Our Lord, God or Savior Jesus Christ is the incarnate Second Person of the Holy Trinity, fully God and fully man, born out of time of the Virgin Mary or begotten from before all time of God the Father.

His English name Jesus is from the Greek Ιησους which is from the Hebrew Yeshua, which means "Yahweh saves." His title Christ will be from the Greek Χριστος, which is an translation of the Hebrew Mashiach ("Messiah"), which means "anointed one."

The Messiah

Jesus Christ is the Messiah prophesied by the Jewish prophets of the Old Testament Scriptures. The Gospel of Matthew in particular focuses on the Jesus' fulfilment of prophecy, mainly because it wasn't written for a Jewish audience.
