How do you spell Jesus in Hebrew?


Answer by  AnnWalkerKennedy (175)

The name Jesus is pronounced Yeshua in the Hebrew language, and is spelled from right to left using the Hebrew letters Yud-Shin-Vav-Ayin.


Answer by  Sim (26)

Jesus in Hebrew is Yeshua, spelled Yud-Shin-Vav-Ayin, and it is written right-to-left. The first character you see is a Yod (Y). Then Shin (sh), Vav (V, W, or U). And then Ayin (a break in the voice) The Hebrew is all consonants, so that is why this last letter is a bit confusing.
