Jesus is the Greek version of our Lord’s name. In Hebrew, it is pronounced Jeshua.
Jeshua’s message for salvation is two part; repent and believe. Both are the combination to unlock salvation. They are also two related words in Hebrew.
1. The word “to cry out” is שוע(shawa')
The word “to bind in a narrow or to distress” is צרר (sarar). It describes the condition of the lost bound in the narrow distress of guilt and sin.
2. The opposite is to “deliver from the narrow ישע (yasha). It means to be wide, to be loose or delivered, and to be saved.
Romans 10:13 “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
Jeshua is the only Savior awaiting our repentance cry of faith! He will save those who call!
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
