Jesus, our King, Lord, Master, Savior, brother and friend. He IS The Faithful Witness. His very presence is with us and His courage, strength and power He gives to us. As Jesus bravely bore witness to the truth before the earthly ‘powers that be’, He lovingly demonstrated to us the exact way many of us must also be His witnesses, down through the centuries, and to the very end.
Witness to the Religious Establishment
And the high priest stood up and came forward and questioned Jesus, saying, “Do You make no answer? What is it that these men are testifying against You?” But He kept silent, and made no answer. Again that high priest was questioning Him, and saying to Him, “Are You the Christ, the Son of the Blessed One?” And Jesus said, “I am; and you shall see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of Power, and coming with the clouds of heaven.” Mark14:60-62
Witness to Kings and Rulers
Pilate therefore said to Him, “So You are a king?” Jesus answered, “You say correctly that I am a king. For this I have been born, and for this I have come into the world, to bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.” John18:37-38
