Hailing the King of the Jews is not something that should have been expected of the religious leaders of Jesus' day. They were expected to take him "under their wings" and teach him about the prophets and the prophecies. Instead, they regaled him as a "know it all." They chose to ridicule him, instead of helping to refine his knowledge.
They could have added their higher learning and understanding to his practical wisdom. If they had done so, they would have dealt a lethal blow to the kingdom of Satan. He would have been defeated two thousand years ago.
Today, the kingdom of Satan is so weakened that it easily can be defeated within the next six to ten years. It is up to the religious leaders to decide whether or not they will try to continue this battle for the next one thousand years, knowing that Satan's defeat is certain.
