Rabbi Kaduri Said Jesus is the Messiah ...

At least that's what an article in Israel Today would like to imply. Supposedly Rabbi Yitzchak Kaduri famed kabbalist master, wrote a note that was not to be revealed until a year after his death. The note is to contain the name of Moshiach which when looking at the initials spells at Yehoshua. The Christian's would like to say it spells Yeshua only problem with that is one of the words has a "hay". Clearly that's not the name if he had any in mind.

I wrote a post on this a while ago. Check it out here. That post includes a picture of the note.

I think he did mean to say Yehoshua (despite claims of others that is does not), but that he was not referring to Yeshhu haNotzri.

Some Christians claim that Yehoshua *was* Yeshu's full name.

these people supporting this thoery are assuming they were able to accurately decript the hidden message. Maybe the name written was yehoshua as they decrypted, or maybe they are completely wrong and loooked with the wrong code. Maybe the name is not yehoshua but something else completely.

And even if Yehoshua is the right name, is there only one Yehoshua to choose from?

I think both Rabbi Kadouri and the Christians are nuts.
