The article considers the Royal dignity of the Lord Jesus Christ. It is noted that the kingship of Christ stems mostly from His Divinity but not from humanity. As one of the descendants of the prophet David He had no difference from other representatives of the impoverished Jewish aristocracy. With a high degree of conditionality one can say that the humanly cherished Royal dignity of the Savior served as the Foundation for His divine kingship. Finally, on the basis of certificates of the Old and New Testament and the Holy fathers, the author comes to the conclusion that the importance of such properties of the God-man is His kingship.
