Greek for Jesus: Ιησουσ. (pron. Yé-soos or Yee-soos)

Greek for Zeus: Ζευσ. (pron. Zyoos or Zefs)

They're not pronounced similarly. They're not spelled similarly. Iesous is a form of Hebrew Joshua. Zeus clearly is not.

Ridiculous idea. Pay no attention to it.

I remember going to a strange Greek candle shop and asking the lady there, because at the time I knew no Greek, if John in Greek was "ioannos" or "Ioannis," and she said, "Whatever you want it to be."

Zeus=Jesus is just more bizarre etymological relativism.

IIRC, the name "Jesus" is an English transliteration of the Latin transliteration of the Greek transliteration of the Original Hebrew Name "Yeshua" (the "s" sound at the end is the masculine end to many names in Greek if I've been told correctly, also the "j" sound was added at the beginning so it would be easier for people with German accents).  Whoever told you it was a pagan name has no idea what he was talking about, all it was was a sad case of over-transliteration.

I've heard that one before and even though I think a case can be made for Iesous being a Greek name I don't think the Zeus etymology works.  A better case can be made for Iesous being the male form of Iaso.

"Originally, the name of the Messiah

This particular twaddle has been doing the rounds for about 20 years now and I remember thinking yeah that must be right. unfortunately it's a reconstruction based on a false assumption and explained completely wrong. If Jesus had been originally Yehushua it would have been Latinised as Joshua, not Jesus.

If that is the OP's source then LBK is correct totally and I must redefine "twaddle" personally to something more odious.

Arachne can speak for herself, of course, but I'm sure her choice of word was out of politeness, the generosity of which is hardly justified, given the sheer stupidity of the premise of the OP.  Wink

יהושע > Ἰησοῦς > Jesus, is of Semitic origin.
Ζεῦς > Zeus, is of Proto-Indo-European root *dyeu- : to gleam, to shine, cognate with Latin Deus, dies, Sanskrit दिवा divA (daytime). The Greek εὐδία which means fair weather and the Sanskrit सुदिव (sudiva), which means bright or fine day are of the same origin.

Close to where I considered going. This is further to follow on this line in pre-Christian, 5th century usage, but no matter, now that we see, perhaps, from where this may have originated.

Where is Studying_Orthodoxy, I wonder?

I've never heard of this before... you must be reading some pretty obscure stuff  Grin

It is not very obscure. It is linked to the beliefs about the cross being a pagan symbol and that Christianity is sun worship.

Not everything one reads is true.

Indeed it is not.

Well, no scholars agree with those ideas, so I would discard them.

Quite a few do. There are many discussions about Christianity being based on the old religions of Babylon, Egypt  and Rome.

Greek for Jesus: Ιησουσ. (pron. Yé-soos or Yee-soos)

Greek for Zeus: Ζευσ. (pron. Zyoos or Zefs)

They're not pronounced similarly. They're not spelled similarly. Iesous is a form of Hebrew Joshua. Zeus clearly is not.

Ridiculous idea. Pay no attention to it.

Thank you for clarifying. It may indeed be possible that they have no evidence for this claim. This claim is made by many in the Scared Name Movement.

Zeus=Jesus is just more bizarre etymological relativism.

That may indeed be the case. I hope it is.

I would like to read these materials before I tender an opinion.

You can find them all over the internet.

IIRC, the name "Jesus" is an English transliteration of the Latin transliteration of the Greek transliteration of the Original Hebrew Name "Yeshua" (the "s" sound at the end is the masculine end to many names in Greek if I've been told correctly, also the "j" sound was added at the beginning so it would be easier for people with German accents).  Whoever told you it was a pagan name has no idea what he was talking about, all it was was a sad case of over-transliteration.

Well this idea comes from a larger set of ones that Christianity is based on paganism or sun worship. Therefore they want to say that the Christ of Christianity was a different person, not Jesus but a man who had a Hebrew name.

I put down money that this pile of twaddle is among said materials.

Yes this is one example of these sorts of ideas.

Of late I have been reading some materials which say that the name Jesus is the same as Zeus.
I've heard that one before and even though I think a case can be made for Iesous being a Greek name I don't think the Zeus etymology works.  A better case can be made for Iesous being the male form of Iaso.

Understood and what would be the implication of this?

Just suggesting that the sun is a universally acknowledged symbol of divinity, so claiming that Christianity is sun worship, is not saying a whole lot.

That's right there is no pagan origin of the name of Iesous from Zeus, the Alexandrian Jews when translating the Old Hebrew Into the Greek Septuagit translated Joshua the Son of Nun as "Iesous" Joshua LXX 1και εγενετο μετα την τελευτην μωυση ειπεν κυριος τω ιησοι υιω ναυη τω υπουργω μωυση λεγων.

It sounds like the pagan- parallelomania or pagan-copy cat thesis, refuted in the first half of the 20th century. These books destroy the pagan copy cat thesis. Written by non-Orthodox scholars, but still beneficial.

Of late I have been reading some materials which say that the name Jesus is the same as Zeus. Apparently this name is also a curse in Latin. What are peoples opinions on this?

I think this was developed in the same room as the X-Men, or was it The Hulk.

I'm interested in seeing Jewish Greek Literature using the name Iesous, does anyone know of any Jewish Literature which uses Iesous?.

The Septuagint.

Apart from our Bible, is it found in any Greek Talmudic or other Jewish commentary ?.

As Cyrillic posted, in Septuagint the book called "Ἰησοῦς τοῦ Ναυὴ" (Greek doesn't make a distinction between the name of the Lord, Jesus, and Joshua of Navi, they're both named «Ἰησοῦς»)
