greek for the Hebrew..."Messiah'....meaning 'Anointed One'

    'The Anointed Deliverer'......Jesus Christ

    ... are you serious? who came first? Jesus or the mexicans? lets think about this logically. BC-AD was Jesus time.... a couple THOUSAND YEARS LATER we have the mexicans. seems like the mexicans stole Jesus name. and Jesus has many names.
    edit: judging by the comments ill take this as a joke. :P
