When we pray in the Our Father, “Thy Kingdom come,” what are we praying for?
Jesus most preached and taught not about love, but about the Kingdom of God. “After John (the Baptist) had been arrested, Jesus came to Galilee proclaiming the gospel of God: ‘This is the time of fulfillment. The kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel’” (Mark 1:15).
Most of Jesus’ parables were about the Kingdom, which often begins, “The Kingdom of God is like . . .” “Knowledge of the mysteries of the kingdom of God . . . are made known through parables” (Luke 8:10).
