Doing The Kingdom of God Through Symbolic Actions

Kingdom of God 1.001.jpeg

The Kingdom of God is a fascinating topic that we find Jesus announcing throughout His ministry. However, this announcement was often illustrated through healings, strange actions, and cryptic stories. The Kingdom of God that Jesus portrayed contrasted the kingdom of God most Jews imagined. Just as Moses was the deliverer whom God sent for the Israelites in Egyptian slavery so God sent Jesus’ to deliver, but not only Jews…. Jesus launched the saving rule of God to deliver humanity from its slavery to the real enemy of the world, Satan. This launching was expressed through many symbolic actions and usually followed up by explanations, sometimes with hidden meaning, but always about the kingdom of God.
