Download this episode

In this episode we present an introduction to the “kingdom of God” as understood by a first-century Jew: the Davidic, messianic kingdom as presented by common Jewish expectation at the time.  Beginning with 2 Samuel 7 and the prophets then moving through the Targums and other Second Temple literature, we present a brief survey of the kingdom of God and the Jewish apocalyptic themes that accompanied the expectation of that kingdom.
