King of the Jews

King of the Jews

The term King of the Jews is very important when describing Jesus.

The Christmas Story

It’s associated with the Christmas story because the Magi used it to describe Jesus. They told King Herod they were looking for the King of the Jews who was recently born in Bethlehem.

The Crucifixion

And we hear this term again, very close to his crucifixion. When Pontius Pilate says, “Are you the King of the Jews? And Jesus says, “It is, as you say.”

Jesus, the Nazarene, King of the Jews

Jesus willingly went to the cross so that we could have salvation. And indeed, we did see that on the cross. It was written Jesus, the Nazarene, King of the Jews.
