Daniel 7: 13-14

In his mysterious vision, Daniel glimpses the peace and unity of God’s kingdom.  At the centre of his vision is a figure of a man who is divinely given kingship – a foreshadowing of Jesus.


Apocalypse 1: 5-8

In a revelation of the last things, this reading calls us to look beyond the here and now to Christ’s eternal reign. All things are drawn to him and in his love we are made a royal priesthood.


John 18: 33-37

At the end of his life, Jesus stands before Pilate as both powerless and King.  His kingship is not of this world, but draws us into truth.
