Nehemiah 13:1-31; Zechariah 9:1-10:12; Revelation 17:1-18

Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? Matt. 2:2, NKJV

Born a King? No one has ever been born a king! All are born a prince, but uniquely the Lord was born a King. He was no successor to Herod or to any other king. He was born a king and humbly we acknowledge that He died a King. Over His cross were the words, “JESUS OF NAZARETH, THE KING OF THE JEWS” (John 19:19, NKJV). In His coming glory, He will have a name written on His robe and thigh, “KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS” (Rev. 19:16, NKJV). Supremely He will reign. He was rejected in His birth, life and death and is still by much of the world today. But may our hearts bow in worship to the newborn King. —Jim Comte

And He shall reign forever and ever,
Hallelujah, Hallelujah,
King of kings! And Lord of lords!
Forever and ever, Hallelujah! —George Frederick Handel
