Royalty the dignified quality or nature of a king. The Hebrew word used is melek; the Greek word is basileus.

The royalty of His deity, by virtue of the fact that He is eternal and infinite God, GEN 1:1; COL 1:16.

The royalty of His Hypostatic Union, by virtue of His strategic victory at the cross, COL 2:14-15.

Point 2. The Divine Royalty of Christ.

As the manifest person of the Trinity, our Lord wears the crown of divine royalty, JOH 1:18; JOH 6:46, 1TI 6:16 1JO 4:12.

Point 3. The Jewish Royalty of Christ, the Royalty of His Humanity.

At the point of His virgin birth our Lord Jesus Christ became Jewish royalty, directly descendant from David and Bathsheba in the tribe of Judah, the family of Jesse.
This was the fuflillment of the promise given in such passages such as 2SA 7:8-16; PSA 89:20-37.

Solomons line goes down to Joseph (Mat 1) and Nathans line goes down to Mary, (Luke 1).

Point 4. The Battlefield Royalty of Jesus Christ.

By living in the PPOG, our Lord was qualified by impeccability to go to the cross and be judged for our sins.

This battlefield royalty makes Jesus Christ the ruler of elect angels and regenerate mankind, COL 2:14; HEB 2:14.

Point 5. The Titles of Our Lords Three Categories of Royalty.

Divine royalty title: Son of God (or Jehovah Elohim in the Old Testament).

Jewish royalty title: Son of David.

“King of kings” gives Christ precedence over human rulers;
“Lord of lords” gives Christ precedence over angelic rulers, REV 19:16.

Jewish royalty: the dynasty of David.

He also has in His family some step brothers, James, Joseph Jr. Simon, Judas or Jude.

He also has at least two sisters, step sisters, so that He has at least minimum of six step-brothers, step-sisters.

The third royalty is the battlefield royalty: the royal family of God, every Church-age believer.
