B-61 KOREAN - The Core Message of Jesus' Preaching and Works was God's Kingdom
THIS WORKSHOP IN KOREAN LANGUAGE: God’s Kingdom was the core message of Jesus’ preaching and works. Actually, he understood that his mission was for God’s Kingdom. He went around all of Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the Gospel of the Kingdom, and curing every disease and illness among the people. (Mt 4:23) Afterward, he journeyed from one town and village to another, preaching the Good news of the Kingdom of God and accompanying him were the Twelve (Lk 8:1) This is not the end of story… Jesus gave the same mission to his disciples when he sent them out: Cure the sick in it and say to them, ‘The Kingdom of God is at hand for you.’ (Lk 10:9)
