The Story Of A King

Spoken word poem that examines the claims of the King who came to save

On the first Easter Sunday, the world was turned upside down and a new story was written. A dead man rose from the grave, a king triumphed the greatest enemy and captives were set free. Our world has never been the same.

This king also spoke of a kingdom that sounds almost too good to be true: care for the oppressed, liberation for prisoners, joy for the weary.

Disagreements about who this man was and why he came have echoed down the ages and into the 21st Century; he’s not someone worth ignoring.

So, what do you make of this story of the king?
