Kingdom Here, Kingdom Come 2
The Kingdom of God is too often misunderstood. Throughout all history the kingdoms of man have been rising and falling, quarrelling and declaring peace. We have learned that in time that virtually all kingdoms of man fall. Enter the Kingdom of God. This is the announced Kingdom of Jesus. This is the Gospel. One of the reasons that this Kingdom is different, and is such good news, is that it takes a hard right from the thinking of all of the ages of this world: The Kingdom is for everyone — including the un-includable. Terry continues to offer us clarification on the other-worldly vision Kingdom of God. The Kingdom of Heaven is where God's will is being done.
Terry proclaims the one Gospel through the history, research, rememberings and faith expressed in the text of the Gospel According to Luke. Jesus himself is the good news expressed by Luke. Beginning with the birth narratives unique to Luke's presentation, the good news of the Kingdom explodes into faithful view as each account, teaching, parable and event lived out and offered by Jesus, the Messiah-King, is examined the way Luke seemingly examined Jesus in his own work. Here we find a Jesus to love, a Jesus to follow, and ultimately a Jesus to worship.
