KING JESUS

THE FIRST BOOK IN THE NEW TESTAMENT, MATTHEW, SPEAKS TO THE FACT THAT JESUS CHRIST WAS THE PROMISED, MESSIANIC KING PROPHESIED IN THE OLD TESTAMENT WRITINGS. MANY BIBLICAL SCHOLARS RECOGNIZE THE KEY WORD IN MATTHEW IS “KING”. MANY BIBLICAL SCHOLARS ALSO RECOGNIZE MATTHEW 2:2 AS THE KEY VERSE IN MATTHEW. MISCONCEPTIONS AND LEGENDS ABOUND REGARDING THESE “KINGS” WHO SOUGHT THE CHRIST CHILD. IN FACT, THEY WERE NOT KINGS RATHER “WISE MEN”. THE BEST EVIDENCE IS THESE MEN WERE PRACTICING ASTRONOMERS (A SCIENCE) OPPOSED TO ASTROLOGERS THAT IS NOT SCIENTIFIC. GOD GUIDED THESE WISE MEN BY A STAR USING THEIR OWN MEDIUM (ASTRONOMY). DISPUTE ARISES REGARDING THE EXACT TIME THESE WISE MEN ARRIVED IN JERUSALEM.

SPIRITUAL INSIGHT:

THESE WISE MEN ASKED, “WHERE IS HE WHO IS BORN KING OF THE JEWS?’ THIS AFFIRMATION SPEAKS TO THE ISSUE THAT CHRIST CAME FIRST TO ISRAEL. SADLY, ISRAEL LARGELY REJECTED THE LONG PROPHESIED JEWISH, KING! JOHN 1: 11 “AND HE CAME UNTO HIS OWN AND HIS OWN RECEIVED HIM NOT.” (NKJV)

CHRIST REPEATEDLY OFFERED HIMSELF AS KING TO THE JEWISH COMMUNITY. HOWEVER, HIS EFFORTS WERE LARGELY REJECTED. IN MATTHEW 16: 13-20 YOU NOTICE A CHANGE IN DIRECTION. AFTER PETER’S CONFESSION, CHRIST STATES HE WOULD BUILD HIS CHURCH UPON THIS ROCK. THE ROCK IS KING JESUS!

APPLICATION: FOLLOW THE LEAD OF THE WISE MEN: MAKE HIM KING IN YOUR LIFE!
