It was foretold that a virgin shall give birth and the new born will be named Emmanuel then why was Jesus named "Yeshua". Please explain...
You are confusing titles with proper names.
It would be akin to asking "Why is Obama referred to as POTUS when his parents called him Barak and his friends call him Barry?" Each title, name, and construct reveals more information about the identity of this man, or in the case of Jesus, this God who became Man and dwelt among us.
Let me use verses from Old Testament and New Testament:
In Aramaic, it must be noted that Immanuel is written as "Ammanueil" (Aramaic form of Hebrew name "Immanuel").
In Matthew 1:25, we see the naming of the child which is "Yeshua" in Aramaic (in English "Jesus").
I believe Aramaic name "Yeshua" can mean "YA has equated." YA (in Aramaic OT and Aramaic NT) is the Aramaic form of Hebrew "YH" in "YHWH." Because of this, Hebrew name "Yehochanan" is "Yochanan" in Aramaic. Another example is Hebrew name "Yehonathan" is "Yonathan" in Aramaic. For Respect, "YA" is addressed as "MarYA" (Master YA) in Aramaic OT and Aramaic NT.
From what I learned, YA has equated (Yeshua) the mankind by becoming a human being. Through this, God is with us.
Jesus Christ is the Word of God, who himself is God, who became flesh and made his dwelling among us, hence, the meaning, "God with us".
Notice here that Isaiah simply gave the name but Matthew gave us the meaning of the name Immanuel as "God with us". Isaiah also gave other names for the Messiah.
Since Immanuel was not the only name predicted by Isaiah, it has to do with the attributes of the Messiah. Literally, Jesus Christ is the meaning of Immanuel, God who dwelled among us, who became human, hence the title "Son of Man".
His whole title in Aramaic is actually " ישוע משחא בר אלהא אחדאיא ", or "Jesus the Messiah, the only Begotten Son of God", according to the Nicene creed written in Aramaic. It shows how God is with us in that respect.
Not only that, but the prophecies in Isaiah can be taken to mean qualities of the Messiah, literally being called (qarat shemo וְקָרָ֥את שְׁמ֖וֹ, or in Aramaic taqarai shemieh תקרי שמיה ), as in He will be called Immanuel, otherwise, it would have been "at shimo את שמו".
Also in this verse, the literal Hebrew and Aramaic both state that his name will be called, not that his name will be.
It's not directly "at shimo Immanual" it's "qarat shimo", or "called the name Emmanuel".
The Aramaic Targum and Hebrew text out the prophecy, showing it's what earlier Jews believed. It is as much a name as it is a title of Christ.
For a further understanding on how that works, look at Gen 17:19.
With the naming of Issac (Yitzhak). "w qarat at-shimo yitzkhaq וְקָרָ֥אתָ אֶת־ שְׁמ֖וֹ יִצְחָ֑ק". The accusative is here to show that his name will be indeed Yitzkhak, while in Isaiah, the prophecy states that "qarat shimo Imanuel", no "at" at all (no pun intended).
This "at" particle, according to An Introduction to Biblical Hebrew Syntax By Bruce K. Waltke, Michael Patrick, it states on page 162, section 10.1
In this case, with Yitzkhak, it's definite because it's saying his (the name) will be Issac. In Jesus' case, the name Imanuel does not directly refer to his name actual, but something he will be called. The same thing in Isaiah 9:6, there is no 'at' particle to show that it would be his actual name.
Again, we only see וַיִּקְרָ֨א שְׁמֹ֜ו, and there is no אֶת־שְׁמֹ֖ו, or the direct prophecy that his name will be, as how Issac was named.
Isaiah 7:13-14 is prediction of God becoming a man, by stretching out his arm to redeem mankind. And so, The Lord has become our salvation and deliverance. And Yeshua means salvation and deliverance. The Latin word "esus" means devoured, wasted, and consumed. And the latin word "sous" means the sun. And the latin word "sus" means the pig. And so, God sent his word through a physical birth as a testimony in accord with his own word. The son of God was The Lord in a human body. After his crucifixion, he rose from the grave and he is alive for ever. so why did tradition change his name into devoured, when the Messiah's name Yeshua means salvation, which also means preservation and the act of being kept alive.
First let us understand the name Emmanuel
Now upon closer examination of the Hebrew you will see that this name Emmanuel comes from two words.
The First Word
The Second Word
When the two words are together
The first word is used as a title. The Second Word is the !Name of the Living God!
Since Deciphering the meaning to the title I shall pass this teaching block, and continue to how the name "Jesus" is the Name of God.
If Jesus was Emmanuel why was Christ named Yeshua? Christ came in his own name. (John 5:43)
The Prophet was to come in his Name
It was foretold that a virgin shall give birth and the new born will be named Emmanuel then why was Jesus named "Yeshua". Please explain... Emmanuel means "God with us". The Father's name is composed from the four Hebrew letters Yod Hey Vav - Hey. The Hebrew form for Jesus is Yod Hey Vav - Shin Ayin. Now to get the correct pronunciation we can refer to the rules of Hebrew pronunciation and the example given to use by the Greek usage of the name of Jesus.
Now the first two letters Yod Hey follow a Cv pattern instead of a CvC pattern so the pronunciation is Yih. The beginning of the Greek usage agrees to this The Beginning I to Iesous has the sound of a Y. So the Hebrew and the Greek agree, the sound would be "Yie". The original sound of a Vav has the sound of "oo" you can see that the Greek authors tried to compare this sound to the Greek with the use of the "ou".
Now in the Fathers name the final Hey is most likely the sound of a breath a "ah" exhale. The the Shin has a "sh" sound, but the Greek does not. The closest sound Greek has is the Sigma an S sound. Ayin's are typically silent.
So in pronunciation the name of Jesus in the Original Hebrew for would have been very similar to "Yie-oo-sh" the Greek Form would have been verbalized "Yes - oos". The English J originated from the Greek I so natural to translation we have the English version "Jes-us". The word form Yeshua is incorrect for it enunciates the ending Ayin and ignors the sound of the Vav.
So "Yie - oo - ah" came to save "Yie - oo - sh" and since he was with us, "His name is with us" his name is God, so he was with us "Emmanuel". You see his name is Holy, and he would not let the demons speak (Mark 1:34). When you make silent the form "Yie - Oo" and remove it from "Yie - oo - sh" you are left with "sh" the powerful Holy word that stops evil and will make Satan run away.
You can also gain insight if you look at the meanings of the different names in the context of when and how they were revealed:
Isaiah reveals Emmanuel in the context of a passage relating to earthly kings and kingdoms and so this is sufficiently vague to give scope to the Jewish nationalists of the time to believe that the Messiah would be a warrior come to save the Jewish kingdom.
The name Yeshua is revealed at the time of the coming of Christ and communicates God's desire to rescue the world from itself, rather than to fight battles for the Jews.
This gap in revelation gives the Pharisees and Jewish nationalism a chance to establish itself in the Jewish people.
Yehoshu’a not yeshua. Yeshu'a is just a contracted form of Yehoshu'a and Yehoshu’a is Joshua in English, not Jesus. Jesus Christ is a name made up by the church and written into the bible. Jesus Christ has no significant meaning at all for the time period that Yehoshu’a Immanuel lived (Jesus Christ has no Hebrew meaning). Yehoshu'a Immanuel now there is a name. Yehoshu'a means Yahweh (the name of God) is salvation. Immanuel means Yahweh/Elohim is with us. God is salvation and God is with us. Also it says and he will be called Immanuel and he was called Immanuel. Yehoshu'a Immanuel of Nazareth. Research how many people were known by two names and the place they were from back then.
Because it was foretold that there will be a child, called Emmanuel, in the days of the king Ahab, who will then see that even before the baby was able to distinguish between good and evil, the kings, sieged Jerusalem, went away with nothing.
Than it was Yeshua who has nothing to do with the foretold by the prophet to Ahab.
