Christ the Rejected King
Today is Christ the King Sunday. It is normally filled with songs of majesty as we reflect on Jesus’ return to earth at the end of time. He will come in all His glory. Yet there is none of that in today’s Gospel lesson. The lesson is about a time in Jesus’ life when He was at His least glorious--Good Friday. He was completely rejected by the world, yet that is the kind of King Jesus came to be.
