The Kingdom

In Mark 1:14-15, John the Baptist is delivered over to Herod and his role as forerunner to Jesus in Mark’s gospel is over. Jesus takes center stage by announcing the time of fulfillment has come, the kingdom of God is at hand. Jesus enters into his home country of Galilee moving from a place of isolation to the place where His message will be head by many of his countrymen. Jesus’ message is simple: repent and believe the good news.
