Anastasios means "one who shall rise again" or "of the Resurrection," referring to the church's most important feast day, Easter. Numerous saints (male and female) are named after this great event, but the name day most commonly celebrated is Easter.
Christ is the English term for the Greek word Χριστός ( Christós ), which literally means "The Anointed One." The word may be misunderstood by some as being the surname of Jesus due to the frequent juxtaposition of Jesus and Christ in the Christian Bible and other Christian writings. Often used as a more formal-sounding synonym for Jesus, the word is in fact a title, hence its common reciprocal use Christ Jesus, meaning The Anointed One, Jesus. Jesus and Christ refer to the same person whom Christians believe is God's son, who died on the cross to miraculously save his followers from their sins, and who rose from the dead on the third day after his death and later ascended into heaven where he sits at the "right hand of God the Father."
