The Meaning of “Satan” & “Christ”

Posted by Remy on April 22, 2009

Satan is not originally a proper name, but a Hebrew word that means “the accuser, the adversary, one who plots against another.”

Similarly Christ isn’t a proper name, but a title. It comes from the Greek “kristos” meaning “the anointed one” and was used to translate the Hebrew word “mashiah”, from which we get “messiah”.
