King (!!)

Herod I. Ruled in Judaea 37-4. BC. Authentic Herod? Bust location now? Judiasm Wikia says found in Jerusalem excavations - remarkably intact if so. Flattering? Definitely resembles Roman ruling class. (Unlike Jesus!)
Herod’s kingdom did not long outlast him intact. The kingdom of God is permanent and growing. That kingdom can not be viewed, handled, smelt, tasted nor heard; it can be neither created nor destroyed. The kingdom of God can not be measured but it is real. It can be seen(!), entered and found. Where Jesus is, the kingdom is. Jesus is the door to the kingdom.
