Anointing, Follow-Up

Easton's Bible Dicitonary entry for anoint is useful.

I still am not confident that I understand the volume of oil being used.

Christ means "anointed one," and so there is a close tie between Jesus and the Spirit. His public ministry began with a public display of the Spirit's power, coming down in the form of a dove right after Jesus's baptism (cf. Matthew 3).
