More on the kingdom …

In addition to “kingdom of God” you will also found the phrase “kingdom of Heaven.” This phrase occurs nowhere in the Bible except in Matthew’s Gospel. It is a reverent Jewish way of avoiding saying “God” too often. So “kingdom of heaven” does not tell us WHERE the kingdom is.
