Salvation – Hebrew: Yeshua

The Hebrew word for ‘salvation’ is yeshua. ‘Salvation’ is found 158 times in the New American Standard Bible, both testaments.

ישוע

Yeshua in Hebrew means ‘salvation.’ His name and his purpose are one in the same.

“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 already been done by God for man.

Yod is a picture of a Closed Hand and means ‘finished work’

Shin is a picture of a Tooth and means ‘consume’

Vav is a picture of a Nail and means ‘binding’

yeshua – understand the finished work of the binding ‘of Isaac’

“For Your salvation [Yeshua] I wait, O Lord” (Genesis 49:18).

“”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) Complete Jewish Bible

“His glory is great through Your salvation [Yeshua], Splendor and majesty You place upon him” (Psalm 21:5).

“I have not hidden Your righteousness within my heart; I have spoken of Your faithfulness and Your salvation [Yeshua]; I have not concealed Your lovingkindness and Your truth from the great congregation” (Psalm 40:10).

“Oh, that the salvation [Yeshua] of Israel would come out of Zion! When God restores His captive people, Let Jacob rejoice, let Israel be glad” (Psalm 53:6).

The Greek word for ‘salvation’ is solteria, but that is not the name given to Joseph for the child conceived by the Holy Spirit. When Yeshua is placed into the gospels and letters, the uniqueness of Yeshua comes to light.

“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 1:20) Complete Jewish Bible

“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 (Yahweh] to the glory of God the Father” (Philippians 2:9-11).

“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).

Putting the Hebrew Word Pictures of the children of Israel 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.
