The letter “J” was not invented until the 1500’s, so how was there a Jesus or John or Jacob or Jonah or Joseph or Jude in the Bible?

The letter “J” wasn’t invented until the 1500’s, so there was no official Jesus, John, Jacob, Jonah, Joseph, Jude, etc… in the bible.

There may have been a person by the name of Yeshua ben Yosef, but this is debatable as well because the translation means “Joshua, son of Joseph”, not Jesus.

Some may say that his name was spelled with an “I” instead of a “J” (more specifically Iesous or Iesus), but that still doesn’t make him “Jesus”.

The Encyclopedia Americana contains the following quote on the J:

“The form of ‘J’ was unknown in any alphabet until the 14th century. Either symbol (J,I) used initially generally had the consonantal sound of Y as in year. Gradually, the two symbols (J,l) were differentiated, the J usually acquiring consonantal force and thus becoming regarded as a consonant, and the I becoming a vowel.It was not until 1630 that the differentiation became general in England.”

In the original 1611 version of the King James Version of the Bible there was no “J” letter in this Bible for because it did not exist. James was spelled Iames. Jesus was spelled Iesous.

No one wrote about Jesus until many years after his alleged death. Granted that people were illiterate back then but surely, someone could have drawn a picture or two of his alleged miracles.

I mean, really… think about the letter “J”.  Does anyone think there was a “John” living in the Middle East several thousand years ago?

    Just because the transliteration of their name into English – a language that was nonexistent when they existed – has a J in it doesn’t mean they didn’t exist. That’s a laughable argument.
