Pilate asked Jesus, “Are you the King of the Jews?” Jesus said, “My kingdom does not belong to this world; if it did, my followers would fight to keep me from being taken by the authorities. You say that I am a king. I was born and came into the world for this one purpose: to speak about the truth. Whoever belongs to the truth listens to me.” – Dan 7:13-14 | Ps 92 | Rev 1:5-8 | Jn 18:33-37

We praise you!
We give you glory!
