Jesus started his ministry by saying, "repent and be baptized, for the kingdom of God is here." That was a loaded thing to say. Every Jew longed for the kingdom of God to come, but Jesus had a different idea of what that looked like. When he taught on the kingdom, he did not give a lecture or a sermon, he told stories. The kingdom is like.... a farmer, a judge, a baker, and so on. Jesus wants to give us eyes to see how is reign has come. But it all starts with the Parable of the Sower.
