Jesus Christ literally means "Yeshua [God is salvation] the Messiah [or Annointed One of God]".

He Himself said that He was the Son of God.

But during His time on earth, He didn't call Himself, not did others call Him, "Jesus Christ"... they called Him Jesus, THE Christ (after they'd realized who He was, mostly after His death and resurrection).

So, "Christ" was not His last name, but His title, His identity.

Yes, I believe that He's the only Son of God. And I understand the controversy, which He allows, out of His honor for our free will. And I believe that He loves those who believe in and follow Him, as well as those who don't. He certainly loved me long before I met Him and began following Him. Looking back, I can see His influence in my life, His protection, and His guidance.

Without that, I'd be dead.

Shalom, Dena
