Salvation – Hebrew: Yeshua

ישוע

Yeshua in Hebrew means ‘salvation’

“ADONAI  is my light and salvation (yeshua); whom do I need to fear?” (Psalm 27:1, CJB).

Yesha, the Hebrew root of yeshuah, signifies that which God will do in man’s behalf or that which has been done by God for man.

Hebrew Word Pictures

yeshua – finished work consumes the binding understood

Several other Scriptures where yasa or ‘salvation’ or ‘saves’ appears in Scripture:

“”He [Adonai] saw that there was no one, was amazed that no one interceded. Therefore his own arm brought him salvation [yeshua], and his [yeshua] own righteousness sustained him” (Isaiah 59:16, CJB).

“But while he [Joseph] was thinking about this, an angel of Adonai appeared to him a dream and said, “Yosef, son of David, do not be afraid to take Miryam [Mary] home with you as your wife; for what has been conceived in her is from the Ruach HaKodesh [Holy Spirit].  She will give birth to a son, and you are to name him Yeshua [which means Adonai saves] because he will save (yasa) his people from their sins” (Matthew 1:20CJB).

“You people don’t know what you are worshipping; we worship what we do know, because salvation (yeshua) comes from the Jews” (John 4:22).

“Therefore God raised him [Yeshua] to the highest place and gave him the name above every name; that in honor of the name given Yeshua, every knee will bow – in heaven, on earth and under the earth – and every tongue will acknowledge that Yeshua the Messiah is ADONAI (YHVH) to the glory of God the Father” (Philippians 2:9-11, CJB).

“Therefore, there is no longer any condemnation awaiting those who are in union with the Messiah Yeshua (salvation). Why?  Because the Torah of the Spirit, which produces life in union with Messiah Yeshua (salvation), has set me free from the “Torah” of sin and death” (Romans 8:12, CJB).

“Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Messiah Yeshua (salvation), because through Messiah Yeshua (salvation) the law of the Spirit of life set me from the law of sin and death” (Romans 8:2, NIV).

“Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation (yeshua) and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death” (2 Corinthians 7:10).

Mandrakes

The Hebrew word translated as mandrake is דודים (dudim) meaning ‘love plant’.  It is a Mediterranean herb (Mandragora officinarum) that includes some of the most poisonous plants such as nightshade, jimsonweed, tobacco and, paradoxically, some of the most common vegetables such as potatoes, tomatoes, green pepper, and eggplants.

The plant consists of several large, wrinkled, dark green leaves that lie flat upon the ground forming a rosette. In the center of this rosette a cluster of attractive purple flowers appears in the winter. The root of the mandrake may be several feet long and weigh several pounds. It has bizarre often human-like shapes and for this reason is highly regarded by the superstitious.  The root of a mandrake was used especially to promote conception, as a cathartic, or as a narcotic and soporific.   The mandrake often grows as a weed in wheat fields.

11.  Joseph  (May he add) – Hebrew, Yosef or יוסף

Yod, Vav, Samech, Peh – “hand ties and supports mouth (like a beginning river)”

 

12. Benjamin (son of the right hand), Hebrew Benyamin or בנימין

Putting the word pictures of the children of Jacob all together:

The strength of the shepherd is secured to the House of Life.  It consumes the chaos that binds the eyes to life.   The shepherd is bound (by nails) the finished work.  Behold the finished work, the nails, the door, behold.  The door is life.  Life flows from the mouth (words), a sign of the shepherd’s finished work and raises up the pathway.  Strength consumes the head, but the hand allows the the finished work to be the weapon of destruction securing the shepherd to life.  The finished work supports the words.  The House of Life is finished; the chaos of life is finished.  Behold life, the finished work of the hand, the pathway.
