When a word is transferred from one language to another, it is either translated or transliterated. When it is translated the meaning of the word is transferred. When it is transliterated it is the sound of the word that is transferred.
The transliteration of the Father’s personal name, as given in scripture, is actually YHWH, pronounced Yahuwah. The translation of this name is I Am That I Am.
It implies that the One who bears the name is self-existent from eternity past to eternity future. When Moses asked how he should answer when the Israelites asked who had sent him to them, the reply was: “I AM THAT I AM . . . Thus shall you say unto the children of Israel, I AM has sent me unto you.” (Exodus 3:14)
Just before He provides us with the ten commandments in Exodus 20 He says in verse 2 “I AM YHWH your Elohim, who has brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery.
While “Jesus” is commonly used to refer to the Son, it is actually from the Greek “Iesus,” which refers to the pagan god, Zeus.
The name of Yahuwah’s Son is very much like His own: Yahushua. As with the Father’s own personal, divine name, the importance of the Son’s name is found in its definition.
In John 5:43 we read ” I AM come in My Father’s name and with His power, and you do not receive Me [because your minds are closed]; but if another comes in his own name and with no authority or power except his own, you will receive him and give your approval to an imposter.” – very telling when we call Him Jesus……
In fact in Acts 4, the very chapter you are quoting, it says, “17 But to keep it from spreading further among the people and the nation, let us [sternly] warn them not to speak again to anyone in this name.” 18 So they sent for them, and commanded them not to speak [as His representatives] or teach at all in the name of Yahushua [using Him as their authority].” And hence His name was changed.
The beautiful meaning contained in the Saviour’s name is an all-encompassing revelation of the mighty salvation offered sinners. Yahushua means:
Yahuwah Save! (A cry for help to the only One who can help.)
Yahuwah Saves! (A joyous statement of fact.)
Yahuwah Saving (An present-tense immediate action.)
Yahuwah’s Salvation (An all-encompassing statement of who and what the Saviour is.)
When the angel Gabriel was sent to Mary to tell her she would bear Yahuwah’s Son, he told her what to name the Baby: “You will conceive in your womb, and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Yahushua.” (Luke 1:31) Joseph was told the same thing by the angel: “You shall call His name Yahushua for He shall save His people from their sins.” (Matthew 1:21)
In Scripture, there are over 360 names or titles for the Father and the Son, from The Rose of Sharon, to The Provider.
Other names applied to the Father and the Son are: The Lily of the Valley, My Shepherd, My Healer, My Banner (in War), My Guide, My Light, My Bread, My Life.
Elohim, or El, means The Mighty One. In ancient times, parents would name their children under the inspiration of Yahuwah. This is seen in the many names which contain references to Yahuwah (Yah) and El.

Yahuwah (YHWH) – I AM that I AM
YHWH said to Moses, “I Am Who I Am”; and He said, “You shall say this to the Israelites, ‘I Am has sent me to you.’”
Exodus 20:2 – Just before the ten commandments
2 “I AM the YHWH your Elohim, who has brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery.
And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of Yahuwah shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as Yahuwah hath said, and in the remnant whom the Yahuwah shall call.
Yahushua (Yah Saves)
Acts 4:12 – And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among people by which we must be saved.
43 I AM come in My Father’s name and with His power, and you do not receive Me [because your minds are closed]; but if another comes in his own name and with no authority or power except his own, you will receive him and give your approval to an imposter.
Who has ascended into heaven and descended?
Who has gathered the wind in His fists?
Who has bound the waters in His garment?
Who has established all the ends of the earth?
What is His name, and what is His Son’s name?
Certainly you know!
11 I am no longer in the world; yet they are still in the world, and I am coming to You. Holy Father, keep them in Your name,the name which You have given Me, so that they may be one just as We are.
“Blessed (celebrated, praised) is the King who comes in the name of the YHWH! Peace in heaven and glory in the highest [heaven]!”
39 Some of the Pharisees from the crowd said to Him, “Teacher, rebuke Your disciples.”40 Yahushua replied, “I tell you, if these [people] keep silent, the stones will cry out [in praise]!”
Reading from right to left:
Ya’akov, Bar, Yos’ef. Akkui di Yahushua.
James, son of Joseph, brother of Yahushua.
17 But to keep it from spreading further among the people and the nation, let us [sternly] warn them not to speak again to anyone in this name.” 18 So they sent for them, and commanded them not to speak [as His representatives] or teach at all in the name of Yahushua [using Him as their authority].
Jeremiah (Yirmeyahu) 16:19,21
[Then said Jeremiah] “O YHWH, my Strength and my Stronghold,
And my Refuge in the day of distress and need,
The nations will come to You
From the ends of the earth and say,
‘Our fathers have inherited nothing but lies and illusion,
[Worthless] things in which there is no benefit!’
20 “Can a man make gods for himself?
Such [things] are not gods!
21 “Therefore, behold, I will make them know—
This time I will make them know
My power and My might;
And they will know and recognize [without any doubt] that My Name is YHWH.”
“Then I will give to the peoples [clear and pure speech from] purified lips [which reflect their purified hearts],
That all of them may call on the name of YHWH,
To serve Him shoulder to shoulder (united).
“And I will bring the third part through the fire,
Refine them as silver is refined,
And test them as gold is tested.
They will call on My name,
And I will listen and answer them;
I will say, ‘They are My people,’
And they will say, ‘YHWH is my Elohim.’”
Then I looked, and this is what I saw: the Lamb stood [firmly established] on Mount Zion, and with Him a hundred and forty-four thousand who had His name and His Father’s name inscribed on their foreheads [signifying YHWH’s own possession].
14 And when we all had fallen to the ground, I heard a voice in the Hebrew dialect (Jewish Aramaic) saying to me,‘Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me? It is hard for you to kick [repeatedly] against the iron goad [offering pointless resistance].’15 And I said, ‘Who are thou Lord?’ And the YHWH said, ‘I AM Yahushua whom you are persecuting.’
13 Now concerning everything which I have said to you, be on your guard; do not mention the name of other gods [either in a blessing or in a curse]; do not let such speech be heard [coming] from your mouth.
6 For I am YHWH. I do not change and you sons of Yaaqob, shall not come to an end.

Name: Y’shua, Yahushua, Yahshua!
