As we see Jesus’ kingship on show, we’ll see he’s unlike any king we might know

What kind of king do we imagine Jesus to be? Is he just a saviour on whom we call in time of great need, but who doesn't really affect the way we live? Is he a tyrant who domineers and controls everything we do with an iron rod?

Or is he something different?

In this short animation, discover that Jesus is a king like no other. He is our valiant and heroic rescuer, as well as the kind, compassionate ruler of his subjects: "He fights our great enemies of Sin, Sickness and Death,/ With a word, with a touch, with barely a breath".

What will you make of King Jesus?

Possible Discussion Questions

  • How is Jesus different to the kind of one-off rescuer king we meet in fairytales, or the tyrant king who rules without any discernible love for his subjects?
  • How does this understanding of the nature of Jesus's kingship shape our attitude to the Bible's instruction to submit to him?
