~ Jesus Christ (i.e., “Jesus Messiah”) Was Jesus’ Frequent Title In The New Testament ~
“Search the Scriptures—they testify of Me” — Jesus Christ (John 5:39).
“And beginning with Moses and with all the prophets, Jesus explained to them the things concerning Himself in all the Scriptures” (Luke 24:27).
The title “Christ,” which was applied almost interchangeably with the name “Jesus” by Christians from the New Testament era on, comes from the Greek word for “Messiah.”
One Specific Example
Peter said, “Therefore let all Israel be assured of this: God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ [Messiah]” (Acts 2:36 NIV).
