Question:

What does Christ mean?

Answer:

Some believe that “Christ” is Yeshua’s second name or surname in the same way that we have a second
or family name. In actuality, “Christ” is a title in much the same way as “President” or “King.” This title is
taken from the Hebrew word “Mashiach” or “”Anointed One,” which was translated into the Greek   
“Christos” and later anglicized to “Christ.”  The actual English translation of Mashiach or “Anointed One” is
“Messiah.” Once again, using “Messiah” rather that “Christ,” is more accurate. (Examples of this title in the
Old Covenant are Dan.9:25, Ps. 2:2).  Also, Yeshua claimed this title of Messiah in the New Covenant (Mk.
14:61-62).
