At thirty years of age, Jesus launched his ministry with the words “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”
Yet even before then, his life pulsated with the mystery and revelation of the kingdom of God—still the most critical and yet misunderstood component of the Christian faith and the life of anyone who desires to follow Jesus.
In this electrifying little book, author and speaker Rachel Starr Thomson argues that King and kingdom are inextricably interlinked: to see one is to see the other. In her lyrical, accessible style, she guides readers through Jesus’s early life as chronicled in the gospel of Matthew—an ancient book that bridges Old and New Testaments and reveals king, and kingdom, within their prophetic and historical context.
Every day, millions of Christians pray “Your kingdom come.” Let this journey with Jesus deepen your understanding and practice of those words as you see Jesus in a whole new light, and with him, discover the astonishing reality of the kingdom of heaven on earth.
Rachel Starr Thomson lives, writes, and drinks too much coffee in the Niagara Region of Ontario. She is an international speaker with 1:11 Ministries and the author of thirty-some works of fiction and nonfiction.
