Jesus Christ

Christ is used as a title, hence its common reciprocal use Christ Jesus, meaning "The Messiah Jesus". Followers of Jesus became known as Christians (as in Acts 11:26) because they believe Jesus to be the messiah (Christos) prophesied in the Hebrew Bible - therefore they often call him Jesus Christ, meaning Jesus the Christos. Jesus has never been accepted by most Jews as their Messiah.[4] Many Christians, however, await the Second Coming of Christ when they believe he will fulfill the rest of the Christian Messianic prophecy. The area of Christian theology which is primarily concerned with the nature and person of Jesus Christ as recorded in the Canonical gospels and the letters of the New Testament[5] is known as Christology.
