This coin, minted under Byzantine Emperors Basil II and Constantine VIII, 976-1025 A.D., does not mention those rulers, the country, nor the coin value. Instead it is totally devoted to Jesus on both sides. Jesus (IC) Christ (XC) is pictured on one side with the word EMMANOVHA (God with us). The other proclaims "Jesus Christ, King of King" in abbreviated or full Greek, possibly around a cross with steps to heaven. The rulers wisely gave glory to Jesus rather than to themselves.
Jesus Christis "King of Kings and Lord of Lords". (1 Tim. 6:15, Rev. 17:14, and 19:16).
"Therefore God has exalted him and bestowed on him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father." (Phil. 2:9-11)
Do you give the greatest glory to Jesus?
