Well, then, the "Greek" form of Mashiach does not know, consider or 
define, "Mashiach" properly.  Mashiach has certain functions to 
perform, it is not just a general idea.  Christ fulfilled none of 
them, therefore those who think Christ and Mashiach are not different 
concepts, either do not understand the concept of Mashiach, or would 
like to supplant the Jewish ideas of Mashiach, with their own ideas 
of Christ.
