Truth and Consequences
Then Pilate entered the headquarters again, summoned Jesus, and asked him, "Are you the King of the Jews?" Jesus answered, "Do you ask this on your own, or did others tell you about me?"
Pilate replied, "I am not a Jew, am I? Your own nation and the chief priests have handed you over to me. What have you done?" Jesus answered, "My kingdom is not from this world. If my kingdom were from this world, my followers would be fighting to keep me from being handed over to the Jews. But as it is, my kingdom is not from here."
Pilate asked him, "So you are a king?" Jesus answered, "You say that I am a king. For this I was born, and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone who belongs to the truth listens to my voice."
Politics as Usual

We can gather that Pilate understood about claims to earthly kingship, but like most politicians, he was probably lost when it came to the truth. Remember, the kingdom is in the midst of us or, perhaps we are in the midst of it (aka God's love). May we make the most of it.

Sleep on This
1 Woe to the shepherds who destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! says the LORD. 2 Therefore thus says the LORD, the God of Israel, concerning the shepherds who shepherd my people: It is you who have scattered my flock, and have driven them away, and you have not attended to them. So I will attend to you for your evil doings, says the LORD. 3 Then I myself will gather the remnant of my flock out of all the lands where I have driven them, and I will bring them back to their fold, and they shall be fruitful and multiply. 4 I will raise up shepherds over them who will shepherd them, and they shall not fear any longer, or be dismayed, nor shall any be missing, says the LORD. 5 The days are surely coming, says the LORD, when I will raise up for David a righteous Branch, and he shall reign as king and deal wisely, and shall execute justice and righteousness in the land. 6 In his days Judah will be saved and Israel will live in safety. And this is the name by which he will be called: "The LORD is our righteousness."

Judah's corrupt leadership is the cause of its fall, but in due time God will save a remnant, give them a good davidic king and all will be well with Judah and Israel once again. The restored kingdoms are seen as a return to one kingdom and under one king in the davidic line, perhaps harkening back to a time before Israel split from Judah and they were at their strongest (under Saul, David and finally Solomon). Apparently sheep are way more talented that generally given credit (or debit) for.
