These Three Kings



We don’t want to overlook the story of what God has done and continues to do through Jesus. Ben Stuart looks at the account of Jesus’ birth in the book of Luke and shows us how the historical context of the King’s arrival reveals something miraculous and powerful in the midst of the mundane.

Key Takeaway

Don't build your own kingdom in this world and miss the Kingdom of all kingdoms.

  1. God channels history where he wills to accomplish His purposes.
  2. God is not just powerful, but He fulfills His promises. He really cares.
  3. The Messiah is not just the son of David. He is the King of Kings. David bows at the feet of Jesus.
  4. Luke emphasizes that Jesus is the firstborn—the one whom all things and people are appointed to in creation.
  5. The Most High of kings comes to the lowest of them all. He was born in a manger to show that He came for the mightiest of people and the poorest of people.


"All through history, all our kingdoms will fall except one will reign forever, and the King above all kings, the Most High, came in a manger. He came low for people like you and me."
