Glimpses of the Kingdom
September 11 through October 9, 2022; Sundays, 9:45 am, Upstairs Classroom; facilitator Wayne Brown
Class Recordings: September 25
The kingdom of God consumed Jesus’ preaching and teaching. He told his followers to seek it and pray for it. He spoke of the kingdom in the past tense, the present and the future. He said it was of inestimable value and should be the number one priority in the disciple’s life. He explained how it grows and advances in the world, but the Gospel writers don’t record what Jesus meant by the “kingdom of God.” In five sessions we’ll begin to explore this enigmatic topic by:
Looking at the concept in Jewish thought and history
Examining the transformative process of “seeking the kingdom”
Seeing what the kingdom might look like in the life of the believer
Embracing the Kingly role of Jesus
Looking ahead to a restored kingdom
Materials for your consideration will be provided during the class.
