Zechariah Commentary

The name of Eashoa (Jesus) appears in the 3rd chapter of the Book of Zechariah. In all the other English language translations, the name used is "Joshua." First of all, there is no such name in the Hebrew language. The name "Joshua" is really Eashoa. It's not only spelled the same as the name of Jesus, it's in fact a reference to Eashoa (Jesus) the Messiah by the Prophet Zechariah.

So in the Book of Zechariah chapter 3, verse 1, the name is not "Joshua" or "Joshua Bar Nun", it is Eashoa! There is no mention of Bar Nun. Zechariah 3:1 is a prophecy regarding Eashoa Msheekhah (Jesus the Messiah) five hundred years before He came to the world.

Every chapter in the Book of Zechariah is about Eashoa (Jesus) the Messiah, so how could all the churches have deleted the name of Eashoa (Jesus) from their Old Testaments? Why was the name of Eashoa (Jesus) deleted and falsified as "Joshua" in all the Scriptures, from the time of the Greek Septuagint to the present?
