Luke is making very clear here the imperfections that one will find in the Kingdom of God. Jesus turns over old expectations of what pure and noble religion is. This king is born in a Bethlehem stable, not a Jerusalem palace. This king enters Jerusalem on a donkey, not a chariot pulled by horses. This king finally claims his throne hanging on a cross. It may not look like some people’s idea of God, but in faith we trust this is the Kingdom of God.
