a new kind of king

Tonight while reading to JJ before bed, I came across yet another awesome passage in the Jesus Storybook Bible. (If you do not own this children’s Bible yet, please make plans to go get one. It is so good for adults.)

This passage is the last paragraph from the story of the three wise men coming from Matthew 2. It is speaking of baby Jesus.

“But this child was a new kind of king. Though he was the Prince of Heaven, he had become poor. Though he was the Mighty God, he had become a helpless baby. This King hadn’t come to be the boss. He had come to be a servant.”
