In case you haven’t heard, rapper Kanye West titled his newest album Jesus Is King.
“Jesus is king.”
Just three words, but they carry a world of meaning.
Tim Keller explores that meaning in his book with the same title, Jesus the King. See how Jesus came as a king—but a king who had to bear the greatest burden anyone ever has.
Part of the introduction reads, “You may know King’s Cross as a railway station in London, England, one that has been immortalized in the Harry Potter books. But it’s such a perfect encapsulation of the meaning of Jesus’ life that I couldn’t resist borrowing it for the original title of this book.”1
Keller divides the book into two sections: “The King” and “The Cross.”
Both will give you an unforgettable look at Jesus and bring you to know him better.
