The name "Christian" originates from the Greek word "Christianos," which is derived from "Christ" (meaning "anointed") and "tian" (meaning "little"). Thus, the term "Christian" literally translates to "little anointed ones". The first recorded use of the word "Christian" is found in the Book of Acts in chapter 11, where the disciples were called Christians first at Antioch. The name was initially used to describe followers of Jesus Christ, who was referred to as the "messiah" (meaning "the anointed one"). The term "Christian" appears only three times in the Bible, but it has become the widely recognized name for those who follow Christianity, the world's largest religion with 2.8 billion adherents.
