Was the name Jesus common during the time he was on earth or was the Jesus of the Bible the only guy named Jesus at the time?

Yes it was very common.

"Jesus" comes from the Greek "Iesous," which itself was a rendering of the Hebrew "Yeshua." This was a very common name, both in its own right and as a shortened form of "Yehoshua," the English equivalent of which is "Joshua."

Christ is not a name. It is a title.
http://en.wikipedia.org...

The English word Christ comes from the Greek Christos which is a Greek translation of the Hebrew "mashiyach ". Both words mean "anointed". The Hebrew word has also been translated twice as "Messiah" and 37 times as "anointed"

Jesus Christ means Jesus the messiah or Jesus the anointed.
Many priests in the OT were "mashiyach " or anointed.

Anna may have more detailed answers, but in short I think I can clarify. Names didn't really work that way during that time and even for centuries later. Jesus was referred to as Jesus of Nazareth. Similiarly Irenaeus was referred to as Irenaeus of Lyons. You can see this for pretty much everybody's names during that time haha.

So what we are looking at here is a whole bunch of guys named Jesus of Nazareth at the same point in history?

The bible characters did not have surnames like we do these days. They were "first name".... son of... whoever the father was.
Jesus was referred to as ..
The son of David. ( Matt 1:1. Matt 9:27)
The son of man ( Matt 8:20, Matt16:13 )
The son of God. (Matt 8:29, Mark 1:1)
The son of Joseph (Luke 3:23, John 1:45, John 6:42)

Yeah but with a name that common and so many miracle workers claiming to be the messiah, what's the chances of there not being one?

Actually that's incorrect. "Jesus" is just the Greek translation of "Yeshua" and technically "Yeshua" is a sepetate term to "Yehoshua".

Anyone who tells you that a man named Jesus existed 2,000 years ago is a liar because the name Jesus didn't exist back then. God's first batch of saints wrote and spoke in languages that didn't contain this name.

Just because the English version of the name did not exist does not mean the name did not exist Brad. Don't be so stupid.
The word you use to address a person is irrelevant anyway. "A rose by any other name...."
In Jewish custom the meanings of the names are far more important than the names themselves anyway.

His Hebrew name was Yeshua or similar, and both his greek (actually Iesus but I, J and Y were intercvhangable at one point) name and his Hebrew one were fairly common.

Well the Magician DYNAMO could well be jebus reincarnated for all we know?

I have seen DYNAMO in action, even walking on water!

So IF there were a miracle working jebus 2000 years ago outside of Story book Land, it was probably just a magician doing similar party tricks!

In Jewish custom the meanings of the names are far more important than the names themselves anyway.

Antichrists who published the Bible with all their religious laws and traditions in it had no idea what a saint was and why God used us. Anyone who tells you that a man named Jesus existed 2,000 years ago is a liar because they didn't have this name back then. It makes no difference to us saints what the former saints names were because the flesh is NOT important. We all get killed for testifying to the same exact knowledge of God that the former prophets testified to. However, the prophets weren't used by God to reveal the knowledge of the past, present and future ( tree of life, also known as His invisible creation ) that was hidden by the observed world ( tree of the knowledge of good and evil ).

You argue with everyone because you have no knowledge of God to understand the prophecies or what the symbolic names and terms mean in the prophecies. You don't even believe there's a Creator that created all the life experiences for His people.

Those poor antichrists and anyone else in the bible stories did not have you around to teach them they were just illusions Brad. Obviously nothing was revealed to anyone till you came along. You alone are the savior of the world. It's a shame your life is so short and most of the world have no clue you even exist.
People did not speak English in those countries in the bible stories so they were not using English words at all Brad. The names they used has nothing to do with you being killed either so stop making everything about you.

You argue with everyone because you have no knowledge of God to understand the prophecies or what the symbolic names and terms mean in the prophecies. You don't even believe there's a Creator that created all the life experiences for His people.

You argue with everyone because you think you know everything and enjoy putting everyone else down and telling them how ignorant and stupid they are.
All you do is make a total idiot of yourself Brad. No one takes you seriously.
You need psychological help.
You create your own illusions. You create your own self deception. You create your own reality and then you try to tell everyone else that they are dreaming theirs up and nothing is real when you are doing exactly the same thing. Your reality is just as imaginary as anyone elses. It comes from your own mind and your own perception of what is real and what is not to you.

There were many saints like me who testified to the knowledge of God that's been hidden from His people ever since the first man appeared in this world. All us saints are killed for our testimonies and I'll be the last to be killed in January to end the 1,000 year reign of Christ.

You have no knowledge of God to understand what us saints possess.

There were many saints like me who testified to the knowledge of God that's been hidden from His people ever since the first man appeared in this world. All us saints are killed for our testimonies and I'll be the last to be killed in January to end the 1,000 year reign of Christ.

You have no knowledge of God to understand what us saints possess.

I do not believe you will be killed in January. I believe you are suffering from your own delusions and you need help. Please get that help when you realize you are still alive after "D" day and have been lying to yourself all these years.

Because the name jesus was around as a common name is no evidence that a literal Miracle working one literally existed then?

I like to refer to miracles as magic.

So you see no distinction between ' magic & miracles? '.

Magic is something a person does to fool other people into believing they have witnessed a miracle.
