Howdy Ian,

Recently you stated real cool somewhere that Romans 10:9 "Jesus is Lord"   .. Can actually translate as "Yeshua is Yahweh." but that's fine by me.. However the text states "κυριον Ἱησουν " which is accusative - on both nouns so how do you draw this conclusion from the Hebrew ??

blessings

Eric

Eric,

 

If I may put my two pence worth in, A group I once was involved in, ‘Assemblies of Yahweh in the Messiah’, (a ‘proper’ name group) state that the name of Yahshua (Jesus) is a combination of the Hebrew names YWWH (God, meaning eternally existent one, ‘I AM’) and Yoshua (Joshua, meaning 'God the Savior'. See Matthew 1:20-21.)

 

Whether there is any connection to what you are seeking or not.smiley18

Hello, Eric.

Recently you stated real cool somewhere that Romans 10:9 "Jesus is Lord"  ... Can actually translate as "Yeshua is Yahweh." Not quite. What I said was that to confess, 'Jesus is Lord' in the 1st century Judeo-Christian context, was to ascribe to Jesus the majesty and dignity ordinarily accorded to God, the Father. In a strictly Roman context, the same confession was explicitly counter cultural given that 'Caesar was Lord', and he certainly brooked no competitors to his dignity or majesty! ;)

Please keep in mind that in the Septuagint (the Bible of the early Church) יהוה‎ most frequently was translated κύριος (or κύριον in the accusative case). However the text states "κυριον Ἱησουν " which is accusative - on both nouns so how do you draw this conclusion from the Hebrew ?? That both 'Lord' and 'Jesus' appear in the accusative case isn't surprising given that the combination obviously functions as the direct object of the verbal action in the clause. Consequently it couldn't be written any other way in Romans 10:9.

Likely as not you already knew that 'Jesus is Lord' is written ישו הוא האדון in Hebrew. However, you probably didn't know that 'Jesus is Lord' is written 'Yeshu ha MarYah' in Aramaic (I've used English transliteration given that noone reading this is likely to have a Syriac font loaded on their computers). 'MarYah' is a compound word derived from 'Mar' (i.e. 'Lord') and 'Yah(weh)', the personal name of God. It's not surprising, then, that the Aramaic New Testament can record: “For today in the city of David there has been born for you a Saviour, who is Lord-Yah the Messiah” (Luke 2:11).

Appreciating all of this provides considerable depth and clarity to Paul's teaching about who Jesus is :) 

Blessings,

Ian

Hi, Ralph.

Geez but you've kept company with some real 'nutters' over the years!

Hi Ian,

Ha ha yes, but truth be known I only went along with them for a little while to humour friends of my wife whilst they were visiting here from the Philippines. I was fresh out of GRC at the time. You can imagine the crap that went on from both sides. I was well armed with 20 odd years of Revivalist fantasy and them with their JW+ style antics.  The camping at Wye River was good though when they were celebrating the 'Feast of Tabernacles'. We had to build our own "booths" to live in (I'm sure the parks authority wouldn't have been too impressed had they known we cut down lots of young saplings. smiley11) and singing and relaxing and lots to eat.

Ralph.

Fww, is there any merit to that at all?
