Why does so many people call Jesus (Christ)
Christ left Jesus on the cross. He sits at the right hand of God fully God. No need for the anointing.
He is a friend that sticks closer than a brother, but you won't call him by his given name him
Maybe some of you missed that in your study, or diluting the most powerful name ever, is your only way to say it

The term the Anointed: Hebrew Messiah - Greek Christ, is just a label for identification purposes. That IDs Him as the one Moses spoke of that would supplant the Old Covenant. It has nothing to do with His status today. :cool:

Christ is not his name, it's his office and title which means anointed or chosen. He will be that for eternity, "...both Lord and Christ", noted as such after his resurrection. Note Acts 2:36.

So you all call your friends by there title.
So what your sayings is his disciples would have called him Christ.
Also Paul was a servant of Jesus.
Also are you really sure that Christ wasn't added to dilute the name of Jesus.
You know, like Christ Mas

News Flash, Jesus was Jewish. In their religion the King to be was anointed with oil (See 2 Samuel 12:7) When Nathan anoints David it isn't a dot of oil on his forehead. He pours a Rams Horn full of first pressed oil onto David's head. Oil was pressed 3 times, the first pressing produces the cleanest/purest oil. The Temple Priests got the first pressing. Oil also is a representation of the Holy Spirit.

The word Christ: from Latin Christus, from Greek khristos """the anointed""" (translation of Hebrew mashiah; see messiah).

Jesus is his name. Christ (the anointed via the Holy Spirit) is a Title.

So, Jesus the Christ is the how he should be viewed

Actually, Christmas is one word. Jesus Christ is two words. And Christ Mas actually means "more Christ" in Spanish. :cool:

About what we call names today. They are not quite the same, not with the majority that is, as they were in the times of the Word past.

Michael is all one thinks of when they hear it they just think, a guy's name but it is from the Hebrew and it does not just label a person, but describes what attributes they duibber may hav prayed over the named. Michael means one who is like kGod…….Like when the Angel, Michael, came to help Daniel and was delayed by the adversary when He came to Daniel's aid.

Bethlehem is just the name of a town to so many,but if you break down what the words are that make up that name in Hebrew, Beit Lechem, you have house of Bread, and how beffitting is this since the Bread from Heaven first came to that House.

Jesus is not just a name, it has been transliterated twice from its original Yeshua, of if you have this accent, Yahwhua. It became Iesous in Greek then Yesu in Latin and came to English as Jesus.

The original, Yeshua, is composed of the words, The salvation of Yah(weh). Now when the Angel told Mary to call the babe Yeshua because He shall save His people, it tends to make all kinds of sense.

These descriptive titles for so many have evovled inot just nice sounding appellations for peple, but they mean oh so much more, and usually they bless all.

I will call you Benjamin……..that means favored son, colloquially son of the right hand...how d you like them pickles!? Good stuff. God bless you.

Get to a near death experience and I bet you all will get the name right
Name above all names, at the sound of it every knee shall bow and every tongue will confess Jesus is lord.
Go ahead worship his title/gift. Someday when your religious upbringing wears off or not, you will speak his name correctly

The Bible says Jesus was anointed with oil on two separate occasions by two different women (Matthew 26:6–7; Luke 7:37–38), but the most significant anointing came by way of the Holy Spirit (Acts 10:38). Jesus’ title of “Christ” means He is God’s Anointed One, the One who fulfills the Old Testament prophecies, the Chosen Savior who came to rescue sinners (1 Timothy 1:15), and the King of kings who is coming back again to set up His Kingdom on earth (Zechariah 14:9).

Some Christian groups including Messianic Judaism (Jews who accept Jesus Christ as the Messiah) believe Jesus' real name is Yeshua. Members of this and other religious movements have argued that we worship the wrong Savior if we do not call Christ by his Hebrew name, Yeshua. Strange as it may sound, some Christians believe using the name of Jesus is akin to calling on the pagan name of Zeus.

Jesus' Real Name
Indeed, Yeshua is the Hebrew name for Jesus. It means "Yahweh [the Lord] is Salvation." The English spelling of Yeshua is “Joshua.” However, when translated from Hebrew into the Greek language, in which the New Testament was written, the name Yeshua becomes Iēsous. The English spelling for Iēsous is “Jesus.”

This means Joshua and Jesus are the same names. One name is translated from Hebrew into English, the other from Greek into English. It is interesting to note, the names "Joshua" and "Isaiah" are essentially the same names as Yeshua in Hebrew. They mean "Savior" and "the salvation of the Lord."

actually, the proper name is the Lord Jesus Christ.

Lord ( devine ) Jesus ( human ) Christ ( Messiah).

a little learning never hurts.

Well if you know the name of Jesus then
actually, the proper name is the Lord Jesus Christ.

Lord ( devine ) Jesus ( human ) Christ ( Messiah).

a little learning never hurts.
Ever notice all the disciples were called by there given name, except when there was a conflict of names. Ever notice that Paul, Timothy, barnabas, and silas, all called by there given name
Ever notice that the people of NT always called Jesus by his given. They never called him Jesus Christ.
I guess they weren't as smart as modern people.

2nd Corinthians - chapter one v. 2 " grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

i'll be waiting on your apology for your mis-information.

Christ is the Greek translation of the word Messiah... So it is a Title Christians use.

It is declaring that Jesus was and is the Messiah.. If we declare Jesus the Messiah we will not be waiting for another to fulfill the role of Messiah..

Jesus is His name in the English language.. It has all the power needed..
