Thoughts

  • Peter, in his sermon as recorded in Acts 2, contrasts King David with King Jesus. Peter reminds his audience that King David died, was buried, and his remains are in the ground. Jesus, being of the lineage of King David was crucified, buried, and then resurrected and is seated at the right hand of God forever ruling over His people.
  • “In the Old Testament the king has authority to rule over the nation of Israel. In the New Testament, Jesus was born to be King of the Jews (Matt.2:2), but he refused any attempt by the people to try and make him an earthly king with earthly military and political power (John 6:15). He told Pilate, “My kingship is not of this world; if my kingship were of this world, my servants would fight, that I might be handed over to the Jew; but my kingship is not from the world” (John 18:36). Nonetheless, Jesus did have a Kingdom whose arrival he announced in his preaching (Matt 4:17, 23; 12:28, et al.) He is in fact the true King of the new people of God. Thus, Jesus refused to rebuke his disciples who cried out at his triumphal entry into Jerusalem, “Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord!” (Luke 19:38; cf. vv.39-40; also Matt 21:5; John 1:49; Acts 17:7). [1]
  • “After [Jesus’] resurrection, [he] was given by God the Father far greater authority over the church and over the universe. God raised him up and ‘made him sit at his right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come; and he has put all things under his feet and has made him the head over all things for the church’ (Eph. 1:20-22; Matt. 28:18; 1 Cor. 15:25). That authority over the church and over the universe will be more fully recognized by people when Jesus returns to earth in power and great glory to reign (Matt. 26:64; 2 Thes. 1:7-10; Rev 19:11-16). On that day he will be acknowledged as ‘King of kings and Lord of lords’ (Rev. 19:16) and every knee shall bow to him (Phil. 2:10).” [2]
  • Every human being is a worshiper. We either worship the creation or the creator. As Christians we are called by Christ to deny our desires to worship self, material possessions, and the lust of the world. Christ has called us to die to ourselves and to live and worship the true and living King! When we submit our lives to the one and only King Jesus we begin to experience a life full of “love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control” (Galatians 5:22–23).

Discussion Questions

  • What type of king did most of the people of Jesus’ day expect Him to be?
  • What makes Jesus like no other king?
  • How does Christ bring us under His power?
  • How does Christ rule and defend us?
  • How will Christ conquer all of His and all our enemies?
  • What does it mean that Jesus is King over all?
  • How does this make you feel?
  • The memory verse tells us to deny ourselves and take up our cross. What does that mean?
  • What does Jesus mean when he said, “for whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it”?
  • Why is it wise that we follow King Jesus instead of all our desires?
