We know Jesus most commonly referred to as Jesus Christ. So is Christ His Last Name? Ever wondered as to what the Last Name of Jesus is?
What is the Last Name of Jesus?
Since the times of Jesus was most probably a Patriarchical society, it would be safe to assume that Jesus would have been called Jesus Joseph. However, should there have been a women’s liberation equality rights movement, then his name may have been recorded as Jesus Joseph-Mary (less likely) and being born a Jew from the line of David, it is absolutely possible that Jesus’ name in his birth certificate (if one existed) was recorded as Jesus ben Joseph (Jesus the son of Joseph).
Actually, it does not matter what the last name of Jesus was. What matters most is whether you and I know Jesus as the Christ.
Christ means Messiah, the Savior. Matt 1:21 records that the earthly parents of Jesus (Joseph & Mary) were commission by God, told by God’s angel, that they were to call the child that was to be born – Jesus for He shall save his people from their sins. This would be the Messiah (the Christ). So in a sense, it was God who gave Jesus, Christ as his last name (title).
The Bible records in the book of Isaiah 9:6 – For unto us a child is born, unto us a Son is given. Child is born refers to the humanity of Jesus; a Son is given refers to the divinity of Jesus.
For God so loved the world that He GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, that whosoever believes in Him (in Jesus) shall not perish (in hell) but have everlasting life (in heaven). – John 3:16
Do you know Him as Christ, your Messiah, your Savior? To know Jesus as Christ is to Believe in Him as the son of God given unto the salvation of mankind from hell and acceptance into heaven to reign with God.
