Jesus is Yeshua to come Isaiah 62:11 – where is the name of Jesus in the Old Testament?

There is a view by some people that the name of Jesus is not found anywhere in the Old Testament (Tanakh), and according to them this proves that Jesus is not the true Messiah or Savior of the Jews. (Israel)  The name Jesus in Hebrew is “yeshua”, and that Hebrew word can be found in many places in the Old Testament. (Tanakh)      An example of this can be found in Isaiah 62:11 were the word for salvation is the Hebrew word “yeshua”.

In Isaiah 62:11 we read:

Behold, the Lord announced to the end of the earth, “Say to the daughter of Zion, ‘Behold your salvation has come.’ ” Behold His reward is with Him, and His wage is before Him.” (chabad.org version)

“Behold, the LORD hath proclaimed unto the end of the earth: say ye to the daughter of Zion: ‘Behold, thy salvation cometh; behold, His reward is with Him, and His recompense before Him(Jewish Publication Society 1917)

“Behold, the LORD has proclaimed to the end of the earth, Say to the daughter of Zion, “Lo, your salvation comes; Behold His reward is with Him, and His recompense before Him.”” (New American Standard Bible)

In Isaiah 62:11 we see that the “salvation” to come is a person not a thing, and when examined the Hebrew word is “yeshua” which is the Hebrew word for Jesus.  Those who claim that the name Jesus is not to be found anywhere in the Old Testament are in error or willfully rejecting the truth.  Check out this article for more information Yeshua in the Tanakh
