The Old Testament prophesied of a coming king and an everlasting kingdom. How does Jesus’ early life fulfill these predictions? Matthew’s text tells us three things about Jesus’ kingship: He is the king of the Jews proclaimed, the king of the Jews prophesied, and the king of the Jews proclaimed. The Magi responded to Jesus’ kingship by seeking Him and submitting to Him; Herod responded by upholding his own kingship. How will you respond?
