No other king could vanquish the warhorse, or silence the warrior’s rage, riding the lowly back of a donkey.
No other king could break the dominion of darkness, the tyranny of evil, with a reign of grace and a kingdom of peace.
No other king would give his life for the redemption of rebels, his wealth to welcome the outcast. Jesus is that King—the King of glory, Son of the living God.
Not just another king. Not just another prophet. Not just another teacher. He was the one the world had been waiting for, the one to deliver us from captivity: the Son of David and Abraham’s chosen seed.
He is the goal of the Mosaic law, Yahweh in the flesh.
He is the one to establish God’s reign and rule, to heal the sick, give sight to the blind, freedom to the prisoners and proclaim good news to the poor.
This Jesus was the Creator come to earth and the beginning of a new creation.
He embodied the covenant, fulfilled the commandments, and reversed the curse.
This Jesus is the Christ that God spoke of to the serpent, the one prefigured to Noah in the flood, the one promised to Abraham, the one guaranteed to Moses before he died, the one promised to David during his reign, the one revealed to Isaiah as a suffering servant, the one predicted through the prophets and prepared for through John the Baptist.
He is the Father’s Son, Savior of the world, and substitute for our sins. More loving, more holy, and more wonderfully terrifying than we ever thought possible.
He is our Jesus. And there is no other king like him. He is our God, our glory, our victorious Savior.
There is no other king like Him, there is no other king.
