Some have said… and I quote:
“The Jewish Messiah’s given name at Birth also was Jesus Christ, a Greek name and not a Hebrew name.
Yeshua is a Messianic Jewish invention where the Jews are falsely waiting for Yeshua to come to earth to re establish the kingdom of Israel and to rebuild the Jewish temple in Jerusalem.. It will never happen, these are false hopes for Jesus Christ himself is the new temple of God for all Christians.”
First of all the sentence “The Jewish messiah’s given name at Birth also was Jesus Christ, a Greek name and not a Hebrew name,” is very contradictory. The author of this article states that the given name of the Jewish Messiah is Jesus Christ. So he is saying the Jews that speak Hebrew gave a baby a Greek name (no, they would give a baby a Hebrew name). Then they put in the word also to indicate that there was possible another name the baby was also given. I am going to assume that since this baby’s parents are Jewish that they would give their baby a Hebrew name which would be YESHUA. The word YESHUA is not written in Hebrew letters. The word YESHUA is written with English letters as close as they could get to the phonetic sounds of the Hebrew. YESHUA’s name in Hebrew is.

The author states that this name Jesus Christ is the Jewish Messiah’s invention. If this is true then we should use the name YESHUA because this name of the Savior is not the Jews invention.
The next sentence is has the most truth in it. “Jews are falsely waiting for Yeshua to come to earth to re establish the kingdom of Israel and to rebuild the Jewish temple in Jerusalem.”
Here is what the Jew’s are looking for in a Messiah. They call their Savior The mashiach.
The mashiach will be a great political leader descended from King David (Jeremiah 23:5). The mashiach is often referred to as “mashiach ben David” (mashiach, son of David). He will be well-versed in Jewish law, and observant of its commandments (Isaiah 11:2-5). He will be a charismatic leader, inspiring others to follow his example. He will be a great military leader, who will win battles for Israel. He will be a great judge, who makes righteous decisions (Jeremiah 33:15). But above all, he will be a human being, not a god, demi-god or other supernatural being.
It has been said that in every generation, a person is born with the potential to be the mashiach. If the time is right for the messianic age within that person’s lifetime, then that person will be the mashiach. But if that person dies before he completes the mission of the mashiach, then that person is not the mashiach.

This is what the Jewish people are looking for in their mashiach.
Jesus/Yeshua/or is all the right names.But if the author of the original article believes that we should not use the Hebrew name because we should distance ourselves from the Hebrew and just use the Greek then that will mean we can’t call Matthew the disciple Matthew anymore. Matthew is only a Hebrew name. We would have to call him Maththaios. Here is the information from a very informational website.
Matthew’s is a Hebrew name that comes awkwardly into Greek as Μαθθαῖος (Maththaios). When speaking Aramaic or Hebrew, his friends and family likely called him by the Semitic version, מַתִּתְיָ֫הוּ (Mattith-yahu) or several of the available shortned versions thereof (Mattaʾi, Mattiyaʾ, or Mattiyah). These are derived from the Hebrew nātan (“he gave”) and mean something like “gift of God”. This name and its variants were very common in Hebrew.2
