"...and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins." (Matt 1)
Yeshua was Jesus' real name (in English, Joshua)..."Jesus" is the Greek translation. "Christ" is a title meaning, "anointed" or "chosen"...the Greek translation of "Messiah."
Joshua, the Anointed One
God's Chosen Savior
The name actually means "God Saves!" I heard a teacher talking about this once in reference to Palm Sunday...as Jesus was entering the city the people cried "Hosanna" which means "Oh, save us!" and Jesus himself was the answer to the cry. He still is.
"Oh, save us!"
