1. CONTENT The Central message is the Kingdom, the Good News as announced by Jesus 2. OBJECTIVE: SALVATION FOR ALL The preacher from Galilee began his ministry with a well defined Proclamation. (KERYGMA)
THE KERYGMA OF JESUS 3. METHOD Jesus was both the message and messenger > He lived what he preached and preached what he lived (There was no contradiction in Him) Jesus = Gospel=Evangelizer, the Good news. Eg. David Hume and Pastor Brown)

The Style of preaching is through PARABLES. Many literary forms, Symbolic Actions. Allegory and hyperbole. The Kingdom is not reduced to the Land of Israel. Not territorial. But lies in the SALVIFIC ACTION OF GOD, IE. REIGN OF GOD. There is a Response of Faith. CONVERSION AND OBEDIENCE TO THE LOVING GOD.
The Style of preaching is through PARABLES. Kingdom is mentioned 162 times in the Synoptics. In John alone the word is mentioned 92 times. Kingdom is not a concept bound by space and time. But bound by the SOVEREIGNTY OF GOD OVER THE PEOPLE who establishes the ideal rule of the Reign of God. Different aspects of the Kingdom are explained through PARABLES.
