1) The "Kingdom of God" or "Kingdom of Heaven" is at the very core of the teachings of both John the Baptist and Jesus, especially in the Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke. Jesus only hinted at the nature of the Kingdom in parables, so the details are shrouded in mystery (and in theological controversy.) In essence, it is a spiritual kingdom populated by the body of people who, through faith and obedience, have found favor with God and made God sovereign over their lives. In this context, those people who have entered the Kingdom are the same ones who will inherit the eternal life promised in other books of the New Testament.

Which one of these things did Jesus compare the value of the Kingdom to?

A rich gold mine

A treasure hidden in a field

The altar of the temple

A majestic sailing ship

2) Which of these did Jesus compare the earthly nature of the Kingdom to?

A field of wheat and weeds

A basket of loaves and fishes

A field of rocks and diamonds

A field of corn and barley

4) In the Parable of the Unmerciful Servant, Matthew 18:23-35, Jesus told of a servant who owed his king more money than he was able to pay. The king took pity on him and cancelled the debt. However, when another man owed this servant a debt, the servant had him thrown in prison. What is the moral of this parable.

We cannot enter the Kingdom of God unless we cancel all debts we are owed.

God is merciful, but men are not.

We cannot belong to the Kingdom of God unless we truly forgive those who have sinned against us.
