2 This Year Theme – “Gospel of the Kingdom of God” Key Question – “Why is the Kingdom of God ‘good news?’” Old Testament – – What is the Kingdom supposed to be like? – How do we know if the Kingdom has come? New Testament – – What is the Kingdom like now? – When will the Kingdom come?

3 Last Week Revelation You can understand it Unveils the cosmic reality of the Kingdom of heaven Symbols and numbers John Described himself as a “brother,” a “partner in tribulation,” a “partner in the kingdom” and one who was “enduring patiently… in Christ” Seven Churches of Asia Seven actual churches, but represent the entire Church John is telling them how to live as brothers in the Kingdom of God while enduring tribulation with the patience of Christ. Seven threats that come against the Church to keep them from worshiping Jesus: Not loving each other Persecution/death from other religions False teaching to lead us astray False teaching for financial gain Persecution/causing us to doubt the truth Appearing to be “on fire” be really being dead because we lack works Persecution of thinking we need nothing
