The Name of Christ Reveals God

Jesus Christ could also be written Jesus the Christ.

Christ in Greek means “anointed.”

Jesus is the Messiah. In Hebrew, Messiah is “mashiach,” which also means anointed.

Christ in English also means “the Anointed One.”

The Anointing

Jesus revealed the anointing when He stood in the synagogue and spoke his first public words after His baptism and being tempted by the enemy (Luke 4:18-19).

He read a portion of Isaiah (61:1-2).

The anointing reveals God’s heart and love for the world.

The anointing is an eternal mystery. Yet, it is also simple. The anointing is the presence and the power of God.

The glorious results of the anointing are:

Good News of Salvation for the Poor, Humble and Afflicted

Healing for the Brokenhearted

Liberty to the Captives

Sight to the Blind

Liberty for those Oppressed

The Year of the Lord’s Favor
