I don't know about Jesus, but "Christ" comes from some Greek for, er,
greased. Well "anointed" is probably a better word in this context,
but in the end, it means oil is applied to someone.

I thought that would help, but I cannot find a word for oil, the
closer is {tlhagh}, but it's "animal fat" not nice olive oil. So I
find myself stuck as well.

Maybe I will spend one of my points or two to ask for words for
oil/grease and "to grease"/apply oil.
In Italian the word for "ungere" is used both in culinary/mechanic
context, and in the sense of "anoint".
