The name Yeshua (in the greek Iesus, or in English Jesus) means “Yah is my salvation”.
IN Isaiah 2:2 we read:
2 And it shall come to pass (H319 אַחֲרִית ‘achariyth. The future) in the last days, that the mountain of the Lord’s (H3068 YHVH) house (H1004 family) shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations (H1471 goyim, all of humanity) shall flow unto it.
H319 אַחֲרִית ‘achariyth is constructed of the letters tov, yod, resh, hey, and aleph. In the paleo Hebrew they would have been pictures of a cross, an man with uplifted arms, a head meaning first, an open door, and an oxen meaning to lead.
Reading left to right in the Hebrew manner this would have told the reader “The leader will be revealed with his first work on the cross”. This is our future!
