What does that mean?
In the Hebrew Scriptures, beginning with the Torah (Taurat), we find many references to a coming Messiah. The word Messiah just means ‘an anointed One’, or in the Greek language ‘Christ’.
Jesus (Isa), during His lifetime, spoke of Himself as this promised Messiah, and He became known as Jesus Christ (Isa Masih).
Twice at His trial, the Roman governor Pilate refers to Jesus as one “which is called Christ”.
But, why would people give Jesus this title? To find out, we need to look back at the specific prophesies that were given by God in the Hebrew Scriptures.
