“Who do you say that I am?” and Pilate’s question: Are you the King of the Jews? was the focus of Evan Kreider’s sermon last Sunday. In our list of adjectives, describing Jesus as king is not common; we don‘t pray to King Jesus. Evan noted that Christ the king was a popular theme in the middle ages, a concept reflected in some older hymns. Officially Jesus died because he told Pilate he was king of the Jews. Pilate should have realized that Jesus provided no threat to the Roman empire. The inscription “INRI” on many crosses denotes “Jesus of Nazareth King of the Jews.” “Kingdom” is a word denoting tremendous power, Jesus proclaimed a kingdom that has no soldiers, no real estate and no currency.Yet Christ the king demands absolute obedience.
