Re: What does "Christ" mean?

You can twist and mistranslate the Greek word christos in anyway you wish but - "Christ" is the English translation of christos, or anointed.  Nothing more, nothing less.  The bible is full of anointed men.  Everyone has the Christ within themselves.


"CHRIST" is not a name, it's a title.  Long before "Jesus, who is called 'Christ,'" all kings of Israel held that title. 

King Saul [as addressed by prince David]: 1 Samuel 24:6 RSV ... my lord, the LORD's anointed  (MY LORD THE LORD'S CHRIST) LXX DOMINO MEO CHRISTO DOMINI (MY LORD, LORD CHRIST) Vulgate 

Then David says to his men, of Saul: ... he is the LORD's anointed.  KJV  (HE IS THE LORD'S CHRIST) LXX CHRISTUS DOMINI EST  (HE IS THE LORD'S CHRIST ) Vulgate

King David Psalm 18:50 RSV; 2 Samuel 23:1 KJV Great triumphs he gives to his king, and shows steadfast love to his anointed, to David and his descendants for ever. (HIS CHRIST DAVID) LXX [17:50] CHRISTO SUO DAVID (HIS CHRIST DAVID) Vulgate [17:51]

David the son of Jesse ... the man who was raised up on high, the anointed of the God of Jacob.....
