The Case for Jesus Course Introduction: Jesus and the Kingdom of God (Part 5 of 5)

< Watch Part 4


In this fifth and final intro video to Dr. Brant Pitre's set, The Case for Jesus: The Reliability of the Gospels and the Jewish Roots of Jesus' Divinity, Dr. Pitre discusses Jesus' most commonly referenced terms: The Kingdom of God and the Son of Man.

Most people today hear this phrase and think of heaven. However, as a first century Jew this isn't the first thing that would come to mind. Mark says in the beginning of his Gospel, after John was arrested, that Jesus began preaching that the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the Gospel. In Matthew 10, Jesus also commands his disciples to proclaim the coming of the Kingdom of Heaven in Matthew 10. In Luke 11, Jesus, when casting out demons, says the Kingdom of God has come upon you. And, even in John's Gospel, when Jesus is speaking with Nicodemus, Jesus says that unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. 

So what is this Kingdom of God that Jesus is preaching to first century Jews? What category or categories would they have been operating on to contextualize this phrase of Jesus? Well, if you go back to the Old Testament and look for the phrase "Kingdom of God," you will not find it with the exception of the Book of Daniel. So Jesus is specifically referring to the Danielic Kingdom. So, in this video, Dr. Brant Pitre goes back and provides a context for what the Kingdom of God looks like in Daniel and how Daniel predicted the precise time of the coming of this Divine Messiah which is precisely the time the Jesus steps on to the scene.

In a second section, Dr. Pitre answers the question of why, if Jesus is the Danielic Son of Man and is the king of the fifth kingdom from Daniel, why do people still reject him. Interestingly, it's tied directly to how Jesus himself describes the Kingdom of God in the parables in the Gospels about the Kingdom.

The Nature of Man, the Nature of the Fall

This program provides great insight into the nature of Man and the nature of the Fall. All is well, the New Adam has conquered.

The Best Study Hands Down!!!

If you want facts, this book is for you. However, to love God is to know God, and this book will deepen your relationship with Jesus regardless of what stage you're in. Just watch what the Truth does to your heart. Dr. Pitre has become my absolute favorite to read and listen to for studying scripture. I’m amazed every time and can’t get enough! I will be reading The Case for Jesus a second time to take notes for better cognition. I can’t recommend this book enough, you will Not be disappointed.
