Pilate therefore said to Him, “Are You a king then?” Jesus answered, “You say rightly that I am a king. For this cause I was born, and for this cause I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.” (John 18:37)
Rebel with a Cause
In His day, Jesus created a stir with the establishment. He upset the norms of the day. He created unrest with the intellectual crowd. He formed a gang of twelve. He hung out with thieves and harlots and outcasts. He was arrested by anger, convicted by fear and sentenced to death by ignorance. He died a martyr; He arose a Savior; He lives forever.
“…whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)
