NEW TREASURES AS WELL AS OLD
Matthew 13:52 “He said to them, “therefore every teacher of the law who has been instructed about the kingdom of heaven is like the owner of a house who brings out of his storeroom new treasures as well as old.”
The person who understands Christ’s teaching about the kingdom of heaven has a new treasure. Christ’s instruction about His kingdom includes all the guidelines for faith and living in the world.
The kingdom is now.
Judgment is future and will come later.
The religious leaders were looking for a physical and temporal kingdom. They thought military rebellion would come and Jesus would rule physically on earth. They believed that was the kingdom. They were blind to the spiritual significance of the kingdom that Christ brought.
Anyone who understands and accepts God’s purpose has this new treasure.
