The nation Israel was waiting. Waiting for centuries for the kingdom of God to be established and all God's promises of salvation and deliverance to be fulfilled. When Jesus came preaching that the kingdom was at hand many were excited, but they didn't understand. THings were not unfolding as they had expected. As Jesus preaches to the crowds in Galilee He uses parables to teach on the nature of the kingdom of God. In this sermon we will look at five important principles that emerge as we consider Jesus' teaching on this subject.
