And she shall bring forth a son,
and thou shalt call his name JESUS:
for he shall save his people
from their sins

About the Greek Name “Jesus”
The Greek NAME JESUS is a translation, or rather transliteration from the Hebrew NAME Joshua, or Yehoshua, or [Yeshua for short].
Here’s a little background:
Yehoshua in the Septuagint (the Greek Translation of the OT circa 200 BC)Two things indicate that Yehoshua is the proper Hebrew name for Jesus:
(1) In the Greek Translation of the OT known as the Septuagint (LXX), the name Joshua is rendered *Iasous* = Jesus.
(2) In the NT, Joshua is mentioned twice (Acts 7:45; Heb 4:8), and in both places the Greek NT spells the name *Iasous* = Jesus. [pronouced Yeh-shu)

Thus the Greek *Iasous* is the equivalent of Hebrew *Yehoshua*

Yehoshua in the Hebrew Bible

As far as the Hebrew Bible is concerned, it is important to note that in the early books, the name Joshua is spelled as (     yod-hey-waw-shin-ayin) or on rare occasions as (    yod-hey-waw-shin-waw-ayin). However, in the books of Ezra and Nehemiah, the high priest is named Jeshua the son of Jozadak (    yod-shin-waw-ayin); whereas in the contemporary books of Haggai and Zechariah, the same high priest is named Joshua the son of Jehozadak (    yod-hey-waw-shin-ayin beth-nun).

Thus, it can be concluded that in post-exilic times of the Biblical era, the names Yeshua and Yehoshua were regarded as equivalent. from https://www.essene.com/Yeshua/yehoshua.htm

Note: “post-exilic times” refer to Circa 500 BC, or after the Exile of Israel in Babylon as slaves/servants to the King of Babylon for 70 years, as Jeremiah prophesied.

What is Jesus’ original Hebrew Name? Jehoshua.
What does it mean?  Salvation (Joshua or Jehoshua)  = “Jehovah is Salvation
