The kingdom of God is a mysterious but central aspect of the Christian faith.
Out of the 40 parables Jesus taught to his disciples and to others within earshot, 18 specifically were about the kingdom. In the four gospels, the phrases kingdom of heaven or kingdom of God are referenced 97 times!
Hein van Wyk, part of DNA’s Global Leadership Team and an excellent teacher, gave perhaps the most thorough explanation that we have seen of the kingdom of God at the 2013 DNA Global Forum in Brazil. Here, you’ll find his presentation in two parts. Please watch and share with your friends and colleagues!
