Savior King View video
John 19:14 - 19:22
14. It was the day of Preparation of Passover Week, about the sixth hour. "Here is your king," Pilate said to the Jews.
15. But they shouted, "Take him away! Take him away! Crucify him!" "Shall I crucify your king?" Pilate asked. "We have no king but Caesar," the chief priests answered.
16. Finally Pilate handed him over to them to be crucified. So the soldiers took charge of Jesus.
17. Carrying his own cross, he went out to the place of the Skull (which in Aramaic is called Golgotha).
18. There they crucified him, and with him two others--one on each side and Jesus in the middle.
19. Pilate had a notice prepared and fastened to the cross. It read:|sc JESUS OF NAZARETH, THE KING OF THE JEWS.
20. Many of the Jews read this sign, for the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city, and the sign was written in Aramaic, Latin and Greek.
21. The chief priests of the Jews protested to Pilate, "Do not write 'The King of the Jews,' but that this man claimed to be king of the Jews."
22. Pilate answered, "What I have written, I have written."
Reflection
No Other King (19:14–15)
Pilate refers to Jesus as “king” because of the charges that have been made against Him. Jesus is accused of claiming to be the king of the Jews, which is considered a political threat to Caesar’s power. It is intriguing that the words of Pilate, a pagan ruler, represent the truth about Jesus’ identity while the leaders of God’s chosen people claim, “We have no king but Caesar.” The actions of the chief priests might seem reprehensible to us, but their sin is one that we can also fall into easily. Our selfish and worldly desires might lead us astray to follow other gods, but there is only one King who is worthy of our worship and reverence: Jesus Christ.

Crucified King (19:16–22)
Jesus is taken by Roman soldiers, and He is crucified at Golgotha. The Son of God is tortured and killed by one of the most agonizing forms of execution ever conceived. His beaten, bleeding body is suspended on a wooden cross by large nails driven into His hands and feet. Jesus hangs there for hours, suffering unimaginable pain and enduring public humiliation. His so-called crime is written down and fastened to the cross: “JESUS OF NAZARETH, THE KING OF THE JEWS.” On the cross, our Savior King and the Passover Lamb experienced the wrath of God. He shed His blood and gave up His life on the cross to save us from the punishment that we rightly deserve. May we always remember His death with a response of gratitude.
