Can I subcribe to multiple messages from a topic?

Maybe I am doing this wrong. Should I have one topic per message? I have multiple joints in one node. The node is publishing the joints as joint1 and joint2 to the "joint" topic. I can only find how to create a callback for a topic. I don't see anything about getting the different joint messages from the joint topic.

You can publish a JointState Message to the topic ( containing the joint states of both joints. Subscriptions are always related to a topic not to a message. Maybe it is worth going through the tutorials, espiacally:Understanding topics.
