Jesus talks about the Kingdom of God more than anything. He talks about the Kingdom of God coming to earth...but what does that look like? We may think we know what the Kingdom of God is, but we may be thinking about it all wrong.
After Jesus raises from the grave, he gives his disciples a mission to spread his name to the ends of the earth and then ascends to Heaven. This is the beginnings of the Christian Church. The question is, what can we learn from this early church?
In our time at 30,000 feet we have seen God trying to bring us back to Him. This week, with His son Jesus coming to earth, we see his ultimate plan take shape. Alongside Jesus coming to die for us, he also came to live as an example for us.
As we continue on in our series of looking at the Bible from 30,000 feet, we come to the place where the Israelites are taken into captivity by Babylon. We will see some God’s temple destroyed, meet a guy named Daniel, and take a look at the prophetic dreams of a man named Ezekiel. Don’t miss this pivotal week in the story of the God as we start to hear about the coming king that will rule forever.
This week, our big picture view of the Bible from 30,000 ft will look at 6 stories from the book of Judges. We will see a cycle of turning away from God, punishment, repentance, salvation, and complacency play out over and over again through this book and talk about what it looks like for us to consistently follow Jesus instead of getting stuck in this cycle ourselves.
This week, our big picture view of the Bible from 30,000 ft starts with the birth of Moses and ends with death of his predecessor, Joshua. We will look at how Moses led the Israelites out of slavery in Egypt before passing leadership on to Joshua, who led them into a land of their own where they could be set apart for God.
