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.

In Te Confido Iesu
The word Jesus is the Latin form of the Greek Iesous, which in turn is the transliteration of the Hebrew Jeshua, or Joshua, or again Jehoshua, meaning "Jehovah is salvation."
Most likely, the Latin spelling of Jesus would be "IESUS". The New Testament (first written account of the name "Jesus") was recorded in Greek - which writes his name as… "IESOUS" (of course, this is the phonetic spelling of the original Greek letters which I will not post here). Therefore, based upon my limited knowledge of Greek to Latin translation, I would say that this would be spelled Iesus in Latin. The letter "J" was probably put in place of the "I" when it was translated into German and produced by Martin Luther in 1522 AD (which was the precursor to the English translations of today's Bible).
Iesus or Jesus. Both are correct
Historically speaking, Jesus is a Hebrew of the tribe of Judah. He was raised in the city of Nazareth in Galilee. Being such, he spoke Hebrew with aGalilean accent. It was not…ed that hearing Jesus speak, on occasion, the listener would hear him speak in listener's native tongue. To assume that Jesus was a native Latin speaker violates his Jewish roots and upbringing. It is believed by many scholars that Hebrew is the original language. History records that Alexander the Great wrote back to his teacher that he had discovered an ancient tomb with ancient Hebrew writing on it while he was in India. Alexander concluded in his letter that Hebrew must have been the original language. This is consistent with Judeo-Christian beliefs concerning the accounts of the tower of Babel. At Babel, Nimrod had organized a pagan sun god worship and had gathered most peoples of the earth at that time to him. They constructed a great tower in an attempt to prevent YHVH from destroying all men with a flood again. This rebellion provoked YHVH into give them different languages so as to prevent them from getting together in rebellion with ease of communication. The few men in the family of Noah, who was still alive at this event due to his longevity, retained the original language. There is much historical evidence to support this view if one diligently searches. This is not the popular belief.
"Iesus Christus" or "Iesus Nazarae", depending on the period.
Jesu Christe (prounounced YAY-su KREEST-ay)
No Jesus spoke aramaic.
"YAY-soos KREE-stoos", spelled "Iesus Christus"
In Jesus Christ
Jesus Sarcalogos exsisto vobis.
To clarify: I am looking for the one based on the verb Diligere, to esteem, NOT Amāre, to lust after, to like, to love, to befriend.
In Spanish it would be hezoos so maybe similar in latin ====== Not quite. In Latin the name is Iesus, pronounced ee-eh-soos.
Jesus is the English form of the Greek word, which in its turn is from the Hebrew. The Hebrew form of Jesus is Joshua. Joshua is from the Hebrew word that means "saviour" or… "salvation"
