The Kingdom and Gospel of our Lord, part 10…

 The apostle Peter preached the kingdom

Acts 2:38-39 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of [or from] the Holy Spirit. 39 For the promise [to inherit the kingdom, Rom.4:13; Jam.2:5] is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.

Peter’s main focus in His teaching was the coming kingdom

2 Peter 1:15-18 Moreover I will endeavour that ye may be able after my decease to have these things always in remembrance. 16 For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty (Mt.16:28-17:2). 17 For he received from God the Father honour and glory (the characteristics of a King), when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. 18 And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with him in the holy mount (the Son of man coming in his kingdom, Mt.16:28).

Philip preached the kingdom of God

Acts 8:5,12 Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria, andpreached Christ unto them. 12 But when they believed Philippreaching the things concerning the kingdom of God, and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women.

The apostle Paul’s ministry was centered around the gospel of the kingdom of God

From the beginning

Acts 14:21 And when they (Paul & Barnabus) had preached the gospel to that city, and had taught many, they returned again to Lystra, and to Iconium, and Antioch, 22 Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.

Acts 19:8 And he went into the synagogue, and spake boldly for the space of three months, disputing and persuading the things concerning the kingdom of God.

To the end

Acts 28:23,30-31 And when they had appointed him a day, there came many to him into his lodging; to whom he expounded and testified the kingdom of God, persuading them concerning Jesus, both out of the law of Moses, and out of the prophets, from morning till evening. 30 And Paul dwelt two whole years in his own hired house, and received all that came in unto him, 31 Preaching the kingdom of God, and teaching those things which concern the Lord Jesus Christ, with all confidence, no man forbidding him.
