C-New Wave

crux-2We must now examine the specific relationship between the Kingdom and the church,
accepting the circle of Jesus’ disciples as the incipient church if not yet the church itself . The solution to this problem will depend upon one’s basic definition of the kingdom. If the
dynamic concept of the kingdom is correct, it is never to be identified with the church. The
Kingdom is primarily the dynamic reign or kingly rule of God and derivative, the sphere in which the rule is experienced. In biblical idiom, the kingdom is not identified with its subjects.They are the people of God’s rule who enter it, live under it and are governed by it. The church is the community of the kingdom but never the kingdom itself. Jesus’ disciples belong to the  Kingdom as the kingdom belongs to them’ but they are not the kingdom the kingdom is the rule of God’ the church is a society of women and men…………G. E Ladd
