Jesus introduced a Kingdom in the Synagogue in Nazareth saying that he came to:

“Preach the Good News, proclaim freedom, release the oppressed and proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor…‘Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.’”
(Luke 4:18-21).

And then in the sermon on the mount Jesus took the law as people knew it, fulfilled it –that is turned it upside down and explained it – and then inserted that law into the Kingdom he announced…and he told the people that all who seek will find, all who ask will receive, and those who knock…the door would be opened to them.

The Kingdom, Jesus was saying, was that close…just the thickness of a door away and available to any who simply knocked.

Something to think about…
