Who Is Jesus Christ?

Posted on January 13, 2013 by ideacreamanuela

We have found the Messiah [or, Christ]. (John 1:41)


IN THE Hebrew and Greek languages, the words usually translated Messiah and Christ mean Anointed One. Jesus was the Anointed One, or the Chosen One of God the promised Leader. (Isaiah 55:4) The Scriptures contained prophecies concerning him, and the Jews at the time were in expectation of him.Luke 3:15. How do we know that Jesus really was Gods Chosen One? Well, consider what happened in the year 29 C.E. when Jesus was 30 years of age. He went to John the Baptizer to be baptized by him in the waters of the Jordan River. The Bible states: After being baptized Jesus immediately came up from the water; and, look! the heavens were opened up, and he saw descending like a dove Gods spirit coming upon him. Look! Also, there was a voice from the heavens that said: This is my Son, the beloved, whom I have approved. (Matthew 3:16, 17) After hearing those words of approval, could John have had any doubt that Jesus was Gods Chosen One? By pouring out His holy spirit on Jesus, Jehovah God anointed him, or appointed him, to be the King of His coming Kingdom. Thus, Jesus became Jesus Christ, or Jesus the Anointed One.
