In a message, “Jesus Declares His Kingship,” John Piper says Jesus declares himself King of the Jews and King of the nations in four ways:
- Jesus Declares His Kingship by Riding on a Donkey (Zech. 9:9)
- Jesus Declares His Kingship by Cleansing the Temple (Isa. 56:7)
- Jesus Declares His Kingship by Healing (Isa. 35:4-6)
- Jesus Declares His Kingship by His Response to Children (Psalm 8)
Jesus came the first time, and he is coming again, as the king over all kings. King of Israel, king of all the nations, king of nature and the universe. Until he comes again, there is a day of amnesty and forgiveness and patience. He still rides a donkey and not yet a white war-horse with a rod of iron. He is ready to save all who receive him as Savior and Treasure and King. Come to him. Know him. Receive him. Live your life in allegiance to him.
