The Doctrine Of Christ
Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me.
Christ is the English term for the Greek: Χριστός (Khristós) meaning “the anointed one”. It is a translation of the Hebrew מָשִׁיחַ (Māšîaḥ), usually transliterated into English as Messiah.
The word is used as a title, hence its common reciprocal use Christ Jesus, meaning “The Messiah Jesus” or that Jesus is the Christ or the Messiah prophesied in the Old Testament – therefore they called him Jesus Christ, meaning Jesus is “the anointed one“. Followers of Jesus today are known as Christians we say that we believe Jesus was/is the Christ or Messiah prophesied in the Old Testament, yet we are told to believe and teach Jesus is God. God anoints and God is never called the anointed. (“How God anointed Jesus” Acts 10:38 also Hebrews 1:9)
The scriptures many have relied on fall in line with a number of passages containing words or phrases usually having multiple meanings. One very common conjecture made with many of the Greek written scriptures (what we call the New Testament) is that our conclusions (Jesus is God) are always indirectly drawn conclusions. The confusion usually lies between distinguishing scriptures in reference to God directly apart from those which are in reference to attributes God gave Jesus of himself.
What Is The Doctrine Of Christ?
(John 7:16-17) “Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me. 17 If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.” (See also: John 8:26-29, 12:49-50, 14:23-24, 31, 17:8)
(John 8:26-29) “I have many things to say and to judge of you: but he that sent me is true; and I speak to the world those things which I have heard of him. 27 They understood not that he spake to them of the Father. 28 Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things. 29 And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.
(John 12:49-50) “For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. 50 And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.”
(John 14:23-24) “Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. 24 He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me.”
(John 14:31) “But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence.”
(John 17:11) And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.
