What Does Anointing Oil Represent In The Bible?
When the Scriptures are translated into English some of the nuances of language gets lost. That is the case with the word "anointing." The word 'anoint' in Hebrew is mãsah and it properly means "to rub or stroke with the hand" (Lev. 2:4). Literally, they would rub or smear the head or body with oil.
The objects of worship however were anointed by "sprinkling" nzh (Lev. 8:11). And the high priest was anointed at his installation by pouring, yãsaq, the holy oil on his head (Lev. 8:12). The effects of all this anointing was to make them holy-to consecrate to the Lord. But it also confers on the recipient a particular character, the quality of 'being holy' that could be transmitted to others through contact. It created a special intimate relationship between the person and God. To be thus anointed with oil was a sign of great favor-of blessing and grace in both the individual and the people's lives. Moses was directed to anoint Aaron and his sons as a sign that they had been set apart in God's service. They were washed, and specially arraigned with sacred vestments of finest linen that were made with purple, blue and gold threads. And before all the people, they were anointed with God's holy oil, ordained and consecrated as God's chosen priests.
Anointing for the Kings Was a Very Significant Ritual for the Whole People of God
Literally, the oil was poured liberally over the king's head so that it ran down his beard and permeated his clothes. When the king passed by-you would smell him coming! The royal unction conferred a special character on the king as "Yahweh's Anointed." To curse Yahweh's Anointed merited death just as cursing God did. By his anointing the king received the spirit of Yahweh to enable him to fulfill the duties of his office. In actuality, the king was only Yahweh's representative and the anointing designated the king as Yahweh's vessel whose relationship with the deity was governed by the covenant. The anointing created an intimate relationship with God and brought the recipient into the divine sphere of holiness. The king became closely approximated to God. Since all life derives from the divine breath, so the king is the "breath of life" to his people. So this anointing was not just a ritual-it preserved the breath of life from illness and harm.
It is interesting to note that the Hebrew word mãsah is also the root of the term "Messiah." The New Testament was not written in Hebrew but in Greek. In Greek, the term that was used to refer to Jesus was "Kristos," or "Christ," which means "the anointed one."
