Jesus & the Claims of the Kingdom

The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel (Mark 1:15).

“In Jesus Christ we witness the long-awaited vindication and effective demonstration of God’s kingship in the world. The coming of Christ is the climax of the whole history of redemption as recorded in the Scriptures. The rightful king has established a beachhead in his territory and calls on his subjects to press his claims ever farther in creation.”

~ Albert M. Wolters, Creation Regained 2nd ed. (Grand Rapids, Mi.: Eerdmans, 2005), 74.
