KING JESUS for the Jew
A review of the verses below (put them back into context for further reading) show that not only did the 12 disciples of Jesus believe he was the Messiah, the coming King, so did his detractors, the Pharisees and Sadducees, and most Jews at large; which is why they sought to crucify him. It would upset their religious power. Pilate wondered at the idea as did other Roman leaders. During His three-year ministry He performed miracles to prove His deity and that He was the CHRIST, MESSIAH and their King promised to them in the Old Testament (see below) . And one day soon(after a seven year tribulation, He will return in power and take up His seat upon the Throne of David in Jerusalem to Rule. (Read the words of Peter Acts 2:22-37)

Peter’s Sermon to the Men of Israel (Jews):
Acts 2:22-36 22 Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know:23 Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain:24 Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be holden of it.25 For David speaketh concerning him, I foresaw the Lord always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved:26 Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope:27 Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.28 Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance.29 Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre is with us unto this day.30 Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne;31 He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul was not left in hell, neither his flesh did see corruption.32 This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses.33 Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear.34 For David is not ascended into the heavens: but he saith himself, The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand,35 Until I make thy foes thy footstool.36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made the same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.
