[quote=dee_lt4life]Did Jesus have a last name? And, if so, what was it? This might be a silly question, but I am truly curious. In the Bible, no one had a last name, they only belonged to certain families. Thanks for reading, and if I only got a giggle out of you. Then, at least I reached you.
To Jesus through Mary ~
Let’s see. If God’s last name is Dammit, then… Wonder if he’s related in some way to Gumby?:rolleyes:
No really, Jesus would have been known as Y’shua Ben Josef, Jesus, the son of Joseph. He was also known as Jesus of Nazareth. The name Jesus was quite common, so they had to be distinguished one from the other.
F.Y.I., The custom of passing on exact family surnames is essentially a Norman French invention, and the Norman French
hadn’t come to be at the time.
