A Different Kind of King – John 19

As Jesus dies on the cross, he reigns as king. His exaltation is his humiliation, his victory is his death, his coronation is the cross. Jesus is a radically different kind of king. He offers up his life for his people. Far from being an oppressive king or irrelevant royal, Jesus kingship brings life, salvation and redemption to a world that’s desperately in need of freedom and love.
