A mighty king of this age would seek to rally as many people as possible for his cause. This would be a remarkable measure of success, but this is not what we see with Christ. Christ has a follower that is willing to follow him, and Christ essentially rebukes him in Luke 9. Why would Christ send this man away? How come Christ does not seek to grab the rightful throne that is his in Jerusalem? Well, these questions are answered through the prophet Amos as he predicts the fate of Israel when they meet with the roaring Lion from Jerusalem.
