If I were to ask you what your theology was regarding the Kingdom of God, how would you respond? If you are like a lot of people, you would have no idea what I was talking about. It seems as though we have lots of theology about everything else but not the Kingdom. I find that a little odd. Do you? Maybe we need to talk about why it is important.
Through all the teaching and preaching we find in the four Gospels, never once did Jesus provide a clear definition of the Kingdom of God. This was largely due to the fact that His audience, because of their history, would have had some idea what it referred to. He did, however, tell lots of stories related to the Kingdom. What was that all about?
