Jesus was/is a literal king. He rules a literal kingdom and those who believe in Christ are part of this Kingdom. As a king, Jesus doesn’t often get credit for his incredible leadership. The best way to understand why Christ’s leadership and kingdom are so supreme is to see it compared to other leaders.
King of Kings
In a series leading up to Christmas we hold the leadership of Christ up to four of Jesus’ predecessors. Four prominent and influential kings from Israel’s history: David, Jehu, Hezekiah and Zedekiah. Though most are considered the good kings of the Bible, compared to Christ they are just the hired help. As we contrast these kings it becomes obvious why we see an epic picture of Christ as a ruling king int he Revelation 19.
On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written: king of kings and lord of lords. Revelation 19:16
Jesus provided what no earthly king could: forgiveness and hope beyond death. Join us this Holiday season for a fresh new look at the birth of Christ.
