Which of these doesn’t belong with the others? (Where might Jesus choose to sit?) [Christ the King Sunday]

 

This Sunday we acknowledge Christ the King Sunday.

Designated for this coming Sunday our liturgical calendars, it is the culmination of the Church year.

 Jesus did not to claim to be a King in our normal understanding.

As he lived, he modeled how it is we ourselves should live and treat one another.

Perhaps this visual might help us to imagine in another setting how it is that Jesus would have us live and serve as faithful disciples.

 Which of these is not like the others?

  As Jesus said, “he came not to be served, but to serve” (Matthew 20:28)

   So may we also live our lives, not enthroned in self acclamation, but rather, in humble dedication and service to one another…

Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the governor’s headquarters, and they gathered the whole cohort around him. They stripped him and put a scarlet robe on him, and after twisting some thorns into a crown, they put it on his head. They put a reed in his right hand and knelt before him and mocked him, saying, “Hail, King of the Jews!” 

     Matthew 27:27-29
