STRONGS NT 5547: χριστ??

χριστ??, χριστη, χριστ?ν (χρ?ω), the Sept. for ????????, anointed: ? ?ερε?? ? χριστ??, Leviticus 4:5; Leviticus 6:22; ο? χριστοι ?ερε??, 2 Macc. 1:10; the patriarchs are called, substantively, ο? χριστοι Θεο?, Psalm 104:15 (); the singular ? χριστ?? το? κυρ?ου (?????? ????????) king of Israel (see χρ?σμα), 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 (); 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 ? χριστ?? (????????, Chaldean ?????????) 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. υ??? το? ?νθρ?που, 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), ? χριστ??: 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 (); ; John 1:20, 25 ( () Rec.); Rec.; ; Acts 2:30 Rec., ; ; 1 John 2:22; 1 John 5:1; ? χριστ?? κυρ?ου or το?

2. It is added, as an appellative (`Messiah', 'anointed'), to the proper name ?ησο?? a. ?ησο?? ? χριστ??, Jesus the Christ (`Messiah'): Acts 5:42 R G; (R G); 1 Corinthians 3:11 Rec.; 1 John 5:6 (R G L); ?ησο?? ? λεγ?μενο? χριστ??, who they say is the Messiah ((cf.

b. below)), Matthew 27:22; without the article ?ησο?? Χριστ??, 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 χριστ?? as a proper name (see b. below)); ?

Χριστ?? 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.; (here L omits; Tr brackets the article); ; 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 (), ; ; Philippians 1:10, 13, 19-21, 23; Philippians 2:16; Colossians 2:5, 8; Hebrews 3:6, and often. ?ησο??

a. above)), Matthew 1:16. on the phrases Χριστ?, Χριστ? ?ησο?, see , I. 6 b., p. 211b (cf. Winer's Grammar, § 20, 2 a.). Χριστ?? and ?ησο?? Χριστ?? τισ?ν, preached among, 2 Corinthians 1:19; Colossians 1:21 (others (so R. V.) would take here internally (as in the following examples), within; cf. , I. 2); Χριστ?? τισ?ν 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.
