Gospel of Matthew – The Seed of the Kingdom


We have mentioned that the gospel according to Matthew presents the gospel of the kingdom. In this Bible study we want to see that the kingdom is established and developed through the seed of the kingdom.

First we will see the parable of the sower. Then we want to emphasize that Christ the King is literally within His believers – as opposed to only being in them figuratively. This is very important, especially since we conclude this Bible study seeing the expansion of Christ as the king. That’s right, “The expansion of Christ”. How can this be? What does this mean?

If you have a soft heart toward the Lord, we believe you will be enlightened through this Bible study and even enter into the experience of the kingdom.

Gospel of Matthew – You Therefore Shall be Perfect as Your Heavenly Father is Perfect


For Matthew Chapter 5, the outline in the Recovery Version of the Bible opens up to us “The Decree of the Kingdom’s Constitution concerning…

1) The nature of the kingdom people,
2) The influence of the kingdom people,  and
3) The law of the kingdom people.   

We encourage you to read this whole chapter. The humanity presented by our Lord Jesus in this chapter is the highest humanity. Many of us would wonder if what is found here is even attainable.  The last verse tells us how our Lord feels about this. It is an unwavering statement. 

You therefore shall be perfect as your heavenly Father is perfect. – Matthew 5:48

The context for this verse is love, and love is God’s nature.  In this Bible study, we want to linger on this unwavering and now resounding statement and enter into its being worked out in us. Ready? Let’s go.

Gospel of Matthew – The Gospel of the Kingdom


What is the gospel of the kingdom?

First, it seems that many people treat the word “gospel” as “truth”, or “accepted doctrine”. But actually, gospel means good news. We are bringing good news to the University of Utah! Second, is the good news of-the-kingdom the same as the-good-news in general? No, the “gospel of the kingdom” is used in particular to denote a certain gospel. Jesus Christ is God the creator who became a man. Coming as a man, he preached this gospel.

From that time Jesus began to proclaim and to say, Repent, for the kingdom of the heavens has drawn near. – Matthew 4:17

And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole inhabited earth for a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come. – Matthew 24:14
