The woman said to him, “I know that Messiah is coming (he who is called Christ). When he comes, he will tell us all things.” Jesus said to her, “I who speak to you am he.” (John 4:25-26)
Our focus today is on Jesus as Messiah. The word 'Christ' and the word 'Messiah' have the same meaning which is why we call Him 'Jesus Christ.' The title "Christ" comes from the Greek word that means "anointed one," and is basically a synonym for the Hebrew-based word “Messiah.”
Nobody knew exactly when the Messiah was going to come or what he would be like. Many thought he would be a military king like King David, and not the humble servant that He was.
Jesus is our Savior and He alone has the power to save us. He took it upon Himself to be crucified so that we could receive the gift of salvation and eternal life.
