a study on the parables of the kingdom
One of the primary themes of Jesus’ teaching is the kingdom of heaven. After his baptism and subsequent temptation, Jesus began to teach and preach in towns and villages everywhere, saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” Jesus would go on to tell short stories, called parables, to explain what the kingdom was like. We’re going to take the summer to examine the Kingdom Parables in the book of Matthew (and some from Luke), to help us understand what kind of kingdom Jesus is saying is already here, but not yet completely here, and more importantly, what the King is setting out to accomplish. Hope you can join us!
