In class a few weeks ago, someone raised the question, Why is Jesus called Christ? Our professor replied, Christ is a title, the Greek word for Messiah. That’s why sometimes we hear, Jesus the Christ, or Jesus the Messiah. Messiah means anointed.
In other words, Christ is not His last name. He is not Mr. Christ.
I found this wonderful source about the meaning of Christ with reference to scripture, so I wanted to share it with you. Be blessed my beloved in learning and growing in the knowledge and Word of God!
