This is how mainstream English transliteration worked. It took this route with this result. If one was to translate Yehoshua (Yeshua) directly to English then Joshua would have been the most proper.

Mostly a backup transcript of the video.
Name of Messiah in tanach (O.T.)!

Basics: Of course Christ was Jewish and his common name would be Hebrew. The N.T. was written in Greek and all Greek manuscripts have the name "Iesous" which is translated "Jesus" in English sources.
In the 3rd to 2nd century BC the Tanach was translated into the Greek (The Septuagint). The name that was translated into "Iesous" from the Hebrew bible was Yehoshua (Yeshua).
Those familure with the Hebrew name of Jesus (Yeshua) know that he and Joshua shared the same name. (Joshua the son of Jehozadak) Zec.6:11, Haggai 1:12, Haggai 2:2<-- Joshua is called Yehoshua in here in the O.T. (Tanach). The same Joshua is called Yeshua in Aramaic (original Hebrew) in: Ezra 3:8, Ezra 5:2
The Book of Zechariah foretells the name of the Messiah!
*Zec.3:8 Hear now, O Joshua the high priest, thou, and thy fellows that sit before thee: for they are men wondered at: for, behold, I will bring forth my servant the BRANCH.
"Wondered" above is the Hebrew (#4159 From H3302 in the sense of conspicuousness; a miracle; by implication a token or omen: - miracle, sign, wonder (-ed at).) term MOFAITH. Here we see that "Joshua is a wonderous sign (omen)/ or sign of things to come(- which is the NIV translation). The verse goes unto to say How Joshua is symbolic of things to come- "for, behold, I will bring forth my servant the BRANCH." (The Messiah is mentioned as The Branch throughout scripture and even in the constilations) Is.42:1; 52:13; 53:11/ Zec.6:12, Is.4:2, Is.11:1, Jer.23:5
The name of the Messiah was revealed through Joshua the son of Josedech, who foreshadowed the coming of Messiah by sharing the same name and also being a King and a Priest.
*Zec.3:9 For behold the stone that I have laid before Joshua; upon one stone shall be seven eyes: behold, I will engrave the graving thereof, saith the LORD of hosts, and I will remove the iniquity of that land in one day.
The Rock here is Christ (Ps.118:2, Is.8:26; 28:16, Acts.4:11, Matt.21:42, 1 Pet.2:6-8, the one who fulfilled the Passover sacrifice in a single day. The name of which we were given ahead of time. The name that means Salvation of Yah! The number seven means spiritual completeness and the eyes are omissions (dominions). God engraves this stone showing that this stone bares the name of God as well as Yeshua does! Note that Yeshua came not to do his own will but the will of The Father. ***** Heb.8:5; 9:24, Matt.12:6, Heb.10:4, Heb.2:17, Jn.1:29, Matt.21:42, Mk.12:10, Lk.20:17, Heb.9:25-26
Again Joshua which was a king (Zec.6:11) and a priest (Zec.3:8/ Ps.110:4) was a shadow of The Yeshua to come. 1 Cor.15:1-6/ Is.53:5-12, Dan.9:24-26, Ps.22:15-16, Zec.12:10, Ps.16:9-11
