On the day Americans honor Martin Luther King, Jr., I think there can be no greater praise for him than to say he was the man he was, because of his relationship to the KING OF KINGS, JESUS CHRIST!  I am certain that if we could ask him today, he would humbly agree!  So in honor of a King, I will praise his King by sharing my understanding of the following verses (Skip's Lighthouse Version):

*  Matthew 2:1-2 - "Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, Saying, Where is He Who is born King of the Jews?  For we have seen His star in the east, and are come to worship Him."

*  Matthew 21:5 - Jesus said, "Tell the daughter of Zion, Behold, your King comes unto you, meek, and sitting upon a lowly beast of burden."

*  Matthew 25:34, 40 - "Then shall the King say unto them on His right hand, Come, you who are blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:  And the King shall answer and say unto them, Truly I say unto you, In as much as you have done it unto one of the least of these My brethren, you have done it unto Me."
*  Matthew 27:11, 37 - "And Jesus stood before Pilate, the governor:  and he asked Him, saying, Are You the King of the Jews?  And Jesus said unto him, You say it."  Then Pilate had his men  "...set up over His head His accusation written, THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS."

*  Mark 15:9 - "But Pilate answered them, saying, Do you want me to release unto you the King of the Jews?"

*  Luke 19:38 - As Jesus entered Jerusalem, the huge crowd was "Saying, Blessed is the King Who comes in the name of the Lord: let there be peace in heaven, and glory in the highest."

*  John 1:49 - "Nathanael answered and said unto Him, Rabbi, You are the Son of God; You are the King of Israel."

*  John 19:14, 21-22  - " And it was the preparation day for the Passover, and about the sixth hour: and Pilate said to the Jews, Behold your King!"  After Pilate had the accusation nailed of the head of Jesus, the chief priests said to Pilate, "Write not, The King of the Jews; but that He said, I am King of the Jews.  Pilate answered, What I have written, I have written."
