Bulletin Article 1/14/2018


"Truly I tell you, among those born of women there has not risen anyone greater than John the Baptist; yet whoever is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he."          Matthew 11:11

Jesus was a fan of John the Baptist. Sounds like he voted him MVP of all history, at least up to that point in time.

What Jesus said next gets my attention. "Whoever Is least In the kingdom Of heaven Is greater than John." That piques my interest in the definition of the kingdom of heaven. What is Jesus talking about?

We make a big mistake when we talk about something Jesus said without some deeper Bible study. Very casually someone might assume this is about going to heaven after the judgement. Look up "the kingdom of heaven is like" and follow the parables you find.

The concept of the kingdom of heaven is very "now!" This kingdom dimension to our lives is worth the study time to understand. We need to make sure our personal frame of reference includes much more than we can see!
