I’ve argued for a number of years that individual sovereignty is a capacity that flows from God. Sovereignty is primarily a spiritual, rather than political, concept. We are each “sovereign” because—according to the “Declaration of Independence”—we are each endowed by our Creator with certain, God-given, unalienable Rights.
I’m not alleging that the following comments are correct or even consistent. I’m only saying that they cross my mind as interesting questions or possibilities.
Luke 23:1-2 “And the whole multitude of them arose, and led him unto Pilate. And they began to accuse him, saying, We found this fellow perverting the nation, and forbidding to give tribute to Caesar, saying that he himself is Christ a King.”
Note that “a” is an indefinite article. It signifies one of many who are otherwise similar or even identical.
According to the King James version of the Bible, the multitude accused the Messiah of claiming to be “a King,” that is to say, “a sovereign”—one of several, perhaps many, but not the only “King”/sovereign.
