    His original name, in Hebrew, is Y'eshua (pronounced yesh-uu-ah). In English, that would translate as Joshua. But, since the New Testament was originally written in Greek, we use a translation of the His Greek name. (Just like Christ is a translation of the Greek "Kristos"). The "Mexican" name Jesus is actually Spanish, and derives from the Greek and Latin.

    It's not like the chicken and the egg. We know the Hebrew came first, then the Greek, then the Spanish.

    Jesus was a name given to him after he died, it's a hebrew term for enlightened. Je and sus are the root words. meaning He Enlightened.

    More to the point, how would your dad be named Joseph, your mom Mary and your brother James, then you get stuck with a weird name like that? His family was not poor, there are records of James and Joseph showing up in England, they were freight runners. There are also reports of Jesus showing up in Tibet (it's in their history) and he stayed there for quite a while, that's where sme of the missing 18 years were, learning philosphy and religion in far off countries with the money his dad made.

    you recognize your question is ridiculous. shall we are expecting of at the same time as Jesus changed into alive who changed into residing in Mexico or the Americas for that count number...interior sight community. no longer Mexicans that are a mixture of natives and Spaniards. Oh and Jesus in Spanish is suggested in yet in a unique way, J are like H's in Spanish.

    You ever think that the Spanish (REAL Spain dwellers) might have found the name to be holy and named some people after it, and then went to Mexico and started occupying with people named Jesus?

    "Keep in mind Mexico did not exist at the time of Jesus"

    Oh really? Where was the Western Hemisphere around the year 30? Floating around in space waiting for Columbus to arrive?

    Biblical Jews were only an invention of the Bible Hoax and Jesus is not Mexican because it is pronounced Hey ZEus but because it combines Jah(Je) and Zeus to honour and worship Zeus the Sun god.

    he had a hebrew name, Joshua, which in spanish is Jesus. pronounced different in many languages.

    He is a king but came to this earth with a common name, he had a humble birth and was born in a manger, had common looks so he wouldn't attract people with his looks but by his works and word. His birth was announced to lowly shephards in a field. He is a truly humble King.

    Because Mexicans are the chosen people.
