PostSubject: Names for Christ in different languages   Thu Apr 15, 2010 7:57 pm

Ok, I am wanting to learn about Jesus' names in other languages. Hebrew, Greek, Arabic, Yiddish or whatever language you can think of. I know that some of the titles given to Christ given in other languages are not as honourable as it should be. So can anybody supply names of Christ in other languages that are actually reverent to the One True God (1 Jn 5:20)? I'm thinking of tats too, btw :p

Spanish: Cristo [Like: Chris-to]

In real Spanish, is it spelt that way? So there's like no weird squiggly lines over any letters etc?

Nope, no "tildes" at all

By the way, we only have the "ü" and the "ú." Just two acentuation marks.

Greek (transliterated into English lettering) would be like thus:

Iesous or Ihsous - depending on how you transliterate the "Eta"
Christos or Xristos - depending on how you write the "Chi". The Greek letter looks more like an "X"

It's funny, in German Christ means Christian.

SO when you say.. I am a Christian , it sounds blasphemous.. form an English perspective.

"Ich bin ein Christ."

In extension to Exhumed, in spanish you can also say 'Jesucristo' (pronounced heh-soo-cristo) instead of just 'Cristo.' This simply means Jesus Christ... for some reason they say it together as one word, not sure why.

It's become quite popular to call Him that way, and it pisses me.
