The whole Christian world is suffering from "J" sickness. Whatever they find something with Y or I they will be replacing it by "J". Yeal to Joel. Yehuda to Juda. Yeheshua to Joshua. Yusuf to Joseph. Yunus to Jonah. Yesus to Jesus. Yehowa to Jehova. You wrote, "While Jesus was on earth and with His disciples, they called Him: Master or Rabbi or Teacher and on occasion they called Him Lord." Jesus was called, Rabbi, Master, Teacher. Surely they knew what is his name and also called Master Iesous. I ask again, does Iesous sound like Jesus. Whats the matter you people. At least call him by the name his mother called. There is one thing I disagree with. Jesus is not God, he is a messenger of God. Jesus is not your saviour, God is your savior. Jesus said in the Gospel, "My father is greater than I, my father is greater than all." This is what your master said, but you dont do that. Because if you follow Jesus, you are following Islam.
