Jesus, The Kingdom, and The Gospel

The men’s group I attend is launching a study of the Gospel of Mark. I’m looking forward to gaining a better understanding of how the Kingdom of God which bursts into history in the ministry of Jesus is expressed as The Gospel in the New Testament epistles and lived out in the ministry of the church.  I just ran across a great interview which was useful to me as I start thinking more seriously than previously about the meaning of The Kingdom and The Gospel.  The video is of an interview of a theologian and teacher whom I have come to respect.  Below is some biographical info on him from Wikipedia.

N. T. Wright

N. T. Wright

Nicholas Thomas Wright, more popularly known as N.T.Wright.  He is an Anglican bishop and a leading New Testament scholar. He served as the Bishop of Durham in the Church of England from 2003 until his retirement in 2010. He is currently Research Professor of New Testament and Early Christianity at St Mary’s College, University of St Andrews in Scotland.

Among modern New Testament scholars, Wright is an important proponent of traditional views on theological matters including Christ’s bodily resurrection and second coming. Further he has expressed strenuous opposition both to the ordination of openly gay Christians and the blessing of same sex partnerships and marriages as occurs in the Episcopal Church (United States).

Anyway, HERE is the link to an interview with Dr. Wright I believe you will appreciate.
