John 8:28 So Jesus said, “When you have lifted up the Son of Man, then you will realize that I am he, and that I do nothing on my own, but I speak these things as the Father instructed me.
John 8:29 And the one who sent me is with me; he has not left me alone, for I always do what is pleasing to him.”
John 8:30 As he was saying these things, many believed in him.
The poor are the first folks the Kingdom is given to. Shouldn’t surprise us then that the “rich” are the ones who will find the Kingdom most difficult to attain. Why is that? Jesus walks us thru a complicated but not so complicated theology of the Kingdom…
