Some OLD Voices on the Kingdom of God

  1. Ladd, Matt 12:29 (How can one enter a strong man’s house and plunder his goods, unless he first binds the strong man?  Then indeed he may plunder his goods – embodies “the essential theology fo the Kingdom of God.  Instead of waiting until the end of the age to reveal his kingdly power and destroy satanic evil, Jesus declares that Go0d has acted in his kingly power to curb the power of Satan.  In other words, God’s Kingdom in Jesus’ teaching has a twofold manifestation: at the end fo the age to destroy Satan, and in Jesus’ mission to bind Satan” (63-64).
  2. Goppelt: “I: 71: “The very heart of God’s reign is summed up in the relationship between God and people becoming whole.”
  3. Ridderbos: 20-21: “The coming of the kingdom is first of all the display of the divine glory, the re-assertion and maintenance of God’s rights on earth in their full sense.”
