Then I heard about John Cranmer’s possum. He’s one is down to earth those blokes who will tell you as it is whether you like it or not and a loveable rogue. He lives in John Cranmer’s garage rolla-door and clunks around over the roof like as though (he’s) wearing iron hob-nail boots. THE possum wrote of a man called Yeshua. Now I have no idea of who Yeshua is, I don’t know him from a bar of soap, and lizards don’t use soap. So, I had Robert send him a note by cocky mail and leave it near to the rolla-door. I wanted to know a little more about this strange name as well as who Possum is. This is what he said:
Hope your day went well
Reckon you would have enjoyed this morning if not the arvo!
So what about Yeshua? It’s the original name of the Bloke usually called ‘Jesus’
It was probably closer to “Joshua”
Madam Google came up with the following bit
*Why did they change Yeshua’s name to Jesus?
The New Testament authors decided to use the Greek “s” sound in place of the “sh” in Yeshua and then added a final “s” to the end of the name to make it masculine in the language. … Since Latin was the preferred language of the Catholic Church, the Latin version of “Yeshua” was the name for Christ throughout Europe.
You want t’know a bit more about me?
Well, you asked for it
