This name derives from the Ancient Greek “khrī́ō (χρῑ́ω) khrīstós (χρῑστός) Christós (Χριστός)” meaning “anointed, to anoint oneself, usually with olive oil”. a translation of the Hebrew (Māšîaḥ), used as a title for Jesus in the New Testament. In common usage, "Christ" is generally treated as synonymous with Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus came to be called "Jesus Christ", meaning "Jesus the Christós". The area of Christian theology called Christology is primarily concerned with the nature and person of Jesus Christ as recorded in the canonical gospels and the letters of the New Testament. The English form of Christ was written without the “h” before 1500.
