Christ the King B21

Pilate asks Jesus two questions: “Are you the King of the Jews?” and “What have you done?” And Jesus gives him an answer: “My kingdom does not belong to this world. My kingdom is not here.”

I used to think that the answer meant something like it’s in heaven, not in this visible world, but in a different place. Now I think that Jesus was claiming that his kingdom is not what people think it is.

The key is the 2nd question: “What have you done?” I imagine Jesus could have answered Pilate in these words.

“I have come not to be served but to serve, to seek out the poor, the looked down upon, the despised, abandoned, those on the margins, people written off by those who consider themselves better whether socially, materially, or religiously.

 “I healed people of their sicknesses whether in body or spirit, restoring them to their families and communities, giving them hope and peace. I fed thousands by giving a lesson of sharing what little I and my disciples had and cared for the earth by collecting the leftovers to use another day.  I did not seek fame and refused the honors the people wanted to bestow on me.

“I wanted peace, not war; forgiveness, not revenge; love, not hate, acceptance of others, not rejection; harmony, not discord; generosity, not greed. I told stories in order to make people think rather than use force, an invitation rather than a command, to have others freely choose to follow my values rather than to impose my will by power, to enter into a covenant rather than a contract. I have come that they might have life and have it abundantly.”

And then, Pilate then wrote: “Jesus Christ, King of the Jews”.

This is Jesus Christ our King! His kingdom is not like any other.
