1) Jesus Christ in the Bhavishya Mahapurana

Bhavishya Mahapurana, book three, chapter two, verse 34 says,

 “Ko bhavaanithi tham praaha Sobhovaachamudaanwitha: Eshaputhram cha maam vidhi Kumaaree garbha sambahavam Aham Eesa Maseeha nama:”

which means, (king Saka asks) “May I know who you are? That man replied happily, I am the Son of God, born to a virgin. My name is Eesa Maseeha. ”.

Namely, (asks the king saga) "May I know who you are? To which the man happily replied, I am the son of God born to a virgin woman. My name is Isa Masih." (Messiah)

According to this, Isa (Jesus Christ) is the son of God born to a virgin woman who was called the Messiah (Christ).

Bhavishya Mahapurana   (Text 23)

ko bharam iti tam praaha
su hovacha mudanvitah
iishaa purtagm maam viddhi
kumaarigarbha sambhavam

"The king asked, 'Who are you sir?' 'You should know that I am Isha Putra, the Son of God'. he replied blissfully, and 'am born of a virgin.' ”

Bhavishya Mahapurana     (Text 30)

isha muurtirt-dradi praptaa
nityashuddha sivamkari
ishamasihah iti ca
mama nama pratishthitam

 “Having placed the eternally pure and auspicious form of the Supreme Lord in my heart, O protector of the earth planet, I preached these principles through the Mlecchas' own faith and thus my name became 'isha-masiha' (Jesus the Messiah).


2) Jesus in Islam

In Islam, Isa refers to Jesus. For other uses, see Isa (disambiguation) and Isa (name).

In Islam,ʿĪsā ibn Maryam (Arabic: عِيسَى ٱبْنُ مَرْيَمَ, lit. 'Jesus, son of Mary') is the penultimate prophet and messenger of God (Allah) and the Messiah, who was sent to guide the Children of Israel with a revelation: Injīl (Arabic for "gospel").

In the Quran, Jesus is described as the Messiah (al-Masīḥ), born of a virgin, performing miracles, accompanied by disciples, rejected by the Jewish establishment, and being raised to heaven. The Quran asserts that Jesus wasn't crucified nor died on the cross, and was miraculously saved by God. He is believed to have been the only two humans to be born 'sinless', along with his mother Maryam. The Quran places Jesus amongst the greatest prophets, and mentions him with various titles, the most prominent being 'Spirit of God' (Rūḥ Allāh). He is referred, directly or indirectly, over 187 times, and thus, he is one of the most mentioned people in the Quran by references; 25 times by the name Isa, third-person 48 times, first-person 35 times and the rest as titles.

3) Bharathiyar's poem 'Jesus Christ'

When Bharathiar sings about Jesus Christ in his poem, he writes that the Lord (Eesen) came died upon the cross, and rose up resurrected on the third day,  

Bharathiyar's  poem (English)

The Lord came died upon the cross,
And rose up resurrected on the third day,
Devoted and glorious Mary Magdalene
Was witness to this wondrous event
Listen, countrymen, to its secret meaning;
The gods will come and live within us,
And shield us from evil, and redeem us for ever
If only we would shed our pride of self.

2.Look! Mary Magdalene is Love incarnate;
And look! Jesus Christ is the Holy Spirit!

If first we shed this embroiled evil,
Godly sacred life will manifest itself in three days.
Mary Magdalene, Love incarnate, saw the radiant vision
Of that godly sacred life beaming from the face
Of golden splendour, and praised it in adoration
This is bliss indeed! The greatest, most ecstatic bliss!’

3.If you tie the senses fast to the Cross called Truth,
And hammer them down with the nails of austere penance
Gloriously great and sacred life will shine with radiant splendour
In the sublime and celestial body of Lord Jesus Christ.
Look! Mary Magdalene is true womanhood incarnate;
And Jesus Christ is eternal virtue, which all cherish and revere!
Look! This is the finest, greatest secret, and inmost, mystic meaning;
Yet anyone can learn and practise it in just a moment’s time.

4 ) Ganesha

Ganesha means = Gana + Isha ( Song of Isa )

The meaning of the word Gana is song and the word Gana is based on the Tamil word Gaanam (song)

The name Ganesha is a Sanskrit compound, joining the words gana (gaṇa), meaning  song or a 'group, multitude, or categorical system' and isha (īśa),

5) Isha prayer

The Eisa prayer (Arabic: صلاة العشاء ṣalāt al-ʿišāʾ, "night prayer") is one of the five obligatory prayers (Islamic prayer). Since an Islamic day begins at sunset, the Eisa prayer is actually the second prayer of the day and if it is counted from midnight, it is the fifth prayer of the day which is the four rak'ah prayers in Sunni Islam. Two Sunnah rak'ahs following Isha are highly recommended, and three rak'ahs are recommended. Some optional prayers may be recited after the Eid prayer, including the Nafilat ul-Layl prayers (collectively called tahajjud) and the Tarawih in Ramadan.

The five daily prayers are collectively one of the five pillars of Islam in Sunni Islam and one of the ten practices of the religion according to Shia Islam (Furu al-Din). In Kashmir it is called Khoftan Nemaz.​


​Examining the above, we can see that the name Jesus refers to Jesus himself
