The name Jesus in Latin is IESVS. It corresponds in pronunciation to the Greek Iesous. Both are a way to say the Hebrew name Yehshus, which has been translated in Aramaic as Yeshua and Jehoshua, said to mean "Ehyeh (Ehjeh) is salvation." Ehyeh is the name of God at the burning bush in Exodus 3:14. The meaning of Ehyeh is said to be I AM. Jesus claimed to be the I AM, therefore he claimed to be EHYEH, which in turn means God. Jesus name then in all three languages means I AM GOD. The three names of Jesus upon the Cross were: IESVS-IESOUS-YEHSHUS. Jesus is a Hebrew name in Latin letters.
