What Does the Title ‘Christ’ Mean?


The word ‘Christ’ comes from Hebrew ‘Messias’ or ‘Messiah’.


‘Messias’ is simply how real Roman Catholics in the English language have spelled it, coming from a Greek translation of the Bible’s Old Testament in ancient times. Catholics --- that is, true Christians --- of the first millennium after Jesus often used this Old Testament translation, called the ‘Septuagint’.


Whether you call it ‘Christ’, ‘Messias’ or ‘Messiah’, it’s all the same thing.


It means The Anointed One’. This is Who the Man, Jesus Christ, is.
