Is it "Ee-ye-sus Kris-tos", "Ee-ye-sos Kris-tos", or yet another variant?

Edit: I guess, I should have started this topic in the Foreign Languages section - sorry...

It is pronounced as "Ee-ye-su-se  ki-re-se-to-se". Other name for christ in Amharic is 'Me-de-ha-ni-a-le-m' which means 'savior of the world' in English and also Amanuel(which is basically the same in Hebrew? I think) and it is pronounced as A-ma-nu-e-le.
