WHAT DOES CHRIST MEAN IN ENGLISH?
Christ is a translation of the Hebrew מָשִׁיחַ and the Syriac ܡܫܝܚܐ, the Messiah, and is used as a title for Jesus in the New Testament. In common usage, "Christ" is generally treated as synonymous with Jesus of Nazareth. The followers of Jesus became known as Christians because they believed Jesus to be the Messiah prophesied in the Hebrew Bible, for example in the Confession of Peter. Jesus came to be called "Jesus Christ", meaning "Jesus the Christós" after his death and believed resurrection. Before, Jesus was usually referred to as "Jesus of Nazareth" or "Jesus son of Joseph". In the epistles of Paul the Apostle, the earliest texts of the New Testament, Paul most often referred to Jesus as "Christ Jesus", or "Christ". Christ was originally a title, yet later became part of the name "Jesus Christ", though it is still also used as a title, in the reciprocal use Christ Jesus, meaning "The Messiah Jesus". Jesus was not, and is not, accepted by most Jews as their Messiah.
The first definition of Christ in the dictionary is Jesus of Nazareth, regarded by Christians as fulfilling Old Testament prophecies of the Messiah. Other definition of Christ is the Messiah or anointed one of God as the subject of Old Testament prophecies.Christ is also an image or picture of Christ.
