Origin of Christianity

Mina konnichiwa! Today I would like talk about one of the religion that has big number of followers around the world; that is Christianity.

The word 'Christian' was mentioned only 3 times in the Bible. This is according to The Book of Acts 11:26, 26:28, and Book of 1 Peter 4:16.

"Acts 11:26

New King James Version (NKJV)
And when he had found him, he brought him to Antioch. So it was that for a whole year they assembled with the church and taught a great many people. And the disciples were first called Christians in Antioch."
Now, where is the word ' Christian' come from? Have a look at the picture below.

Messiah or al-Masih is the title ascribed to Isa alayh al-Salam. However, it has been changed by his follower. The word 'Christ' & 'Christios' never been used by Jesus because it's been translated. The question is, "IF THE WORD 'MESSIAH' WAS NOT BEING TRANSLATED, DO 'CHRISTIAN' EXIST IN THIS WORLD?
In fact, the word 'Christian' just have exists in a place named "Antiokhia' around 42 AD (Masihi) after Jesus has been lifted. This is according to Act of Apostle 11:25-26 which states that:
"25 Then Barnabas went on to Tarsus to look for Saul. 26 When he found him, he brought him back to Antioch. Both of them stayed there with the church for a full year, teaching large crowds of people. (It was at Antioch that the believers[g] were first called Christians.)"

So, who is actually Christian?
