It may be taken as historically certain that Peter and the disciples had experiences after the crucifixion in which He appeared to them as the risen Messiah [tooltip title=”~Gerd Lüdemann (restated by author)”] ⊕[/tooltip].

What does FaithDefense.org Believe?

[checklist icon=”fa-caret-right” iconcolor=””]
  • We believe there is one God, who is the Creator and Sustainer of the universe.
  • We believe Messiah gave His life to re-establish the marriage between the Lord and us, as mentioned in Deuteronomy 24’s certificate of divorce.
  • We believe God can be personally known and experienced if you honestly seek Him in your life.

Yeshua or Jesus

You may not know this, but while Messiah was on earth, He was never called by the name “Jesus”, in fact, this English translation was only developed about 500 years ago. Messiah never even spoke English, but was raised in a culture that spoke Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek. His Hebrew name was Yahoshua (Yah is salvation), His Aramaic name was Yeshua (salvation), and His Greek name was Iesous. I choose to refer to Him by His Hebrew or Aramaic name, because it has such powerful meaning and significance. This is significant because Joseph was told to name Him “Yeshua, for He will save His people from their sins.” ([tooltip title=”She will give birth to a son; and you shall call His name Yeshua, for He will save His people from their sins.”]Matthew 1:21[/tooltip]) His name is Salvation! Because the English word “Jesus”, unfortunately, does not have the same significance and meaning, I enjoy using His Hebrew or Aramaic name. For this reason I hope you will not be offended when I call my Messiah by his given name, because after all, there is power in His name, which is the name above every name!
