Tim, I think he asked it of Peter and Peter replied "Thou art the
Christ." The version I'm quoting right now is my head. But to
answer your question, I'm quoting a version in my head taken from the
King James Version. Please don't say I'm too lazy to look it
up--I'm in a hurry right now. My husband is getting fed up with my
being hooked to the computer....this list is wonderful...I could stay
wired all day....and is obsessive...
