Jesus, the Christ, a created individual, is the second greatest Personage of the universe. Jehovah God and Jesus together constitute the Superior Authorities (Romans 13:1) toward all creation. He was formed countless millenniums ago as the first and the only direct creation by His Father, Jehovah, and, because of His proved, faultless integrity, was appointed by Jehovah as His Vindicator and the Chief Agent of life toward mankind. Christ, one of His titles, means "The Messiah", "The Anointed." Jesus or Jeshua is the shortened form of the Hebrew Jehoshua, meaning "Jehovah is the Savior".
