What does the Bible tell us about Jesus Christ?
Jesus Christ is the name and the title of the son of God. Jesus is called the son of God, because Jesus was created by Jehovah God. Jesus is his name (in the English language). Jesus is also called Jesus in the German language. In the Greek language Jesus corresponds to the Greek name “, I·e·sousʹ. And in the Hebrew language Jesus corresponds to the Hebrew name Jeshua (in the short form). And to the Hebrew name Jehoshua (in Fuller form). This Hebrew name means (in English) “Jehovah Is Salvation.”The name Jesus was a common name in the time, when Jesus was on earth. This is the reason, why persons often added further identification, saying, “Jesus the Nazarene.” (see in the Bible Mark 10:47 and in Acts 2:22.
Christ is a title from Jesus
The title from Jesus, “Christ” is from the Greek Khri·stosʹ. This is the equivalent of the Hebrew Ma·shiʹach (Messiah). This means (in English): “Anointed One”. Jesus has this title, because he was anointed from Jehovah God. Jesus was anointed to be the King of God’s Kingdom. Jesus had the title Christ from the time of his anointing. Jesus Christ was anointed at his baptism on earth.
When the holy spirit (this means God’s active force) was coming upon Jesus, when Jesus Christ was baptized. This was the moment, when Jesus became the Messiah, or Christ, the Anointed One of Jehovah God.

(Psalm 22:18) They divide my garments among themselves, And they cast lots for my clothing.
(John 19:23, 24) Now when the soldiers had nailed Jesus to the stake, they took his outer garments and divided them into four parts, one for each soldier, and they also took the inner garment. But the inner garment was without a seam, being woven from top to bottom. 24 So they said to one another: “Let us not tear it, but let us cast lots over it to decide whose it will be.” This was to fulfill the scripture: “They divided my garments among themselves, and they cast lots for my clothing.” So the soldiers actually did these things.
