Either one is correct. Everyone knows what you're talking about either way, but Christ is not Jesus's last name so Jesus the Christ is more correct.
That would be like using someone's job or profession and using it as their last name. If Isaac was a fisherman his whole life his name would not be Isaac Fisherman, it would be Isaac Shrout although people may call him Isaac the Fisherman.

The best part is the footnotes--just knowing the little details makes the life of the Savior that much more real and close, like you were there. So many things about Nazareth and Judea sounded like Paraguay to me that on a long walk through strange places (15 miles a day sometimes) I could look aroun ...more

It's a very thorough walk through His life and ministry, starting in the preexistence. The writing is sometimes hard to understand, as Talmage has a large vocabulary and a poetic prose that takes some getting used to. As a LDS member my whole life, I found that I already knew almost all the "stories", but it was interesting ...more
