2 Samuel 15:23-16:23
Verse of the day:
Then the leading priests objected and said to Pilate, “Change it from ‘The King of the Jews’ to ‘He said, I am King of the Jews.’” Pilate replied, “No, what I have written, I have written.” (John 19:21-22)
The leading priests objected and said to Pilate, “Change it from ‘The King of the Jews’ to ‘He said, I am King of the Jews.” The rulers smarted under this title which Pilate had tauntingly written. They had insisted that Jesus' kingship was dangerous enough to justify his crucifixion; but now they admit that his kingship was an idle claim, a mere matter of words. The same thing Pilate had said but they, (the priests), had rejected.
What was foretold in Isaiah, has now become a reality. The truth carried in the writing on that sign could never be altered; not by the priests, or by Pilate adding a few words. And the fact that it was written in several languages, testifies to the fact that this truth was written for all mankind; written from the foundations of time. And now it was finished; He was indeed the King of Kings.
So today as we go about living our lives, take heart in the fact that no matter what people may say about the deity of Jesus, the truth in on our side, and it can never be altered.
