The Meaning of Christ

The name Christ is actually a title. It is said to derive from the Greek word Christos, which, like the word Messiah (Moshiach in Hebrew), translates as “the anointed one”. From an Olin perspective, however, the designation Christ has many other meanings that can be seen to be directly related to Jesus.

Here is a partial list of possible Olin translations for Christ and how they relate to Jesus:

change surface related, liquid within; one that
  • The title Christ means "the annointed one".
change heat water within, reversing changes related that
  • Jesus is associated with baptism, which is seen as washing away past sins.
change surface related, movement within; reversing changes surfaces related
  • Some accused Jesus of violating the law. Jesus however insisted that he came to fulfill the law that was being violated by his accusers.
dead, movement within, reversing changes related that
  • Jesus cured people who were possessed by demons.
dead, movement within, reversing changes related that
  • Perhaps one of the greatest miracles performed by Jesus was bringing Lazarus back to life.

  • Legends suggest that drinking from the Holy Grail will make one immortal. Note that ch can be translated as "death" or as "containment surface related".
  • Many believe that the Grail was the cup that Jesus drank from during the last supper; it is also suggested that the Grail is a plate or cup that was used to catch the blood that dripped from Jesus' wounds when he was on the cross.
  • In the book Holy Blood, Holy Grail it is suggested that the word Grail actually refers to the bloodline of Jesus.

Chapter 4: Olin and The Bible

“The magical influence of language is a theme which reverberates throughout the literatures and legends of the world. Language, especially in its written form, is thought to contain special powers, which only the initiated are allowed to understand or control. The beliefs are often linked to a myth about the divine origins of language, but they extend beyond this, to influence religious activities of all kinds, and to reflect a widespread primitive superstition about objects and events that have a symbolic meaning and use.”

- David Crystal, The Cambridge Encyclopedia
of Language

As described by David Crystal above, many people throughout the world regard the language they speak as divinely inspired and, consequently, go to extreme lengths to preserve their language. Modern science, on the other hand, rejects such belief outright, ascribing it simply to the natural reaction of primitive minds to the seemingly mysterious nature of symbolic representation. Obviously, nothing can be divinely inspired if there is, in fact, nothing that is truly divine. Obviously, “magic” and symbolic representations have had an incestuous relationship with each other for thousands of years. Why then should one expect that language, one of the most sophisticated forms of symbolic representation, be any different? Why then should the rational thinker give even a second thought to the idea that such universal belief might be founded on anything else?

One answer can be found in the revelations made possible by Olin. Incredibly, Olin is able to reveal embedded knowledge concerning one’s religion that has long been hidden from view and of which even the practitioners and extremely faithful are completely unaware. And this revelation of hidden truth ultimately attests to the sacred nature of both Olin and of Olin-derived languages, and, in so doing, also thereby serves to justify such universal belief.
