What does the Christ mean after the name Jesus?

prefer my image of Jesus, As the Christ Conciousness which resides, hidden, waiting to be found, in our Heart Chakra.
I believe that Jesus was a man who found the Conciousness and became Christed. Christ is a title not a name. It means messenger. So Jesus became the messenger of God.
God is also a title meaning everything with no exclusions is a part of God.
I know that a lot of you will not understand what I say, but thats your problem, not mine.

I basically understand what you have said. Ive heard this type of thing from a number of individuals in the New Age movement. “Christ Consciousness” is just another way to claim that Jesus was just a good guy. He wasn’t just a good guy. He was the savior, God in the flesh and the only way to the Father. It is only through the blood of Jesus Christ that we may have the free gift of salvation and entrance into Heaven.

Christ means Messiah, the Anointed and I see him as God made Man.

So, you figure you can stroll up into God’s Mansion, put your feet up on His golden coffee table, and tell Him…”I prefer to have things the way I like them”…and He, of course, will clap His hands, and immediately, everything will be remade to your order?? I’d ask you to tell us how it works out for you, but I doubt you’ll want to do much talking about it, or will be able to, for that matter. But that is your problem, not mine. I or some of these other Christians here could maybe help you with it…but your… Read more »

“Jesus” is a hidden name, “Christ” is a revealed name. For this reason “Jesus” is not particular to any language; rather he is always called by the name “Jesus”. While as for “Christ”, in Syriac it is “Messiah”, in Greek it is “Christ”. Certainly all the others have it according to their own language. “The Nazarene” is he who reveals what is hidden. Christ has everything in himself, whether man, or angel, or mystery, and the Father.

Christ does not mean “Messenger” !

“Christ” comes from the Greek, as “Messiah” is from the Hebrew. They both mean “Anointed Savior Deliverer” !

Jesus is God, The Son, Savior Deliverer of all Men, He didn’t “find” anything, He gave up everything. He Became the likeness of Man, and became Sin, so we can become the Righteousness of God in Him !

The word “Christ” comes from the Greek translation of the Hebrew Messiah, which means “anointed.”

It became the name proper to Jesus because he accomplished perfectly the divine mission of priest, prophet, and King, signified by his anointing as Messiah, “Christ.”

With love in Christ.

This title from the Greek Khri·stos”² is equivalent to the Hebrew Ma·shi”²ach, “Messiah; Anointed One.” “Christ” is not a mere appellative added to distinguish the Lord Jesus from others of the same name; it is an official title. The coming of the Christ, the one whom Jehovah would anoint with his spirit to be the Messianic King, had been foretold centuries before Jesus’ birth. However, at his birth, Jesus was not yet the Anointed One or Christ. In foretelling his birth, the angel instructed Joseph: “You must call his name Jesus.” But when the shepherds near Bethlehem were given the… Read more »

Apostle means messenger. Christ is Greek for ‘anointed one’. This is because the Messiah, which is the Jewish form of Christ, is called the anointed one in various prophetic passages in the Old Testament. Anointed with the Holy Spirit to preach, heal all the sick, cast out evil spirits. Obviously these things have Jewish and Christian meanings, whereas you are trying to fit it into some kind of hindu comprehension. So Jesus claimed He was more than a man, but God incarnated in human form, coming to Earth to provide an atonement for our sins, and to show us what… Read more »

Christ means the anointed one, the messiah. the eternal and true King of the universe.

He is God from all eternity and became man by the Blessed Virgin, He suffered and died, rose from the dead and was glorified.

He will come again on the skies and the dead will rise to His judgment.

actually that is your problem not ours.
But us Christians will help you to understand the meaning of
the Christ after Jesus means” the son of the living God.”..

Christians means christ is in us, or that we are of Christ’s

No it doesn’t mean messenger it means Anointed One, as in to anoint a king. Several times Jesus was anointed in the scriptures.

We cannot be Christ. We want to be like Christ, but not Christ himself. Compare this to Buddhism, where you want to be Buddha/awakened. The eastern religions want to become the deity, to become Buddha, etc. The western religions want to be close to the deity, close to Christ, close to Muhammad, close to the Bible or the Quran, but not actually BE it.

You’re right ….alot won’t understand what you say.
I’m one of them.
You’re weakest comment is “prefer my image.”
You don’t decide how Jesus, or God, wishes to be.
They can decide for themselves.
They tell us, we don’t tell them.
