Saved Into the Kingdom

When the New Testament talks about dying or perishing, it primarily doesn’t refer to your life being over but instead dying spiritually and separating from God. That sends many of us to final destination thinking, usually “saved out of” thinking (this world, hell, etc.). But that’s not all it means or can mean, and it may not be Jesus’ primary message about being saved. "Saved from" is not Jesus’ good news. The Gospel is the good news of being "saved into" the Kingdom of God. When it comes to Jesus, and the Gospel message, are we being saved into the Kingdom?

Series Information

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.
