ChristosDownloadable Video - 2000
In Christianity, Jesus is Jesus Christ. In the gospels Jesus is called "Christ", the Greek translation of the Hebrew word for "messiah" or "anointed by God". Was the biblical conception of the messiah political or religious? Was it possible to be a prophet without being king? During his lifetime did Jesus claim to be the messiah of Israel? Was it the royal aspect of this pretension which brought about his condemnation? Why and by whom? By the Jews who thought it was blasphemous and dangerous for their people? Or by the Romans who feared the arrival of a liberating king of Israel? Did Jesus become "Christos" or "Jesus Christ" only after his death? How many years or centuries separate Jesus the Nazarene from Jesus Christ?
