SERMON TOPIC: The kingdom of God - Part 2 - Persecution and heresy
Speaker: Gavin Paynter
Date: 28 October 2007
Topic Groups: PROPHECY, KINGDOM OF GOD, PARABLES
Jesus taught 7 consecutive parables in Matthew 13 about the kingdom. The parables, if understood, reveal the secrets of “the kingdom of heaven” (Matt 13:10-11). The 7 parables refer to 7 church ages. The second parable of 'The Wheat and the Weeds' covers the period from approximately 100 - 300 AD or the 'Persecuted Church'.
