Luke 13:29, “Then people will come from east and west, from north and south, and will eat in the kingdom of God.”
Jesus clearly stated that His kingdom was not of this world but the political leaders still felt threatened. They recognized a power beyond their control. A power they saw as dangerous.
Power and glory and majesty. Overarching all creation. Overseeing all of history. Overcoming all enemies.
