i hope this question isnt to pathetic but... im wondering if the word Christ is Jesus's surname? i have a feeling its not because as far as i can tell they didnt really use surnames in the bible, so then my question is... where did the word christ come from?

Excellent Question.

Im so sorry i did not see this.

Christ means anointed in greek. In the past the kings of Israel were anointed with olive oil when they were announced as kings. Jesus is the Christ because he is the King of Kings that God annointed with his Holy Spirit and who will come again to rule over the nations.

So to say "jesus the Christ" or "jesus Christ" is to say "Jesus the Annointed"

It is not what is in front of you.....
It is not what lays behind you....
But what is IN you that matters....
