What is our conception of the Kingdom of God? In Jesus’ day the Jews had a rather narrow view of the Kingdom. Some of the stories told by the King were intended to expand their understanding of God’s reign. Besides expanding our understanding, the parable we will look at in the post serves as a word of encouragement as well.
When Jesus stepped onto the stage of history, He announced that the Kingdom of God was at hand. This was a powerful statement that impacts us all.
