Biblical Theology of THE Kingdom of God

The Bible from beginning to end portrays God as the
sovereign Lord over all things. He reigns as both
creator and sustainer of all that exists, especially over
human affairs.
Unfortunately, Adam and Eve rebelled against God’s
authority as king with severe consequences for the
history of humanity. From this catastrophic
beginning in Gen 3, the Bible reveals how God
gradually re-establishes his rule over the whole earth
by redeeming humanity and his creation.
When Jesus arrived, he inaugurated a spiritual
kingdom (Mk 1:15), yet he taught us to pray for a time
(Matt 6:10), when he will return in glory as universal
king to restore his kingdom on earth (Rev 20-22). It is,
therefore, very important for Christians to
understand God’s plan of salvation and see how we
can be part of the grand narrative of God’s kingdom
rule on earth.
