jesus in hebrewSome people believe that Jesus is the Messiah, well, I cant say I do, but that’s beside the point. I still would like to teach you how to say Jesus in Hebrew:

The name Jesus in Hebrew is “Yeshua”.

Here is how you write it in Hebrew:

ישוע

Alternatively, the name is also written like:

ישו

Here is how you write Jesus in Hebrew with Niqqud (Hebrew Vowels):

יֵשׁוּעַ

And here is the other alternative:

יֵשׁוּ

In case you don’t know the Hebrew alphabet, here is a list of the letters used in writing Jesus in Hebrew:

י

Yod – יוֹד

Yod is just like a “y” in English. It is sometimes pronounced like “y” in “many” or in “why

 

ש

Shin – שִׁין

Shin could either be pronounced like English “s” (as in some) or “sh” (as in sheep)

It is pronounced like “s” when it has a dagesh on its left side, like this;

שׂ

It is pronounced like “sh” when it has a dagesh on its right side, like this:

שׁ

 

ו

Vav – וו

Just like English “o” in “born” or “u” in “put”.

Vav is pronounced “o” if it has a dagesh on the top of it, like this:

וֹ

Vav is pronounced “u” if it has a dagesh inside it, like this:

וּ

 

ע

Ayin – עַיִן

It has a special sound that doesn’t exist in English or any other Western language.

However, a huge percentage of Hebrew native speakers in Israel pronounce it just like the letter “aleph”. Like A, E, O, I or U, depending on where it is in a word and what niqqud comes with it.
