Divinity of Jesus
It is written that "If you truly believe in the divinity of Jesus, then you believe everything that He said. And "If everything that Jesus said and did were written, the world could not contain the books." So where do we go to get the answers? Simon, Hebrew for listener, a fisherman was there. What could have Simon heard, seen and witnessed? Jesus curing the sick, changing water into wine and walking on water. How could you not follow someone with this power. How can this Man Jesus accomplish all of these miracles. Jesus making the blind see, raising the dead and allowing Simon to walk on water and also curing Simon’s mother. He witnessed Jesus forgive a mans sins that was stricked with Palsey and cripled saying, "Thy sins be forgiven thee”, and on a side note Jesus told this paralyzed man to “Arise, and take up thy bed, and walk." Simon here a witness to resurrection life by Jesus restoring not only friendship to the soul through Baptism, but by restoration of friendship to the flesh by the power of forgiving sins on earth. Can you imagine the questions waking up in the morning being Simon? The answer would be,"Where is Jesus.” Where, where, where. This Man is amazing. Then one day when Jesus asked him, who are they saying I Am?, Simon response, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” Jesus, pressing Simon a little harder, looked again at him. Simon now a little scared realizing a different question was about to be asked. Jesus asks, "Who do you say I Am." Simon's answer was nothing short of, "You are God". This realization was a gift from Jesus' father in heaven, And the four most powerful words in the bible, "The Word became Flesh", changed Simon's name to Peter, Petros, Rock, Cephas. The name change is to underline the transformation of the person whom hear words of God, Simon to a spiritual rock Peter. The rock of the faith, "Jesus is God", became the cornerstone of the Church and everything Peter had heard and witnessed. Again if everything were written the world could not contain the books. So where do we go the get the answers?
