ChrisThe Jews were the first to subject their kings to the same laws as its people.
In Deuteronomy, The Prophet Moses is speaking to all the tribes of Israel. And regarding a king, Moses tells them what the king should do, if Israel should ever appoint one to rule over them.
Later the Prophet Samuel told Israel what the king would do: that the king would be a big burden to the people, which he did.
The first king, Saul, did not follow Moses or the Prophet of Saul's time. What stopped King Saul was the Philistines and Saul committing suicide.
King Rehoboam refused the request of most the tribes to have less taxes and impositions. So most of Israel left, leaving behind a remnant of Judah, Benjamin and Levi.
And today, the only Jews that count are those who follow Jesus Christ. See Romans 2:28-29
People who follow the Talmud, and claim to be of Judah, are really of the synogog of God's adversary.
Judah did not subject the king to the same laws as the people.
