The Upside Down Kingdom

The key theme in the ministry and teaching of Jesus is the kingdom of God, also referred to by Matthew as the kingdom of heaven. Jesus’ announcement that “the kingdom of God has come near, repent and believe in the good news” (Mark 1: 15) explains the primary reason for his ministry and mission. The kingdom of God is the range of God’s effective will. It is an advancing realm that appears wherever what God wants done, is done. Jesus announced that the blessings of the kingdom are accessible to everyone, regardless of our condition or situation.
In this series we’ll explore how the kingdom of God points to an inverted, upside-down
way of life that challenges the accepted social order. Jesus’ teaching on the kingdom and its practice, challenged the norms of ancient Palestinian society and it continues to do so today, more than two thousand years later. In Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount, we see the upside-down values of the kingdom on full display, beginning with the Beatitudes.
