Zechariah 7:8-10

8And the word of the LORD came again to Zechariah:

9"This is what the LORD Almighty says: 'Administer true justice; show mercy and compassion to one another.

10Do not oppress the widow or the fatherless, the alien or the poor. In your hearts do not think evil of each other.'

Hebrews 4:16
16Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.

“The Lone Lawman,” an Adventures in Odyssey Club exclusive, is episode #746 of the Adventures in Odyssey audio series. It was written by Robert G. Lee, and was originally released on August 1, 2014.


Jason, Red and Whit and the other Odyssey characters perform a new KYDS Radio show set in the wild west. A young boy gets mixed up with a gang of bank robbers. Can a hero on horseback save the day?

Discussion Questions

  1. How do you feel about old westerns? If you’re a fan, talk about a favorite or two. Is there a Hollywood classic or radio serial you might enjoy as a family?
  2. If you’d been part of the Kids’ Radio cast, which role would you have wanted to play? Why?
  3. In your own words, define “justice” and “mercy.”
  4. Jason quoted someone who said, “Mercy is not getting what we do deserve, and grace is getting what we don’t deserve.” Can you recall a time in your own life where that proved to be true?
  5. Brian felt that Percy shouldn’t be arrested because he was a poor orphan “forced into breaking the law.” Would you agree? What would you consider to be a fair punishment, and why?
  6. Discuss the fine line between the Lone Lawman’s quest for justice and his thirst for revenge. Read Romans 12:19. Describe a time when you had a hard time forgiving someone who hurt you. If the situation is still unresolved, what can you do to heal that relationship?
  7. How did you feel when the pastor decided to adopt Percy? Do you know of a family (maybe yours) that has adopted a child? How has that choice been both a challenge and a wonderful blessing?
  8. Need mercy? Read Hebrews 4:16, which tells us to approach God’s “throne of grace” with confidence in times of need. Take turns answering the question, “What do you need right now?” Then spend a few minutes praying together.



  • Brian McCarthy's observation that the story contains "no girls" is accurate: this episode's cast and characters are all male.
  • The music cue that plays after the first scene is almost identical to the The Magnificent Seven theme. A similar theme will repeat several times during the episode.
  • The music cue which plays when Jefferson Grant charges off to check on the bank is very similar to the iconic Lone Ranger theme song.
  • The music intro which plays after the in-episode commercial which Wooton deems "all wrong" is actually the Lone Ranger theme song.
  • The "Lone Lawman" is probably a reference to the Lone Ranger, while his horse, Thunder, is probably named for the Lone Ranger's horse Silver.
  • The Columbian Coffee Bean commercial is a reference to the commercials which aired during the old-time Western radio serials Whit would have listened to.
  • Eugene quotes Robert Frost's Masque of Mercy when he says "Nothing can make injustice just but mercy".
