Jesus: God’s Kind of King

Christ the King Date: November 20, 2016 Liturgical Day: Christ the King Sunday; Year C

Summary: Jesus’ first century listeners know much about the rulers of their day — and so do we. Yet Jesus will proclaim and live out a different way of ruling. He will rule not with power and might; not with violence and terror; but with unconditional love, transforming grace, and heartfelt compassion. And he calls us, his loyal subjects, to follow him in doing so.

Some discussion Questions:

  1. How does the kingship of Jesus rule our hearts and our lives?
  2. How does this differ from the way contemporary rulers govern?
  3. What does this mean for our day-to-day living?
