What Is the Christ?

“But Saul all the more was growing strong, and was confounding the Jews who were dwelling in Damascus, proving that this Jesus is the Christ” (Acts 9:22 EMTV).

“For he was powerfully refuting the Jews publicly, demonstrating by the Scriptures that Jesus was the Messiah” (Acts 18:28 EMTV).

Yes, it is Who is the Christ, and the answer is, of course, “the Lord Jesus.” However, we can also ask What is the Christ? The answer is exciting.
