    Jesus' name means "the Anointed". This is a study guide to help further understand the significance of the olive oil as a Christian. Holy Anointing OilAnd thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel, saying, This shall be an holy anointing oil unto me throughout your generations. Exodus 30:31Olive oil in God's Word was used for:An olive leaf was first carried by the dove to the arkOlive oil was used to anoint for healingOlive oil was used to anoint spiritual leaders, priestsOlive oil was used to represent prosperityOlive oil was used to anoint the rock Jacob slept upon in which the Lord blessed his seedOlive oil was used to light the tabernacleOlive oil was used to represent adoration, dedication to the LordOlive oil was used as a symbol of the Christian peopleChrist's name means "Christos" or "the anointed"Olive oil is the truth in the lamps of the 10 virgins in that last hourAt the last trump, when Christ returns his feet will touch the mount of OlivesAs we know 'anoint' means:mashach ^4886^, "to smear with oil or paint, anoint." This verb, which appears 69 times in biblical Hebrew, has cognates in Ugaritic, Akkadian, Aramaic, and Arabic. The objects of this verb are people, sacrificial victims, and objects of worship. Aaron and his sons are the objects of this verb in Exodus. 30:30Jesus is the anointed one:Acts 10:3838 How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.Here is the verse Exodus 30:30 with some translation:And thou shalt anoint (4886 mashach (maw-shakh'); a primitive root; to rub with oil, i.e. to anoint; by implication, to consecrate; also to paint: KJV-- anoint, paint.) Aaron (75 'Aharown (a-har-one'); of uncertain derivation; Aharon, the brother of Moses: KJV-- Aaron.and his sons, (121 ben (bane); from 1129; a son (as a builder of the family name), in the widest sense )and consecrate ( 6942 qadash (kaw-dash'); a primitive root; to be (causatively, make, pronounce or observe as) clean (ceremonially or morally): sanctify)them, that they may minister unto me in the priest's office. (3547 kahan (kaw-han'); a primitive root, apparently meaning to mediate in religious services; to officiate as a priest; figuratively, to put on regalia)This olive oil mentioned above was used for use in the anointing of the tabernacle, the alter, the ark of the covenant, the candlesticks, the congregation (appointed feasts), and as it mentioned above in the commentary 'Aaron and his sons' as the priesthood to be carried through the generations making them 'most holy' and this 'holy anointing oil'.Here is another example of this holy oil being used for the priesthood:Leviticus 21:10-24 And he that is the high priest among his brethren, upon whose head the anointing oil was poured, and that is consecrated to put on the garments, shall not uncover his head, nor rend his clothes;11 Neither shall he go in to any dead body, nor defile himself for his father, or for his mother;12 Neither shall he go out of the sanctuary, nor profane the sanctuary of his God; for the crown of the anointing oil of his God is upon him: I am the LORD.And here are some other verse given where an anointing was performed throughthe generations:Mark 6:11-56 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them. Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment, than for that city.12 And they went out, and preached that men should repent.13 And they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed them.Luke 4:1818 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,2 Corinthians 1:2121 Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God;Psalms 89:2020 I have found David my servant; with my holy oil have I anointed him:1 Chronicles 11:33 Therefore came all the elders of Israel to the king to Hebron; and David made a covenant with them in Hebron before the LORD; and they anointed David king over Israel, according to the word of the LORD by Samuel.I King 1:3939 And Zadok the priest took an horn of oil out of the tabernacle, and anointed Solomon.
