Focus on the Sunday Gospel for the Solemnity of Christ the King.
Use this unit study to help teach children about Christ's Kingship and how Jesus should be the king of our heart. This lesson is based on John 18:33-37.
In this week’s Gospel, Jesus is being questioned by Pontius Pilate during His trial. Pilate asks if Jesus is the King of the Jews. The exchange brings to light Christ’s kingship, but the Lord tells the Roman leader that His kingdom is not of this world. The Solemnity of the Christ the King of the Universe reminds us that Jesus is not only the most powerful ruler of heaven and earth but more importantly; He should be the ruler of one’s mind, will, body (including the body of Christ, the Church), and especially, one’s heart.
