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, their hopes were pinned on Jesus restoring their kingdom, and His death was seen as a defeat. It was only after His resurrection that some began seeing Him as the Savior. After the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, multitudes began receiving the revelation that He is the Redeemer, not just of Israel but of all humanity.
It’s important that those who saw him as the true King see him as the true Savior. Likewise, it’s important that we who see Him as the Savior also see Him, not as a vagabond carpenter, but as a King!
The horror is, with full knowledge that Jesus was the King, The Jews murdered their King! (This is going to be a bitter pill to swallow.) You might say that those today who reject the Kingly life of Jesus are, in a figure, rejecting the King.
Below are twenty-two proofs of Jesus’ Kingly lifestyle. In future episodes, I will explain all twenty-two points, one by one.

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