At his last great public declaration before he was crucified, Jesus cried out, "I did not come to judge the world but to save the world" (John 12:47). The world, however, had no interest in responding in kind. It did indeed want to judge Jesus. The darkness wished to overcome him. Jesus was arrested and brought to judgment. Lo and behold, who should he meet first representing the darkness but the high priest. The Jewish leaders, followed by the Jewish people, finally came to the place where they claimed Caesar as their king instead of their Messiah.
The account of Jesus' trial puts the question before us in clear and uncompromising terms, "Who will be your king?" Join us this Lord's Day to acknowledge Jesus as King.
