The Kingdom of God Paper Part I: Biblical Passages
Identify eight major passages on the Kingdom of God that are located in the Bible. A passage is not a single verse or an entire book. A passage is a group of verses that are usually between a paragraph and a chapter long. Of the eight passages, two must be from the Old Testament, three from the Gospels and Acts, two from the New Testament Epistles, and one from the book of Revelation. Make sure to choose passages that provide extensive or foundational information about the Kingdom of God.
Here are some strategic ways you can choose passages that provide extensive or foundational information about the Kingdom of God:
- For the Old Testament passages, choose passages that provide a description of the coming Kingdom of God.
- For the Gospels and Acts, choose passages that focus on Jesus’s teaching on the Kingdom of God as well as on how his life, death, and resurrection inaugurated the Kingdom of God.
- For the Epistles, choose passages that show the relationship between the inaugurated Kingdom of God and the church, and how the church should live in light of the inaugurated kingdom.
- For the book of Revelation, choose a passage that shows the Kingdom of God was inaugurated through Jesus’s life, death, and resurrection, or passages that show the consummation of the kingdom at his return
