In our more democratic era we may forget that the Jesus we read about each week, the teacher who let the little children come unto him, the good shepherd who washed his disciples’ feet, was also a great and mighty King. And not just a king, but the king of kings and lord of lords. He came to us in disguise, like a commoner, looking like just another ordinary man. He was a king, but he was a hidden king. We today may fail to see it too, just like most everyone Jesus met.
