This phrase, repeated throughout the Gospel of Matthew, was the central message of Jesus. Everything Jesus did was about the kingdom: his teaching showed how people may enter the kingdom (Matt 5:20), His miracles demonstrated that the kingdom was present (Matt 12:28), His parables illustrated truths about the kingdom (Matt 13:11), and when he taught his followers to pray His words included "your kingdom come, your will be done" (Matt 6:10).

But, what exactly is "the kingdom"? What does it mean to belong to God's kingdom? This will be the focus of our study. In "The Kingdom: Here and Now" students will be lead through 4 sessions that teach what God's kingdom is and will be, as well as what it means to be a citizen of that kingdom.

Much of what Jesus teaches about God's kingdom is found in the parables and that's where we will focus our study of the scriptures. Each lesson looks closely at one or two of the kingdom parables within the Gospel of Matthew. Our hope is that students will gain a firm grasp of the concept of the Kingdom of God and their role in it, while also learning about the parables themselves.

Week #1 - The Kingdom Come

In this study of the Parable of the Tenants from Matthew 21, we see that Christ has given his followers, the church, the task of growing his kingdom here on earth.

Week #2 - The Kingdom's Cost

In this study of the Parables of the Hidden Treasure and the Pearl of Great Price from Matthew 13, we learn that the Kingdom of God is so valuable that need to be ready to give up our entire life for it.

Week #3 - The Kingdom's Call

In this study of the Parable of the Talents from Matthew 25 that every follower of Christ has been uniquely gifted and equipped by God to expand his kingdom on earth.

Week #4 - The Kingdom to Come

In this study of the Parable of the Weeds from Matthew 13, we learn that though God's kingdom is here and now there is more yet to come in the future.

There are plenty of people who are grateful that you do what you do. Your students are, their families are, and your church is, even though they may not say it often enough. I want to say thanks on behalf of them, and model the way we need to be saying thanks to the leaders that serve alongside us—in ten different ways—through this ebook.

Thank YOU!
