 Christ /ˈkraɪst/

From: Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913)

 Christ n.  The Anointed; an appellation given to Jesus, the Savior.  It is synonymous with the Hebrew Messiah.

From: WordNet (r) 2.0

      n 1: a teacher and prophet born in Bethlehem and active in
           Nazareth; his life and sermons form the basis for
           Christianity (circa 4 BC - AD 29) [syn: Jesus, Jesus
           of Nazareth, the Nazarene, Jesus Christ, Savior,
           Saviour, Good Shepherd, Redeemer, Deliverer]
      2: any expected deliverer [syn: messiah]

From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    anointed, the Greek translation of the Hebrew word rendered
    "Messiah" (q.v.), the official title of our Lord, occurring five
    hundred and fourteen times in the New Testament. It denotes that
    he was anointed or consecrated to his great redemptive work as
    Prophet, Priest, and King of his people. He is Jesus the Christ
    (Acts 17:3; 18:5; Matt. 22:42), the Anointed One. He is thus
    spoken of by Isaiah (61:1), and by Daniel (9:24-26), who styles
    him "Messiah the Prince."
      The Messiah is the same person as "the seed of the woman"
    (Gen. 3:15), "the seed of Abraham" (Gen. 22:18), the "Prophet
    like unto Moses" (Deut. 18:15), "the priest after the order of
    Melchizedek" (Ps. 110:4), "the rod out of the stem of Jesse"
    (Isa. 11:1, 10), the "Immanuel," the virgin's son (Isa. 7:14),
    "the branch of Jehovah" (Isa. 4:2), and "the messenger of the
    covenant" (Mal. 3:1). This is he "of whom Moses in the law and
    the prophets did write." The Old Testament Scripture is full of
    prophetic declarations regarding the Great Deliverer and the
    work he was to accomplish. Jesus the Christ is Jesus the Great
    Deliverer, the Anointed One, the Saviour of men. This name
    denotes that Jesus was divinely appointed, commissioned, and
    accredited as the Saviour of men (Heb. 5:4; Isa. 11:2-4; 49:6;
    John 5:37; Acts 2:22).
      To believe that "Jesus is the Christ" is to believe that he is
    the Anointed, the Messiah of the prophets, the Saviour sent of
    God, that he was, in a word, what he claimed to be. This is to
    believe the gospel, by the faith of which alone men can be
    brought unto God. That Jesus is the Christ is the testimony of
    God, and the faith of this constitutes a Christian (1 Cor. 12:3;
    1 John 5:1).
