The theory is that after Cyrus the great freed the Jews from exile they took in a lot of persons influence. Which is all a fact but where I theorize is that I think that the title for god king of king of kings come from the title Shananshah. Which means king of kings. So the Jews took the title king of kings from Persia as part of all the other Jews resins influences. The Neo-Babylonians also used it so it could have come from them but I think Persia is more likely
I have a theory on why god is referred to as king of kings
