Jesus is the name given to the child of Mary and Joseph and who the Christian tradition understands as the human incarnation of God. “Jesus” comes from Greek, and is the English form of the Hebrew name “Joshua, which means “the Lord saves”. The Auslan sign comes from the popular representation of Jesus’ crucifixion which shows Jesus nailed to the cross by his hands.
