The Gospel of the Kingdom Scripture Verses KJV


Lord’s Library editors share the Gospel of the Kingdom Scripture verses from the King James Bible to grow your faith in Jesus Christ.

The Gospel of the Kingdom is the proclamation of the good news concerning God’s rule and reign over all creation. It is closely associated with the ministry of Jesus Christ and serves as a core theme throughout the New Testament. See the following key Bible verses which paint a vivid picture of the Gospel of the Kingdom:

  • Matthew 4:17: “From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”

Jesus inaugurates His earthly ministry by declaring the nearness of the Kingdom of Heaven. He calls people to repentance, highlighting the need for a change of heart and a turning towards God’s rule.

  • Matthew 25:14: “For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods.”

Here, Christ speaks of the global proclamation of the Gospel of the Kingdom as a prerequisite for the end times.

  • Mark 1:14-15: “Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.”

Here, Jesus reiterates the imminence of the Kingdom of God and calls for both repentance and belief in the Gospel. He emphasizes that the time prophesied in the Old Testament is now being fulfilled in His ministry.

  • Luke 4:43: “And he said unto them, I must preach the kingdom of God to other cities also: for therefore am I sent.”
  • Acts 1:3: “To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God:”

In the Book of Acts, the Gospel of the Kingdom continues to be a central theme as Christ teaches His disciples about the Kingdom of God.
