In Judaism, the expected king of the line of David who will deliver the Jews from foreign bondage and restore Israel's golden age. The term used for the messiah in the Greek New Testament is (Christos), was applied to Jesus, who is accepted by Christians as the promised redeemer. “Anointed”, derived from Greek "to anoint", this was a name applied to Jesus by early Greek-speaking Christians. It is a translation of the Hebrew word (Mashiyach), commonly spelled in English, “Messiah”, which also means "anointed”, in the New Testament, and is applicable in its first sense to any one anointed with the holy oil.
