Kings and King of Kings #AtoZChallenge

This year my A to Z challenge is about Christmas, a major festival in the Christian Church. Another major festival is Easter, which I wrote about for the A to Z Challenge in 2020.

So far in the alphabet my posts for letter F and letter G have mentioned the Magi, who may have been kings. They went searching for the Christ child. Matthew 2:1-2

The Bible is full of praise for Jesus, whose birth is celebrated at Christmas. He is sometimes called the King of Kings. In his ministry he taught about the kingdom of heaven or the Kingdom of God. Kingdom was one of my words for the 2021 A to Z Challenge. In an earlier A to Z about the names of God I wrote briefly about Jesus’ name being the Name above all names.

King of the Jews was the name the wise men (or kings) called him when they went looking for him in Herod’s palace. It was also the name Pontius Pilate used to describe him at his crucifixion.

King of kings‘ is included in a well-known part of Handel’s Messiah – The Hallelujah chorus.

While this year’s A to Z badges by Anjela Curtis honour the late Jeremy Hawkins, I hope that my posts about Christmas honour Jesus Christ, ‘who was and is and is to come’. Revelation 1:4
