Christians As Kingdom Citizens. In approaching this topic you should review key features of how Keller, Fee and Lunde have, in this week’s material, encouraged us to think about the Kingdom of God.
- Jonathan Lunde, Following Jesus, the Servant King: A Biblical Theology of Covenantal Discipleship. Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 2010 (ISBN-13: 978-0310286165)
- Keller, Timothy. Jesus the King: Understanding the Life and Death of the Son of God. New York: Riverhead, 2013 (ISBN-13: 978-1594486661). Edition: Reprint.
- Write an initial post in which you describe what it means for Jesus to be the King, the one who ushers in the Kingdom of God. Based on your reading so far, as well as the video by Fee ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qV0jqooBA6w ), how would you describe what Jesus means when he speaks of the Kingdom of God? What might it look like to live in God’s Kingdom today, and how might this differ from many popular assumptions about what it means to be a “Christian,” or to be “saved”?
