Usage notesEdit

  • The possessive of the Jesus may be either Jesus’s (pronounced with three syllables) or Jesus’ (pronounced with two syllables). The latter form was traditionally more common when referred to the Christian figure while the former is more common when referring to other people named Jesus, but both forms are attested in both cases. See s'.
