And Jesus Christ; Son of God, Son of Man; the one who comes as King of the new Kingdom, does not come as a king like the Kings of the Gentiles do: to lord it over them and exercise authority over them.
Instead, this King; GOD in the flesh; comes to be a slave. Look at what he says:
“Jesus Christ, who is King; who is GOD; comes not to BE served, but to serve.”
That is what is noble. That is what is honorable. That is what is true glory. The service, the suffering, is noble. It is where Jesus is ultimately revealed to be God.
