I have two questions:

1) I heard Yada say on the radio that Yashua issued no word saying that we are not to judge, but that that is a poor translation. Can anyone tell me what the accurate translation and meaning of the verse is?

I am referring to Matthew 7:1-5.

2) Also, about the vowels--after reading the exposition in ITG, I was left wondering how we know that Yashua is "Yashua," since there is apparently no H there that would make it sound like "Yahshua?" How then do we know that it is not Yoshua, or Yeshua--s the use of the "a" based on what Yada concludes to be the contraction of the two words making up His name? If so, are the people right who throw the H in there, and spell it as "Yahshua?" And what about its variant, "Yashuah..." does the H on the end change anything in terms of the meaning it denotes?

At least to me, in the name, "Yahowah," the pronunciation of what we think of as the vowels is much more readily apparent.

Thanks for answering,

(Please correct me if I am posting wrongly--I was hesitant to start a new topic with each new question, unless that's what I should be doing...it seems that questions can be never-ending.)

To the first question, it is my understanding, and my Greek is limited, that the word translated as judge means separate. So He said do not separate or you will be separated. In context meaning do not separate others from God because then you will be separated from God.

To the second question. We are able to determine how to pronounce Yahowsha's name the same way we are Yahowah's name. Contrary to what is popularly taught, Hebrew has vowels. Yahowsha's name is very similar to Yahowah's name. They both start with the same 3 letters, Yod Hey Waw in Yahowah's name there is another Hey, in Yahowsha's name there is a Shin and an Ayin at the end. So the first three letters we know will be pronounce Yahow, for evidence see ITG, the only question is how are the Shin and the Ayin pronounced. Fortunatly here there is little to no debate. The Shin is the sh sound and the Ayin is the a' sound so Yahowsha'
Don't take my word for it, Look it up.
