The meaning of the name Jesus Christ


Frank writes: 

I don't know much about Greek, but I do have a couple of questions about the Greek name of Jesus if you could help me out. 1) What is the root word of Iesous- is it Ieso or is it Iesou or neither? 2) What makes it masculine gender- adding to the end us? or just s? Thank you for your time and your site.

Christ (Christos) is Greek, Jesus is Hebrew. Jesus means true saviour, Christ means annointed: the one who has and gives the Chrism (the Father's Spirit).Add a note!
