Christ is King.
Who was the Babe of Bethlehem? Were the Magi correct in believing that they had seen a star that signified an historic birth? Was the baby in the manger a King? Were the Roman soldiers right when they nailed a sign over the dying Christ on the Cross declaring, “King of the Jews”? Followers of Jesus have always understood that Jesus was Prophet, Priest and King. He went to the Cross as King; He did not become a King because of the Cross. Christ died as a King; He did not die that he might rise from the dead as King. He was King as he lay in the manger, hung on the Cross and as he left the tomb. - Ron Friesen
