Everyone expected a Saviour, according to the prophets of the OT. Here came a man, He defied all odds. He said He is from God, and the Son of God. People believed Him, and others rejected Him. He said, believing and having faith in Him, would save them, and give them eternal life.So how did he become such a figure. Its not like other figures in history who conquered this or did that. If you think of it most characters in history are known for all the bad things they did.
Lookout mate these fellas intentions ain't good...Well, all names in the OT, were Hebrew. Then suddenly because in NT times, Greek became the international language of those areas, and then suddenly they (whoever they are) decided to make a NT in greek, and viola, the proper name, Yahshua, became Jesus.
