When my brother and I were growing up, one of our favourite Television programmes was “The Lone Ranger.” Every week we would watch the Lone Ranger’s adventures. A film was made not that long ago about the Lone Ranger. So you may already know that, the Lone Ranger wore a mask, and with his faithful friend Tonto by his side, he went around helping people and fighting evil and injustice. Almost every week the show ended the same way. After the Lone Ranger had saved someone from the baddies, he rode off on his horse, Silver, saying, “Hi Yo, Silver! Away!” Then someone would always ask the question, “Who was that masked man?”

When Jesus lived on earth, he went around helping people too. He fed the hungry, healed the sick, made the blind to see and the lame to walk. After Jesus healed someone, it was not unusual to hear someone in the crowd ask, “Who is this man?” Jesus heard people asking that question and he also heard some of the answers that people gave.

One day Jesus asked his disciples, “Who do people say that I am?”

The disciples answered, “Well, some think you are John the Baptist, others think you are Elijah, Jeremiah or one of the prophets come back to life.”

“But who do you say that I am?” Jesus asked.

Simon Peter replied,

“You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”                             Matthew 16 verse 16

Jesus said, “You are absolutely right, Peter!”

Many people today do not know Jesus and are asking, “Who is this man?” People give many answers. Some say he was a great teacher. Others say he was a prophet or a great religious leader. The real answer to that question is the same answer that Peter gave when Jesus asked it. He is the Christ the Son of the living God.

At Seaside Rock, the Rockers were challenged to remember the words that are written above in bold print. Why not take the challenge too and see if you can remember the words ( without looking at the screen!).

If you want to, you could say this wee prayer……..

Jesus, I know that you are Christ, the Son of the living God. The one in whose name we pray. Amen.
