Mark,Thanks for the note. If you will compare the earlier usage of IHSOU
in the LXX, reference the "General" who followed Moses, (a whole book is
named after him) you can get an idea of why I wrote what I did. I do not
believe he is called "Jesus", even though the Greek word is the same,
and he was called IHSOUS in the LXX long before the physical Messiah
came on the scene. I have written a 200 page self-published book on this
topic, but don't wish to bring it to this list as the total subject is
probably not (though I may be wrong in thinking so) appropriate for
B-Greek list. Hope this answers part of your question.
