Strong’s Definitions [?](Strong’s Definitions Legend)
Χριστός Christós, khris-tos'; from G5548; anointed, i.e. the Messiah, an epithet of Jesus:—Christ.
χριστός, χριστη, χριστόν (χρίω), the Sept. for מָשִׁיחַ, anointed: ἱερεύς χριστός, Leviticus 4:5; Leviticus 6:22; οἱ χριστοι ἱερεῖς, 2 Macc. 1:10; the patriarchs are called, substantively, οἱ χριστοι Θεοῦ, Psalm 104:15 (Ps. 105:15); the singular χριστός τοῦ κυρίου (יְהוָה מְשִׁיחַ) king of Israel (see χρῖσμα), as 1 Samuel 2:10, 35; (1 Samuel 24:11; 1 Samuel 26:9, 11, 23); 2 Samuel 1:14; Psalm 2:2; Psalm 17:51 (Ps. 18:51); Habakkuk 3:13; (2 Chronicles 22:7); also of a foreign king, Cyrus, as sent of God, Isaiah 45:1; of the coming king whom the Jews expected to be the saviour of their nation and the author of their highest felicity: the name χριστός (מָשִׁיחַ, Chaldean מְשִׁיחָא) is not found in the O. T. but is first used of him in the Book of Enoch 48, 10 (cf. Schodde's note); 52, 4 (for the arguments by which some have attempted to prove that the section containing these passages is of Christian origin are not convincing (cf. υἱός τοῦ ἀνθρώπου, 2 and references)), after Psalm 2:2 referred to the Messiah; (cf. Psalms of Solomon 17:36 Psalm 18:6, 8). Cf. Keim, ii., 549 (English translation, 4:263f; Westcott 'Additional Note' on 1 John 5:1. On the general subject see Schürer, Neutest. Zeitgesch. § 29.) In the N. T. it is used:
1. of the Messiah, viewed in his generic aspects (the word, that is to say, being used as an appellative rather than a proper name), χριστός: Matthew 2:4; Matthew 16:16; Matthew 23:10; Matthew 24:5, 23; Matthew 26:63; Mark 8:29; Mark 12:35; Mark 13:21; Mark 14:61; Luke 3:15; Luke 4:41; Luke 20:41; Luke 22:67 (Luke 22:66); Luke 23:39; 24:26,46; John 1:20, 25 (John 1:41 (John 1:42) Rec.); John 3:28; 4:29; 6:69 Rec.; John 7:26, 31,41; 11:27; 12:34; 20:31; Acts 2:30 Rec., Acts 2:31; Acts 3:18; 8:5; 9:22; 17:3a; 18:5,28; 26:23; 1 John 2:22; 1 John 5:1; χριστός κυρίου or τοῦ Θεοῦ, Luke 2:26; Luke 9:20; Acts 4:26; without the article, Luke 2:11; Luke 23:2; John 1:41 (John 1:42) L T Tr WH; John 9:22; Acts 2:36; χριστός, βασιλεύς τοῦ Ἰσραήλ, Mark 15:32; χριστός so used as to refer to Jesus, Revelation 20:4, 6; with τοῦ Θεοῦ added, Revelation 11:15; Revelation 12:10.
2. It is added, as an appellative (`Messiah', 'anointed'), to the proper name Ἰησοῦς
a. Ἰησοῦς χριστός, Jesus the Christ (`Messiah'): Acts 5:42 R G; Acts 9:34 (R G); 1 Corinthians 3:11 Rec.; 1 John 5:6 (R G L); Ἰησοῦς λεγόμενος χριστός, who they say is the Messiah ((cf. b. below)), Matthew 27:22; without the article Ἰησοῦς Χριστός, Jesus as Christ or Messiah, John 17:3; 1 John 4:2; 2 John 1:7 (but in all three examples it seems better to take χριστός as a proper name (see b. below)); Χριστός Ἰησοῦς, the Christ (Messiah) who is Jesus, (Matthew 1:18 WH marginal reading (see b. below)); Acts 5:42 L T Tr WH (R. V. Jesus as the Christ); Acts 19:4 Rec.
b. Χριστός is a proper name (cf. Winers Grammar, § 18, 9 N. 1; (as respects the use of a large or a small initial letter the critical editions vary: Tdf. seems to use the capital initial in all cases; Treg. is inconsistent (using a small letter, for instance, in all the examples under 1 above, except Luke 22:67 and John 4:29; in Matthew 1:1 a capital in Mark 1:1 a small letter, etc.); WH have adopted the principle of using a capital when the article is absent and avoiding it when the article is present (1 Pet. being intentionally excepted; the small letter being retained also in such examples as Luke 2:11; Luke 23:2; Acts 2:36, etc.); see WH. Introductory § 415])]): Matthew 1:17; Matthew 11:2; Romans 1:16 Rec.; Romans 7:4; 9:5; 14:18 (here L omits; Tr brackets the article); Rom. 15:19; 1 Corinthians 1:6, etc. without the article, Mark 9:41; Romans 6:4; Romans 8:9, 17; 1 Corinthians 1:12; Galatians 2:16f, 19 (Galatians 2:20), Galatians 2:21; Galatians 3:27; Philippians 1:10, 13, 19-21, 23; Philippians 2:16; Colossians 2:5, 8; Hebrews 3:6, and often. Ἰησοῦς Χριστός, Matthew 1:1, 18 (here Tr omits Ἰησοῦς; WH text brackets Ἰησοῦς; others have, Ἰησοῦς Χριστός which is unique; see WH's Appendix at the passage); Mark 1:1; John 1:17; Acts 2:38; Acts 3:6; Acts 4:10; Acts 8:12; (Acts 9:34 L T Tr WH); Acts 10:36; 11:17; 15:26; 16:18,31 (R G); Acts 20:21 (here L WH text omit; Tr brackets Χριστόν); Acts 28:31 (Tdf. omits Χριστόν); Romans 1:1 (R G WH text (see below)), Romans 1:6,8; Romans 2:16 (R G Tr text WH marginal reading (see below)); 1 Corinthians 1:7-9; 1 Corinthians 3:11 (G T Tr WH (Rec.

Ἰησοῦς λεγόμενος Χριστός, surnamed 'Christ' ((cf. a. above)), Matthew 1:16. on the phrases ἐν Χριστῷ, ἐν Χριστῷ Ἰησοῦ, see ἐν, I. 6 b., p. 211b (cf. Winer's Grammar, § 20, 2 a.). Χριστός and Ἰησοῦς Χριστός ἐν τισίν, preached among, 2 Corinthians 1:19; Colossians 1:21 (others (so R. V.) would take ἐν here internally (as in the following examples), within; cf. ἐν, I. 2); Χριστός ἐν τισίν is used of the person of Christ, who by his holy power and Spirit lives in the souls of his followers, and so moulds their characters that they bear his likeness, Romans 8:10 (cf. 9); 2 Corinthians 13:5; Galatians 2:20; Ephesians 3:17; a mind conformed to the mind of Christ, Galatians 4:19.
