The Christ of Faith

For the followers of Jesus, he was the anointed one, the Messiah, the Christ.  They believed that Jesus the Christ implied that God was unique in Jesus of Nazareth, in his life, death and resurrection.  Jesus reconciled humanity to God and us with one another.  He redeemed mankind.  He rose from the dead.  Christians believe in Jesus Christ, the savior, who was not like everyone else, since he was the Christ of faith.  As later doctrinal statements will say, he was truly human and truly God, the son of the Father, filled with the Holy Spirit.
