One of the most confusing and misunderstood topics in Scripture is the “kingdom of heaven.” And yet Jesus says that it is the reason for his entire mission: “I must preach the kingdom of God to the other cities also, for I was sent for this purpose.” (Luke 4:43) What does this mean?
I heard an outstanding talk on this topic today by David Pileggi, a scholar who lives in Jerusalem. It was given at Narkis Church on January 26, 2008. See this link:
Narkis Church has a tradition of having different speakers every week. Several excellent scholars give messages there regularly, including David Pileggi, Randall Buth, Gary Alley, Sharon Alley, Brian Kvasnica, Jonathan Miles, Steve Notley, and Halvor Ronning. Not everyone who speaks there is interested in the Hebraic context of Christianity, but many are.
