When Jesus came to earth, He clearly and boldly proclaimed the good news of the kingdom of God. Yet, perhaps none of His teachings has been more misunderstood than this one. Some have thought of our Lord as simply a great moral leader whose aim was to help us all become better people. When we're good enough, according to this view, the kingdom of God will be established in our midst once and for all. Others see Jesus as a revolutionary with a fiery message of political upheaval. For them, the kingdom of God will come when unjust social and political structures are overthrown. In truth, the kingdom Jesus Christ proclaimed and initiated was more profound and more radical than anything any man has ever envisioned. As Dr. Lloyd-Jones shows conclusively from the Scriptures, God the Son came to earth to redeem rebellious humanity, save them from their sins, and make them the people of God. Indeed, the kingdom of God comes to us in the person and work of Jesus Christ Himself--His substitutionary death on the cross and His triumph over death and sin. Here and here alone is true hope for a lost and confused world.
