Somebody is always coming up with some nonsense or other like that. “Yeshua” is also the same as the name “Joshua;” in fact, a couple of places in the NT where the name “Jesus” is used, it is actually referring to “Joshua,” who took over the leadership of the Israelites when Moses died.
I can’t remember whether I read, or heard it, but it was recently, and it was something about people who tried to disprove the Bible with archeology. Thing is, no one has ever been able to disprove anything in the Bible using archeology. A number of people have tried to disprove the Bible because it mentions places not known historically - not mentioned anywhere but in the Bible - so they set out to prove that these places/people never existed. Lo and behold, their research backed up the Bible. One notable group of people that this happened with, or about, or whatever, were the Hittites. Some archeologist or other was going to “prove” that the Hittites never existed, since they were mentioned only in the Bible, so he started his research where the Bible seemed to indicate they had lived. And instead of disproving the Bible, it supported it. In fact, many archeologists will use the Bible as a starting point for their research.
