Rex Regum

Kiss of Judas. Giotto (ca. 1267 – 1337)
Fresco. Capella degli Scrovegni, Padua, Italy

Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.

I give thee charge in the sight of God, who quickeneth all things, and before Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed a good confession;

That thou keep this commandment without spot, unrebukeable, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ:

Which in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords;

Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power everlasting.


1 Timothy 6:12-16 KJVA

Christus Rex - beatus et solus potens rex regum et Dominus dominantium
