Jesus Was Always the King, Part Two by Larry HugginsMay 6, 2022
This begins Part Two of the series of blogs and livestream episodes derived from my manuscript, Codex Rex – The Book of the King. Part one established the fact that Jesus was not a poor, homeless vagabond who had no place to lay His
head. In Part Two, I will be sharing the lifestyle He lived and supply further proofs that He was indeed the true, promised, hereditary King of Israel. Now, He is not just the King of the Jews – He’s the King of Kings.
Jesus Was Known as The King of Israel
Today, we see Jesus differently than His contemporaries saw Him. We see Him as our Savior. They saw Him as their promised King. A few of His disciples knew there was something more, but Jesus commanded them not to talk about it.
And he saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Peter answereth and saith unto him, Thou art the Christ. 30 And he charged them that they should tell no man of him. (Mark 8:29)
And as they came down from the mountain (of Transfiguration), he charged them that they should tell no man what things they had seen, till the Son of man were risen from the dead. (Mark 9:9)
In those days, the Jews pinned their hopes upon Jesus restoring their kingdom. When they saw that He was not going to satisfy their political ambitions, they felt betrayed, and they turned upon Him.
The horror is, with full knowledge, the Jews murdered their hereditary King! (This is going to be a bitter pill to swallow.) You might say that those, today, who have rejected the Kingly life of Jesus are, in a figure, murdering the kingly part of His legacy.
The fact is, Jesus was born the King of the Jews, and He represented Himself as such in every way.

Here’s a question for you: Were you taught, as I was, that Jesus was a poor carpenter?
