Kingship, Rule and Authority: A Study of the Parables in Matthew 13

The Parables of Jesus have a lot to teach us about how the kingship, rule and authority of God are breaking into this world. Recently, River Corner Church finished a Sunday morning series on the parables of Jesus that are found in Matthew 13. Our series explored the Parables of Jesus (in Matthew 13) and how they reveal the character of God and God's ways of bringing healing, restoration and reconciliation in the world.

The Kingdom of God is the invasive, subversive, and creative way that God’s presence, priorities, and power converge on and in our world. It is an invasion and God is looking for co-conspirators to bring about his insurrection of this world's ideas and that insurrection takes place through the conversion of people and paradigms. As co-conspirators, we get to collaborate with God, and the Spirit of God, to experience and bring about God’s presence, priorities, and power into every area and arena of life. As co-conspirators of the in-breaking of God's rule and reign, we see God's presence, priorities and power manifest through our commitment to compassion, signs and wonders, ethics and justice.

I invite you to listen to our Sunday morning series on the parables of Jesus in Matthew 13. Learn how these parables reveal the character of God and the methods that God uses to bring about healing, restoration and reconciliation in the world.
