The Kingdom According to Jesus

A Study of Jesus' Parables on the Kingdom of Heaven
  • By Rob Phillips
$11.95
Product Description

Matthew records no fewer than 13 parables of Jesus about the kingdom of heaven. No doubt, the Son of God placed great emphasis on the kingdom, declaring it to be "at hand" and yet coming. Jesus used parables to reveal previously hidden truths about the kingdom, but for many it remains a mystery. When we turn to the Scriptures, we find perplexing and seemingly contradictory teachings about the kingdom, yet it was the primary focus of Christ's teaching.

What is the kingdom of heaven? Is the kingdom here already, or are we to wait for it? Why did Jesus use parables to describe it? Who's in the kingdom and who's not? Why are some cast out of the kingdom? And what can we learn from Jesus' stories of mustard seeds, pearls and bridesmaids? The Kingdom According to Jesus explores these questions in a simple and compelling way that encourages readers to "seek first the kingdom of God" (Matt. 6:33).
