What is our image of a King? The picture painted by Luke in today’s Gospel is hardly the stuff of kingship! Or is it? This account of Jesus’ death gives us an opportunity to lay aside a lot of cultural baggage about kings, leaders and kingdoms. Jesus’ kingdom is unlike the one that Pilate, or many other earthly leaders know. It is a kingdom built on love, service, justice, reconciliation and peace. Very few of today’s so-called kings can measure up to this: responding to violence with forgiveness, giving those with no hope a reason to hope.
