What Do Christmas Means: –
The origin of mass in Christian sense is yet not entirely clear. The word mass has come from latin word missa. There are several types of research took place to know the exact meaning of missa. Some say’s it is a form of latin word mittere, which means “something that has been sent”. But the fact it is a feminine word and we cannot refer it to Jesus Christ.). Other researcher says it is a late form of Latin Missio meaning, “dismissal”. Yet there is another explanation in Hebrew which means “unleavened bread”.
The origin of the designation Christ is also not without interest. It comes from Greek Χριστός (Christós), meaning “anointed”. It is a translation of Hebrew מָשִׁיחַ māšîaḥ (“anointed”) that has been incorporated into the English language as “messiah”. Hence, “Christ” and “Messiah” mean essentially the same, the former originating in Ancient Greek and the latter in Classical Hebrew.
The Meaning Of Messiah is also known as “a leader regarded as the saviour of a particular country, group, or cause”.
Another word which comes across our way is “X” for Xmas. To be clear it is not an English word “ex”. It is an abbreviation of the Greek name of “Christ”, Χριστός, which starts with the Greek letter Chi. Abbreviating “Christ” as “X” can be traced many centuries back, with some written documents dated as early as 1100 AD.
