Certain chapters really had quite a profound effect on my thinking, as I realized the inadequacy of my own understanding and application. My o This exploration of Jesus’ teaching of Kingdom of God is written with gosel clarity and very easy to navigate through, and is such an important subject because its teaching needs to be pieced together and properly interpreted to be properly understood. My only real elddon is that I would have enjoyed an even fuller and more in-depth exploration that what is given, but what is given is very good and very helpful indeed.

Feb 06, Luke Bray rated it really liked it. Ladd’s book has significantly shaped my understanding of the Kingdom of Gkspel. For years, the term “kingdom of God” had kinbdom very ambiguous and difficult to wrap my hand around.

He carefully and clearly explains his understanding of Kingdom theology in this little volume.

The Gospel of the Kingdom: Scriptural Studies in the Kingdom of God

The Biblical concept of eternity does not preclude the reality of time. The terms aion and kosmos are not interchangeable and must be understood in their original sense. The two ages are separated by the return of Jesus Christ and His resurrection from the dead. The Contrast of the Two Ages 1.


The Current Age is dominated by evil, wickedness, and rebellion against the will of God. The Current Age is hostile of the Gospel, and men often conform to this Age instead of surrendering to the Gospel of the Kingdom of God. The God of this Age 1. God has permitted Satan to exercise authority and power throughout the duration of this Age. The root of evil in this Age: The Current Age and the Age to Come are not on equal levels.

There will be no world wide conversion prior to the Return of Jesus 4. People will suffer because they no longer belong to the Current Age and are now subject to its hostility. The Kingdom of God will never be fully realized apart from the personal, glorious, and victorious Return of Jesus Christ. The resurrection of the Lord Jesus is the beginning of the final resurrection, which establishes hope for the coming of the Kingdom of God. God has invaded the realm of Satan 2. The blessings of the Messianic Age are now available to those who embrace the Kingdom of God.

Before the end of the age, God has entered into history in the person of Christ to work among men, to bring to them the life and blessings of His Kingdom. Something, which has been kept secret through, times eternal but is now disclosed.

The Kingdom of God is here but not with irresistible power. The Kingdom of God has come to people and yet people can reject it.

There will be a day of judgment that will bring the final separation between the righteous and the wicked. The Kingdom of God is present among humanity but in a form not previously revealed. The Kingdom of God is here among humanity, but in a form that was never expected. The Kingdom of God may seem insignificant or small, but it will eventually fill the earth. The Kingdom is a gift that cannot be earned and it is extremely costly. The Kingdom of God has come in an unexpected manner, but it will bring about the Age to Come and the judgment.

Life is the Kingdom of God means going about every day in the present evil Age living the life of heaven.
