20 November 2022 - This Sunday is often referred to as “Christ the King” Sunday because of its theme of the reign of Christ. Instead of the more common subject of the “kingdom” Rev Neville Jones takes a different tack and looks at the character of the King. Using a number of bible passages he summarises the promises and prophecies for this divinely anointed ruler, and how Jesus is careful to not inflame any misplaced expectations that many had about this “coming king”. In several well-known passages he then looks at how Jesus reveals his true character, the effect it had on those involved and how we in turn should respond.
Readings: Jeremiah 23:1-6, Colossians 1:11-20, Luke 23:33-43.
