Simple answer is that, for the most part, he didn't. Most of the names that are seen in the Bible today aren't in fact the originals, they are the modernised Latin equivalents.

Shim'on = Simon (Hebrew origin).
Y'hochanan = John (Hebrew origin).
Mattithyahu = Matthew (Hebrew origin).
Ya'aqov = James (Hebrew origin meaning Jacob).
Bar-Tôlmay = Bartholomew (Aramaic, which is related to Hebrew).
Judah = Jude / Saint Jude (not to be confused with Judas Iscariot, Hebrew origin).
Yehuda = Judas Iscariot (Hebrew origin, Betrayed Yeshua/Yehosua the Messiah).
Cephas / Kephas = Peter (Hebrew / Aramaic origin meaning "Rock").
Tau'ma = Thomas (Aramaic origin).
Andrew = Andrew (Greek origin. Is the brother of Cephas / Kephas).
Phillip = Phillip (Greek origin).

I love your self

indeed you are correct and jesus is yeshua (which would be equivalent to Joshua or something similar) and god is Yahweh (spelling) so when christians say JESUS CHRIST or GOD DAMNIT they are infact doing nothing wrong since you dont translate names throughout languages, i.e. Jose doesnt become Josh just because you speak english.

in terms of theology, it's not the act that is sinful, it's the intention that is sinful.

Actually, God isn't even "Yahweh"
In the Bible, it says that God's name is "YHWH" which is unpronounceable, so we've given it the pronunciation "Yahweh"
God was also called Immanuel (Meaning 'God is with us'), Abba (Hebrew word for father), Elohim (Strong one), and many, many other names.

Impressive *applauds*

also, from what I'm aware the name Lucifer was also a latinised version of Satans name or something...
#78 to #75 - anon (04/13/2013) [-]
Lucifer was a title given to the planet Venus in a piece of literature. Lucifer basically means, "bright."
User avatar #79 to #78 - Furubatsu (04/14/2013) [-]
Thank you
User avatar #97 to #79 - thinegame (04/14/2013) [-]
Actually, in Latin, Lux, Lucis means "Light" and in English, -ifer means "bringer" or "maker."
So, Lucifer means "Light bringer" or "Light Maker".

Or something to that extent.

YEAH DUDE, AND WHY DOES THE BIBLE SAY ROMANS WERE THERE IN THE MIDDLE EAST? ROME IS IN ITALY LMAO STUPID CHRISTIANS AMIRITE?

Those names are English versions of the French or German versions of the Latin versions of the Greek versions of Hebrew/Aramaic names, so of course it's gonna sound really different if it translates through several languages. For example, Matthew is derived from the French Matthieu, derived from the Latin Mattias, which in turn is derived from the Greek Matthaíos, which finally comes from the Aramaic Mattithyahu.

The western world consists of the USA and Europe. In some interpretations, even the islamic world is considered to be western (in some philosophical interpretations for example).

Shimon = Simon/Peter
Andrew
Didymus = Thomas
Philippos = Philip
Mattityahu = Matthew
Nathanael = Bartholomew
Jacob = James the Greater
Lacobos = James the Less
Simon
Thaddeus = Jude
Yoḥanan = John
Yehudhah = Judas
Saul = Paul
Mattityahu = Matthias
Joseph = Barnabas

I'm atheist but I dislike seeing wrong information
Included here are the 12 disciples and a few others close to jesus
Some of the names were translated from Hebrew/Ancient in the new testament for the better understanding of the catholic population worldwide.

Because these names were translated from the language they were originally written in
