Salvation – Hebrew: Yeshua


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.

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).
