Feast of Christ the King
The Epistle: Colossians 1.12-20
The Gospel: St. John 18.33-37
Pilate therefore went into the hall again, and called Jesus, and said to him: Art thou the
king of the Jews? Jesus answered: Sayest thou this thing of thyself, or have
others told it thee of me?
Pilate answered: Am I a Jew? Thy own nation, and the chief priests, have delivered thee up to me: what hast thou done? Jesus answered: My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, my servants would certainly strive that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now my kingdom is not from hence.
Pilate therefore said to him: Art thou a king then? Jesus answered: Thou sayest that I am a king. For this was I born, and for this came I into the world; that I should give testimony to the truth. Every one that is of the truth, heareth my voice.
