    I agree with Bruce. Yeshua is the Hebrew translation of Jesus. I don't know where the lady got the information that it is the name of a pagan god. It is also translated as Joshua or Yehoshua. There are Jews who believe in Jesus and refer to Him as Yeshua Ha Mashiach meaning Jesus the Messiah. May His name be exalted and blessed for evermore.
