Threesus.

Tre-sús for my Hispanic friends.

Edit: Oh wow silver. Does that make me 1/30 Judas?

Someone told me to find Jesus.

So I turned to the Internet. All I could find was guys offering to do my landscaping.

Paraphrasing from Wikipedia:

The first version of “Jesus” with an S at the end is the Greek Ἰησοῦς (Iesous), distinct from the Hebrew “Yeshua”.

Because it’s derived from Greek, Jesus is like octopus in that the correct pluralization is technically “Jesodes”.

Octopous is a third declension adjective in Greek which is why it ends in “odes” in the plural. Iesous is a second declension noun, so if it had a plural it would be more like Iesoi.

But there is a Latin word Iesus/Jesus that we’re actually saying. It is a “very irregular” fourth declension masculine noun. If it had a plural like other fourth declension masculine nouns it would be Iesūs/Jesūs where you say the ū longer than a u.

How about "Jesuses" because we're speaking English and not Latin or ancient Greek.

I mean yeah sure, that’s the paragraph I should have put in at the end. Same reason I say “octopuses” is the plural of octopus.

In fact here’s my actual zesty take not very related to this but we’re here now: modern coinage Ancient Greek/Latin words are bad and should be replaced. “Biology” was coined by some European fancy lad who knew Greek in like 1800. It’s a class signifier. We could call it “life science” instead so you don’t have to learn a whole separate vocab. Ditto words like “lupine, vulpine, feline.” They basically double the amount of work and English learner has to do. Totally unnecessary.

Not a terrible idea for some things. Economics, for example, is actually realtively simple to understand but people decided that they'd use terrible names for things.

However, in medicine all those fancy latin words lets you communicate a little quicker than an English equivalent.

Man we are of the same cloth then. I've studied both Latin and Ancient Greek, but I find people who opine over the "correct" endings to words like this are just trying to show everyone how smart they are.

I think the most important takeaway is that it absolutely does not have an apostrophe in it.

In German we actually say „Jesi Geburt“, Geburt meaning birth. Since Jesi is the possessive form of Jesus in latin.
