The Kingdom of God is the Very Person of Jesus Christ and Our Becoming Him

It has everything to do with the “Proclamation of the Kingdom – the Call to Conversion” and the text (#18) of “Mission of the Redeemer:” (quoting Lumen Gentium #5: “Above all…. the kingdom is made manifest in  the very person of Christ, Son of God and Son of Man, who came ‘to serve and  to give his life as a ransom for many [Mk 10. 45]. The kingdom of God  is not a concept, a doctrine, or a program subject to free interpretation, but is before all else a person with the face and and name of Jesus of Nazareth, the image of the invisible God.”
