Jesus refused the crown

The striking line in last Sunday's reading is: When Jesus realized that they were about to come and take him by force to make him king, he withdrew again to the mountain by himself.

To anyone exposed to Christus Vincit, the subtly monarchist, right-wing hymn adored by those who adore Papa Nazinger, the verse is rebuke enough.
