Hello everyone.  Greetings !  Yes my name is Mike.  Thank you all for being here.  It's been a long time.  

What is the phonetic pronunciation of " Jesus Christ " in the Aramaic New Testament , the Peshitta ?  Transliterated - is it not " Yeshua Meshiac " or " Yeshua Messiah " ?  Or is it another way ?  Second , is it the same pronunciation as the original Hebrew or is it slightly different ?  

Also , does the Aramaic New Testament ever transliterate the Hebrew pronunciation within the Aramaic New Testament ?  

Kindly ; 

Thanks so much.

Yeshu, Yehoshua, or Yeshua - 2012 (page 2)
Yeshua vs Eshua - 2004 (historic pronunciation)
