Richard Elton converted to Christianity from atheism more than thirty years ago. He led a home fellowship for decades and now is active in prison ministry. Furthermore, he recently made a trip to Israel with another of our guests, John Cortright, and therefore he brings a fresh Hebraic perspective to our topic for this show–Jesus the Messiah.

Though many may not realize it, Christ is not Jesus’ last name. Rather, the word simply means Messiah–one who is anointed to rule God’s people on his behalf. From the birth narratives to his triumphal entry and beyond, the humble recognized that Jesus was the Messiah. But, sadly, today many of us who confess the words, “Jesus is the Christ,” do not even know what they mean. Download this show to learn the biblical meaning of Jesus as Messiah.
