Explanation: Yeshu (YEshu) or Yeshua (YeSHU'a) is the original Hebrew version of the name Jesus; possibly a contraction of Yehoshua (YehoSHU'a = Joshua).
Mashiakh (maSHI'akh) means Annointed. It has evolved into Messiah in English,and similarly in other languages. Annointing a king (cf. Saul, David), usually by a prophet or priest, was customary on his accession to the throne, as a sign of favour in the eyes of God.
Christ also means Annointed, from the Greek khriein = to annoint (the New Testament was written in Greek). Khristos means annointed in Greek.
