The Kingdom of God in the Parables

Matthew 13:24 Jesus told them another parable: The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field.

1. There is a kingdom.

Matthew 13:31 He told them another parable: The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his field. Matthew 13:33 He told them still another parable: The kingdom of heaven is like yeast that a woman took and mixed into about sixty pounds of flour until it worked all through the dough. Matthew 13:44 The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field.

2. The kingdom has a king.

3. Jesus has set the terms of entrance into the kingdom.

Matthew 13:45 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls. Matthew 13:47 Once again, the kingdom of heaven is like a net that was let down into the lake and caught all kinds of fish.

4. The kingdom in the parables: God’s rule over God’s people.

Notes:

The gospel of the kingdom will be preached to the whole world. Matthew 24:14
