In the same way the He was not called Jesus, he was never called Jesus CHRIST. Tradition has used this name for years but it can be misleading.
Surnames and first names were generally unknown at Jesus' (Yeshua's) time. One name was probably enough for an offspring who would not stray far from where he was born. But if it was necessary to differentiate several Yeshuas, the epithet "Son of ..." would usually suffice.
"Christ" is the Latin/Greek version of the Hebrew word "messiah".
The Christian Faith sees the dozens messianic of prophecies in the Old Testament as being fulfilled in the birth, life, work, death and resurrection of Yeshua ben Yusuf.
And it starts at CHRISTmas .
