The scriptures make clear that Christ is King. This is the most obvious fact of scripture. The Old Testament repeatedly speaks of the Messiah as king. In Psalm 45:6-7 this is emphatically stated. In fact, His crucifixion was due to His royal status, this was His crime. All the four gospels tell us, Matthew 27:37, Mark 15:26, Luke 23:38, John 19:19, that the crime charged to Him was that He was king of the Jews. By this was meant the Messianic King, the God King.
