The Kingdom of God

 Introduction

Jesus’ teaching on the the kingdom is scattered throughout the first three gospels. It is not a structured set of teaching but a scattering of profound challenges to the way we see and live life. I have organised them along the structure of the Lord’s prayer which brings together most of the elements.


On this page is a short summary of Jesus teaching for each of the main elements. At that point there is a pointer to a page which will give a more exhaustive view.

Our Father

The King is also our Father. He invites us into relationship through prayer.

  1. What do you learn about this relationship with the Father through the prayer Jesus taught us?


 Matthew 6:7-13 "When you pray, don't babble on and on as people of other religions do. They think their prayers are answered merely by repeating their words again and again. Don't be like them, for your Father knows exactly what you need even before you ask him!9 Pray like this:


Our Father in heaven, may your name be kept holy. May your Kingdom come soon. May your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven. Give us today the food we need, and forgive us our sins, as we have forgiven those who sin against us. And don't let us yield to temptation, but rescue us from the evil one.



Hallowed by your name



Your Kingdom come



Your Will be done



Give us this day



Our Daily Bread



Forgive us


As we forgive


Lead us not into temptation



Deliver us from evil
