In this passage, we read of Pontius Pilate interviewing the Lord Jesus Christ who has been bound by the Jewish leaders who opposed him. Pilate is the Roman governor with the power to execute or free Jesus and he thus interrogates him and what he has done to so anger his opponents. Jesus declares that his kingdom is not of this world - this is part of the truth that he has come into the world to reveal to all of mankind. 

But what does it mean that his kingdom is not of this world? Pastor Hanli explores this truth by considering three key questions about Jesus's kingdom: 1) what are the goals of his kingdom? 2) how do citizens of his kingdom live? 3) how does a person enter the kingdom? This truth is of critical importance, for one will never enjoy life everlasting with the Lord Jesus Christ unless they enter into the kingdom of the blessed God.
