The last two days at mass, we’ve heard excerpts from St. Peter’s Pentecost Sermon. He uses persuasive arguments to prove that Jesus of Nazareth is both “Lord and Christ.” “Christ” means the Anointed One, the Messiah. Beyond that, when he says that Jesus is “Lord” he is implying that Jesus is divine. “Lord,” “Adonai” in Hebrew, “Kyrios” in Greek was a substitute for using the name of God, “YHWH.” This was an extraordinary statement for a Jew to make. Their Torah, Instruction, told them that there is One God and not to make a graven image of Him. And, here, Peter is saying that one who lived and died and rose is God in the flesh. Do you REALLY believe that Jesus is Lord? What are you doing to show it?
