It takes the Wise Men from the East some time to realize that the new king of the Jews will be not just a new king, but a new kind of king: a king who will rule through the power of love rather than force and fear. This new kind of king does not live on a palace on top of a hill, but among his people in the trailer parks and slums. This new kind of king does not command, but invites, does not compel but persuades, does not dominate but serves. This new kind of king does not have secret police to suppress dissent and put down rebellion, because he does not accumulate power, but shares it freely. This new kind of king is willing to be unsettled, because real power is not about getting power, but about empowering others.
