The three greatest kings of Israel were Saul, David, and Solomon. However, many years later a different king would come. This king was born in a stable, not a palace. He served the sick, the poor and the needy and was without any sin. This king is Jesus, God's Son. He is a very different king. His greatest victory was his death on the cross and because of that God made him, the greatest of all kings; the King of Kings.
