As usual on a Sunday morning I caught the last ten minutes of the morning service on Radio 4. Today is Palm Sunday (I think) so it was all about crowns and thrones and kingliness. Maybe this stuff had a real emotional resonance in the days of Queen Victoria, but now- when our models of royalty are the very unpleasant Windsors- I think not. In the modern world the only place where kings are unfailingly noble and wise and beneficent is Middle Earth. So Jesus equates to Aragorn- yeah, precisely.
