The Christ

(Excerpt from Make Your Life Worthwhile by Emmet Fox page 68,
Key Words in the Bible: 8-Christ)

The word "Christ" is not a proper name. It is a title. it is a Greek word meaning anointed or
consecrated. It corresponds somewhat to the Hebrew term Messiah, and to the oriental word

Jesus was the personal name given to our Lord by his parents. The word, as we have it, is Greek
and is a translation of the Hebrew Joshua, which means, literally. "God is salvation" -that is to say,
the realization of God is our salvation, or what I call the Golden Key.

Thus we speak of the Christ. The Christ may be defined as the spiritual Truth about any person,
situation, or thing.

When you realize the spiritual Truth about any problem you are lifting up the Christ in consciousness
and the healing follows. Thus the Christ is always the healing Christ.

Jesus demonstrated the Christ in his own person and life to a greater extent than any other individual
who has ever lived on this earth; and because the work that he did in his crucifixion and resurrection
has made it possible for us to reach spiritual heights that would otherwise have been quite out of our
reach, he is justly termed the Messiah or Savior of the world. The realization of the Christ heals,
irrespective of any conditions or limitation that may seem to stand in the way.

"And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me." John 12:32
