Westminster Larger Catechism in modern English question number forty-two:

Q. 42. Why was our Mediator called Christ?

A. Our Mediator was called Christ because He was anointed with the Holy Spirit without limit. Thus, He was set apart and fully equipped with all authority and ability to execute the offices of prophet, priest, and king of His church—both in his state of humiliation and exaltation.
