To anoint means to pour oil or ointment onto a person or object in a ceremonial fashion. The Hebrew word for anoint first appears in Genesis 31:13, where it refers to Jacob pouring oil on the stone in Bethel (Genesis 28:18-19). When anointing Israel’s first King, the Prophet-Judge Samuel (1 Samuel 9:25) took Saul aside for instruction, then “took a vial of oil and poured it on his head, and kissed him and said: ‘Has not the Lord appointed you to be prince over His people Israel?’” (1 Samuel 10:1). For anointing the Tabernacle and its priests, a special oil was compounded and used for that sacred purpose.
Oil is symbolic of healing. When the Good Samaritan helped the man who had been attacked by robbers on the road from Jerusalem to Jericho, he poured oil and wine on his wounds. In the New Testament, anointing with oil accompanied by prayer for healing by local church elders is required when praying for the sick (James 5:14-15). Anointing with oil was also part of the Apostles’ healing ministry (Mark 6:12-13).
Oil is associated with God’s gift and the outpouring of God’s Spirit. The word for “anoint” is MASEIAI-I. The Hebrew word “Messiah,” translated “Christ” in Greek is from the same Hebrew root and really means “The Anointed One.”
