The name and title of the Son of God from the time
of his anointing while on earth.
The name Jesus (Gr., I·e·sous´) corresponds to the Hebrew
name Jeshua (or, in fuller form, Jehoshua), meaning "Jehovah Is
Salvation." The name itself was not unusual, many men being so named
in that period. For this reason persons often added further
identification, saying, "Jesus the Nazarene." (Mr 10:47;
Christ is from the Greek Khri·stos´, the equivalent of the
Hebrew Ma·shi´ach (Messiah), and means "Anointed One."
Whereas the expression "anointed one" was properly applied to others
before Jesus, such as Moses, Aaron, and David (Heb 11:24-26;
2Sa 22:51), the position, office, or service to which these
were anointed only prefigured the superior position, office, and
service of Jesus Christ. Jesus is therefore preeminently and
uniquely "the Christ, the Son of the living God."—Mt 16:16; see

the son of the daughter of Phar´aoh, 25 choosing
to be ill-treated with the people of God rather than to have the
temporary enjoyment of sin, 26 because he esteemed
the reproach of the Christ as riches greater than the treasures of
Egypt; for he looked intently toward the payment of the reward.

upon the people, then he must present for his sin that he has
committed a sound young bull to Jehovah as a sin offering.
