Christ the Lord

Christ the Lord is a phrase that is packed with meaning. The word “Christ” is the anglicized form of the Greek word meaning “anointed one” or “Messiah.” The word “Lord” has a wide range of uses. It can be a simple respectful “Sir” or a more formal, “Master.” But the New Testament also uses “Lord” of God. When the two words are combined in reference to Jesus (Yeshua‘), they remind us that He is both the promised Messiah and our God.
