From the Ancient Greek Ἰάσων (Iasōn), from ἰάομαι (iaomai, "I heal"). The Jason mentioned in the New Testament (Acts 17:5-9, Romans 16:21 ) is probably a Greek rendering of Joshua.

  • I learned the hard lesson this season. mike Wed, Mar 4, 2009 at 03: 24 AM EST there's too little love in the world. and it's a shame that even when an entire show that is centered around the premise of brining people together - and that show results is 2 people falling in love with each other, that people feel the need to chime in and create ill will and drama towards the situation. i wish jason and molly the best, truly. and i hope that people who are feeling angry could take a deep breath, relax and try not to take other people's lives so seriously. these are just 2 people trying to make their lives (and Ty's life) a little brighter by being together and finding their slice of happiness in this crazy world and i'll be happy to see it work out. the show placed a deadline on J and it ended up causing some crazo drama. in the real world, i sincerely doubt that Jason would have ever had the chance to date 25 girls at the same time, and i he would have fallen in love with 2 people over a 6 week period, asked one to marry him, and then changed his mind.
