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.

What does the writing on top of the cross stand for?

It was common for the Roman government when performing an execution to put on the cross the person's name and their crime. For Jesus' crime, under His name (Jesus of Nazareth), they reportedly put "King of the Jews". Many crucifixes show a sign saying "INRI" above Jesus' head. That's the acronym for the Latin phrase that means "Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews" (the Latin word for king is rex).

How do you write Jesus in latin?

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).
