Chapter Summary

The two themes, the kingdom of God and the Son of Man, imply one another. The kingdom is the public theme of Jesus' ministry, what was spoken of openly and fully to anyone who would hear. The Son of Man was the esoteric theme, the explanation to those who responded to the message of the kingdom of how Jesus could know what he did. Jesus offered his contemporaries new insight into God as king, on the basis that his teaching concerning the kingdom would be confirmed by the Son of the Man in heaven. The challenge of understanding the Gospels involves making reasoned inferences in regard to the teaching of Jesus and the interpretations of his first followers.
