How the Kingdom of God is Revealed, Cultivated and Advanced

Jesus expands his teaching on the Kingdom of God through a further series of parables. Most of his teaching about the Kingdom of God was given in parables which played a dual role:

To those hungry for more the parables were the door which opened hearers to the Kingdom of God.

But to those who were on the outside, who didn’t want to know Jesus, the parables served as a barrier, closing access to the Kingdom.

In this message we learn that the Kingdom of God is:

  • Revealed through hearing
  • Cultivated by God
  • Advanced in power
