To what extent do miracles complement Jesus teaching about the kingdom of God?
Jesus will apply his ransom sacrifice to humans on earth and lift from them the curse of inherited sin. He and his corulers will raise faithful mankind to perfection. Yes, humans will then enjoy the life that God originally purposed for them when he told Adam and Eve to multiply and fill the earth. Even death that resulted from Adam's sin will be no more! Thus, Jesus will have accomplished all that Jehovah asked of him. At the end of his Thousand Year Rule, Jesus will hand over the Kingdom and the perfected human family to his Father. Regarding this marvelous act of humility on Jesus' part, the apostle Paul wrote: "When all things will have been subjected to him, then the Son himself will also subject himself to the One who subjected all things to him, that God may be all things to everyone."-1 Corinthians 15:28. Clearly, Jesus plays a vital role in accomplishing God's glorious purposes. And as those purposes continue to unfold throughout eternity, he will live up completely to the description he gave of himself: "I am the way and the truth and the life."-John 14:6.

Islam teaches that God is one. He does not have parents or children, and there is none like Him.
Jesus said that the Kingdom of God is all the believers' true home. Roman Catholic Answer Our Blessed Lord said quite a lot about the Kingdom of God, as a matter of fac…t, it was the core of His teaching. In Mk 1:15, He announced that the Kingdom of God is at hand; in Luke 17:20,21, He says that the Kingdom of God is in our midst; and in John 3:3, He says that we must be born again to see the kingdom of God.

Yes, the Bible teaches that Jesus Christ IS God! Jesus is the true God 1 John 5:20 (KJV) And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding…, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.
Miracles show unique existence of a Creator (God), who can override scientific laws that govern our universe when He chooses, because He is the creator and master of those law…s and not a subject to them as we are. If there were no God who could work miracles, there could be no universe or life at all -- see articles and media at the referenced link for more information on miracles and what they reveal.
Parable, a form of illustration, was used by Jesus extensively in his teaching because it accomplished his goal. It was, and remains, a very effective teaching tool.(Matthew …13:34-35) . It : 1. holds the hearer's attention 2. gets us thinking 3. stirs our emotions 4. aids our memory and 5. works in any culture, at any time period. Teaching with illustrations (mental pictures) helps people get the sense of what's being taught, as it puts things in terms they are familiar with (ie: God is like a "father"(Luke 15:11-32), Jesus is like a "shepherd"(John 10:11-15), Faithful worshipers are like "sheep"(Luke 15:1-7), False religious leaders are like 'blind guides' (Matthew 23:24). It also: 6. motivates right-hearted ones to take action, and eliminates those who really have no interest in truth, as they can't be bothered to take the time to question things they don't understand(John 6:54, 60-66)(Mark 4:33, 34)(Matthew 13:13-15, 36)(Matthew 22:15-21) 7. provides a quiet, but clear, rebuke to those who need it, without opening up a clear line of retaliation. (Matthew 9:11-13)(Luke 7:36-50)(Luke 10:30-37) and 8. makes things out of our realm of understanding, understandable (such as the Kingdom of God(Luke 13:18, 19),(Matthew 13:3-8,18-23),(Matthew 13:24-30, 36-43, 47-50)(Matthew 13:31, 32; Mark 4:30-32)(Luke 17:6)(Luke 11:5-8)(Luke 13:1-9)(Daniel 2:31-35+44). As humans, we would have no way of relating to things in the spirit realm, unless someone put them in terms we were familiar with.
The wonderful news of the coming Kingdom of God is the heart and core of Jesus Christ's message for humanity. Jesus will return to earth and establish this Kingdom. He will be… the Ruler of the Kingdom of God - a literal Kingdom on Earth where He and His Saints will rule forever: Revelation 11:15 New King James Version (NKJV) Seventh Trumpet: The Kingdom Proclaimed15 Then the seventh angel sounded: And there were loud voices in heaven, saying, "The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!" This message has been delivered in the Old Testament as well: Daniel 2:44 New King James Version (NKJV) 44 And in the days of these kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed; and the kingdom shall not be left to other people; it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever. All of this will be given to those who love God and obey His Commands: Daniel 7:27 New King James Version (NKJV) 27 Then the kingdom and dominion, And the greatness of the kingdoms under the whole heaven, Shall be given to the people, the saints of the Most High. His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, And all dominions shall serve and obey Him.' Another Answer: The kingdom of God is where God's throne is, where He is worshiped and obeyed flawlessly by everyone there, that place can only be heaven. It is usually confused with the kingdom of heaven which refers to Christ's millennial kingdom, that is to be upon the earth.
With the birth, life and ministry of Jesus, it was the beginning of the end for Satan's rule of the world. When Jesus died on the cross the plan was completed. Satan was defea…ted, the sacrafice complete. It is now just a matter of time before Christ returns and rids the world of sin for eternity. He will then rule the new heaven and the new earth. It will be His rule, not that of the fallen angel Lucifer. It will truly be the Kingdom of God, at last.
1. Raised a man from the dead 2. Healed a blind man 3. Walked on water 4. Fed 5,000 from 5 loaves and 2 fish 5. Rose from the grave 6. Saved us from our sins 7. Pe…arl Marson Jesus did many miracles such as healing the sick, making the blind see, making paralyzed people walk and on one occasion, even rose someone from the dead! But the more important miracles are these, Jesus died for our sins. He took up the cross in the name of forgiving us for our sins. He came down to earth beause his father told him to. This is some pretty awesome stuff. He also is willing to bring sinners like you and me into heaven. That is the biggest miracle of all...
The Kingdom of God is the central message of the Bible - and so few realize or know of it. Consider this from Jesus referencing it: Luke 12:32 New King James Vers…ion (NKJV) 32 "Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom. The holy men and women of Scripture spoke of the establishing of God's Kingdom quite often and eloquently. It will be a literal spiritual transformation of all Christians into the family of God as His immortal sons and daughters for eternity (see 2 Corinthians 6:18). This is God's main focus (read Daniel 2:44, Isaiah 11:6-9; 35:1-7).
that he is the only way to God and that you should be saved basically Additional thoughts: God's Kingdom is a 'government' by God(Daniel 2:44) and Jesus is the king of that Ki…ngdom government(Isaiah 9:6)(Revelation 11:15) which will solve ALL of mankind's problems from war (Psalm 46:9; 72:7), to starvation (Psalm 72:16) to crime (Psalm 72:12-14) and all pain and suffering (Revelation 21:4). Because of it's import, Jesus spent most of his 3 1/2 year ministry, preaching and declaring the good news of the Kingdom of God(Luke 8:1)(Luke 9:11)(Luke 4:43), and teaching his 12 apostles to do the same(Matthew 24:14) (Matthew 28:19+20)(Luke 9:2)(Luke 16:16)(Acts 1:3). When he was on earth, Jesus said "the kingdom of God is in your midst"(NIV), or 'among you", because he was the representative of that Kingdom (Luke 17:20-21)though the religious leaders of his day did not want to accept that. At Matthew 19:24, Mark 10:23-25,and Luke 18:25 Jesus describes what would be needed to be approved for the Kingdom. He says that it will be easier for a camel to get through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to get into the kingdom of God, because of the tendency of the rich to become haughty and dependent on their riches, rather than God.....Whereas others who had been wrongdoers, but were humble enough to learn what God's will is and change their behavior, would be approved for the Kingdom because of their repentance and 'child-like' trust in God(Matthew 21:31-32)(Mark 10:14-16)(Luke 18:16-17) And once we know the truth about God's Kingdom, we must follow God's directions closely to get there(Luke 9:62). Jesus apostles did not understand when the Kingdom would take effect(Acts 1:6) and Jesus showed that alot of time would pass before it came(Luke 19:11-15), and that we would need signs to understand when it has arrived(Matthew 24:33)(Luke 21:29-31) The hope of ruling in that Kingdom was taken from the Jewish Nation as a whole, and given to a group who would obey God,(Matthew 21:42-43)(Hebrews 8:9) Jesus' followers (Luke 8:10). It was with this group that he made the covenant to serve with him in God's Kingdom(Luke 22:14-18)and be 'born again' spiritually(John 3:3-5)(Revelation 5:10)
Jesus didn't really use miracles to teach about His Father or The Kingdom Of Heaven.... he used a parable. Now, a parable is like a story, a story used to teach a lesson. He t…old the people so in a way he was a preacher. But like all good stories, these had messages and hidden symbols inside of them. Sometimes a thunder cloud would represent God but in other stories it would rain from the cloud and that would represent forgiveness or repent. So you see he told them stories about the goodness of the Lord and the beauty of The Kingdom Of Heaven.
This story relates how even though the shepherd has 100 sheep, when he loses one, he searches until he finds the last sheep, even if it means losing his life. This shows that …Jesus, the shepherd, will search out every lost person even at great cost.
The parables told by Jesus were earthly tories with a heavenly meaning in it. Like the Prodigal son in Luke. it is a story of a son who wastes all his money , and then retur…ns back home to the father.. The father who welcomes him back, is God and we are the son. God is waiting for us to all repent.
A few thoughts: In the Bible, Jesus taught that : *...God is his father (John 20:17)(Matthew 16:16)(Luke 1:35) (John 8:16-18) (John 8:54)(Matthew 20:23)(Revelation 3:2+12; …2 Corinthians 1:3+4)(John 16:28) and prayer to God was important to Jesus(Matthew 14:23) *...God sent Jesus to be a sacrifice for the sins of mankind (John 3:16)(Romans 5:8)(John 1:29 /Isaiah 53:7 /Matthew 26:28)(Romans 5:12+18; 6:23),to teach the truth(John 12:49) and break up the works of the devil(Hebrews 2:14) (1 John 3:8) *...all things are possible with God (Mark 10:27)(Luke 1:37)(Mark 13:32) *...learning about God and Jesus means our life(John 17:3) and God is looking for people who will then truthfully PRACTICE what they've learned(John 4:23) (Romans 10:2+3) *...it is possible to love God with our whole heart, mind and strength(Mark 12:30) because of the kind of person God is....God is LOVE (1 John 4:8) *...that God has a name (Matthew 6:9)(John 17:26) *...that God loves us, and as long as we put his will first in our lives, we will be blessed (Luke 12:6+7)(Matthew 6:31-33) (1 John 2:17) *...God has a specific way he wants to be worshiped(Matthew 7:13,14, 21-23) and will not accept man-made doctrines or hypocrisy(Matthew 15:1-9)(Titus 1:16)
In The Bible
in the Christian faith, he is the son of god
In Jesus Christ
By being holy himself in every way, for he is the son of God and the 'express image of his person'.
In The Bible
"As beutiful as the night sky and as loving as God himself." New Testament perspective:Jesus never gave a literal description of God's kingdom; he spoke of it in parable…s, figuratively likening it to other things. For examples of what Jesus said regarding the Kingdom, see Mark chapters 4 & 10, Luke 13 & 17, and John 3.
