Hope you don’t mind if I ignore most of your comment (it’s that whole “blasphemy” thing I try to avoid….)Jesus is a Greek derivation of Joshua, meaning "God with us."
Anyways, this is wrong. Jesus is not a derivative of “Joshua” (plus there is no “J” in the Greek language), but of “Yeshua” or “Y’shua” taken from the Hebrew verb Yasha which means to save or rescue.
The name “Emmanuel” is the name that means “God with us”
Matthew 1:23 KJV
 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.
