If you’ve been reading the posts of the last several days you might have recognized that “The Anointed Joshua” in today’s title is just another of the many ways of saying “Jesus Christ.”
To briefly review:
- “Jesus” is synonymous with “Joshua.”
- “Christ” is synonymous with “Messiah” which is synonymous with “Anointed.”
- The word order doesn’t matter. “Jesus Christ” is synonymous with “Christ Jesus.”
- The inclusion of “the” doesn’t matter. “The Christ” is synonymous with “Christ.”
- “Anointed” is synonymous with “Anointed One.”
These things being the case, consider then that every expression below is unique but synonymous with the others. Each can draw out a shade of meaning about our wonderful Lord and Savior. It’s pleasant and beneficial just to meditate on His name, in all its forms.
Jesus the Anointed
Jesus the Anointed One
Joshua the Anointed
Joshua the Anointed One
Jesus the Messiah
Joshua the Messiah
Jesus the Christ
Joshua the Christ
The Messiah Jesus
The Anointed Jesus
The Anointed One Jesus
The Anointed Joshua (this is the one you see in the title to today’s post)
The Anointed One Joshua
The Messiah Joshua
All these renditions speak of our God Jesus Christ.
How wonderful that our Lord’s name can be rendered in such a variety of ways that all are rooted in the meanings of Jesus and Christ. Meditate on His name and let the reality of His presence take root in your mind.
By the way, why do people curse with His name…as if He is not in the room?
Let us rather honor His name, for He is worthy!
