When the Greeks transcribed Hebrew names from the Old Testament, into their own language, they changed the form of those names by adding a silent “S” to end. For example, Judah became Judas. Jonah became Jonas. The names are still pronounced the same, because the “S” is silent. You are probably more familiar with the French language, which utilizes a similar device. The French word LES is pronounced LAY. The “S” on the end is silent, as it also is in the French words rendezvous and debris.
