The name of Jesus appears appears 72 time(s) in 59 verse(s) in Quran in Mohsin Khan translation in the Quran.(  Read more in  www.vox.com.

In the Bible it is of course more. You find the word 7990 times. https://www.catholic.org/search/bible/?q=jesus

 Iēsous (Greek: Ἰησοῦς), the Greek form of the Hebrew name Yeshua (Hebrew: ישוע‎). As its roots lie in the name Yeshua, it is etymologically related to another biblical name, Joshua.

The name Yeshua appears written as ê·śāw (of Esau) many times in Genesis and in  Obadiah 1:21 

where it is said that 

“And saviours shall come up on mount Zion to judge the mount of Esau; and the kingdom shall be the LORD’S.”


“In Hebrew, the word for ‘saviors’ is ‘yasha‘, which is closely related to ‘Yeshua‘, the name of the Messiah, which literally means ‘salvation‘ in Hebrew.

יָשַׁע yâshaʻ, yaw-shah’; a primitive root; properly, to be open, wide or free, i.e. (by implication) to be safe; causatively, to free or succor:—× at all, avenging, defend, deliver(-er), help, preserve, rescue, be safe, bring (having) salvation, save(-iour), get victory.

Could it be, that the ‘yasha’ mentioned in Obadiah 1:21 are none other than the Saints, clothed in white linen, who return to Jerusalem with Yeshua/Jesus during the Second Coming?”

Jesus Christ is  called यीशु मसीह (Yīśu masīha) in Hindi. very similar to the Arabic Isa.


What does the name mean?

“The name Jesus means ‘Savior’. It is the same name as Joshua in the Old Testament. It is given to our Lord because “He saves His people from their sins.The Song of Solomon describes the experience of many, when it says, “Your name is oil poured forth” (Song of Solomon 1:3)” (Source: https://www.christianity.com/jesus/is-jesus-god/names-of-jesus/what-does-the-name-jesus-mean.html )
