Even in our modern world,
the names of "foreign" people are transliterated (trans-lettered)
for us in all the forms of media (print, radio, television, etc.,.).
The former Prime Minister of Israel was "Benjamin NatanYahu".
The surname, NatanYahu, can be translated, but it is not translated; it
retains the sound of the original Hebrew even though it is brought over into
English lettering. If we "translate" the meaning of
NatanYahu, in English it would mean "provided by Yah".
The first name, Benjamin, is also an example of "tranliteration"
(trans-lettering). The original word which it is derived from in
Hebrew should be spelled "BEN-YAMIN", but the letter "J"
is often used as our "Y" in many European countries today.
"Yugoslavia" is spelled "Jugoslavia" to those who live in
Jugoslavia, but in most cases we (in the US) mis-read the letter "J"
and cause it to sound differently. "Joshua" is a shortened
form of Yahushua, and is formed by adding "YAH" to "HUSHUA"
(often spelled Hosea, the Greek corruption of the word). The form
"YAHUSHA" is seen 216 times in the TaNaK.
through which transliterated names and other words are brought cause
varying degrees of mutilation or corruption. The Greek is perhaps the
most cruel alphabet to impose on words from outside, since it lacks the sounds
necessary to "replay" the words properly. Greek has grammar rules
concerning word-endings, further mutilating original words, particularly names!
Shaul was changed to Paul, but the Greek requires an ending "S" to
make the word "masculine"; so they changed it to "Paulos".
Greek has no "SH" sound in its alphabet, so, many words are
effected. Shabbath is not a Greek word, nor is there any equivilent word
to "translate" the meaning clearly; so, the Greek language
spells the word "Sabbath", losing the "SH" sound.
Yosef becomes "JOSES" in the Greek; and this is their attempt
to make the same sounds! There should be no emotionalism over the
fact that the Mashiach's Name, Yahushua, should still be "Yahushua",
and not "Jesus". But, the liar and deceiver who
presently rules this dark world can use many things against us, including our
babbling tongues. Primarily, it was the "Society", or
the "Order" called the Jesuits
who promoted the spelling "Jesus". After all, their
Order is the "Society of Jesus" (Societas Iesu).
The arsenal of
sounds which we call an "alpha-bet" (originally from the first 2
Hebrew letters, alef-beth) are simply the building blocks of intelligible
noises which we manipulate to form words, which are ultimately units of
meaning, concepts, or ideas. They express feelings, desires,
thoughts, actions, and so on. Scholars often refer to writing
as the most important human invention in all of history.
The ultimate objective of writing is speech, as written music is
to be brought forth through the tonal generation of sound.
So, writing is simply a way of storing or recording information in notation,
so objectively there is little difference between written letters and
written musical notes. A written word is to be "played"
by our mouth and tongue, to vibrate the air. If we distort
the original sound by recording the characters (letters, notes) improperly,
then the replaying of the sound will be different than the
"composer" intended it to be. The Composer of our speech was
YHWH, and He brought confusion to the Sumerians at the tower of Babel.
Ever since then, we have been trying to understand what the ancient language
(Hebrew) sounded like, and meant.
No small wonder that we are still somewhat
