Yeshua, “like the sun”

Hebrew names have meanings. For instance, Yeshua’s name means “Salvation of Yah”, so when the angel told Mary to name her child Yeshua, because He would save His people from their sins, it made perfect sense, because that’s what “Yeshua” means!

“And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Yeshua ישוע, for He will save His people from their sins.”
Mat 1:21

In Judges 16, we have some of the account of Samson’s life. Samson’s name, שמשון, means “like the sun” (H8121).

In Judges 16:23, we have a stand-alone Alef Tav right next to Samson’s name. (You can verify this with any bible search engine in the original Hebrew.) The Alef Tav represents Yeshua. (See the introduction here if your new to this concept.)

Judges 16:23 reads (with the Aleph Tav reinserted):

Yeshua being represented next to Samson’s name probably has many hidden meanings, like Yeshua also being a deliverer of His people from their enemies, as Samson was, but I will show you how it can be a reference to Yeshua being “like the sun”, which is what Samson’s name means.

We have two witnesses of Yeshua being “like the sun”. Our first witness is in Matthew’s epistle. The transfiguration.

Yeshua “like the sun”

Our next witness is from John in Revelation.

Yeshua “like the sun”

Two witnesses! Prophecy of Judges 16:23 fulfilled! Granted, we too will see Yeshua like the sun, but that will be fulfilled for us later.

I pray that these witnesses of Yeshua in the Tanakh are blessings to you!

It's not about me, it's about my Father, His holy, unchanging Word, Yeshua made flesh! No ear tickling here. (And maybe a couple of posted recipes that I've been unable to find online elsewhere. 😉)
