Christianity: Greek translation Χριστός (Christos) of the Hebrew word מָשִׁיחַ (Mashiah) for anointed. See also Messiah. Before Jesus, the Jews believed in an expected Savior (Isaiah 9:6-7) . The disciples of Jesus called him `the Christ` (e.g. Mark 8:29, Acts 5:42, 9:22). After the resurrection of Jesus, the name Christ became one of Jesus´ names (e.g. Romans 5:6, 8, 6:4, 9).
