    1.The passage explains that Jesus is there to help the people who are in need and who are suffering. Which shows the arrival of the Kingdom of God. It shows us when Jesus told the followers of Joseph “the blind regain sight, the lame walk, the poor have the good news proclaimed to them……”
    2.

  2. 1.) The passage explains the kingdom of God through the miracles God has given to the people, he removed their sufferings and pain.
    2.) The Kingdom of God is within us because if we choose to do good we will and we won’t do bad things.

  3. Andrew Sy says:

    It says that when God comes, there will be equality, the poor will not suffer, the suffering wil rise, the blind will see. It describes the kingdom of God as a great place, a place wuth no suffering, a place where we are all happy. I think that the kingdom of God is already present, in each and every one of us, we all just have to bring it out.

  4. 1. I think the passage explain the arrival of the kingdom of God as a place that people can be heal, from ill on the surface to the ill deep inside the heart.
    2. In my view it is in a place that people can get peaceful anywhere, if you can be peaceful

  5. 1. It shows how the people are cured of their illnesses or from their disability. People being cured and spreading the good news.

    2. I think the kingdom of God is within all of us who choose to help others in anyway they can and making them happy

  6. 1.) The passage explains that the Kingdom of God has been present ever since Jesus’ time. Here, Jesus performed miracles and told parables in order for the people to better understand the arrival of the Kingdom of God. The parables clarified the miracles, while the miracles concretized the parables, one working together with the other. In the text, Jesus rid the people of pain, suffering, and abuses, all which are not present in God’s Kingdom.

    2.) The Kingdom of God is becoming present in today’s world because of people’s actions. We are getting closer to building God’s Kingdom as we work to rid ourselves, others, and the world, of suffering, abuse and pain. We are doing so by our little actions, to our larger ones, for the greater good.
