A title commonly used of God in the Old Testament, but commonly appropriated to Christ in the New Testament. In the Old Testament Greek version and those dependent on it, as the Vulgate in this matter, it is used in place of Jahweh (Jehovah), the proper name of God among the Israelites. The way Saint Paul and other New Testament writers use the title is one of the proofs that they regarded Christ as God. ln Acts 10:48, He is referred to as the Lord Jesus Christ.
