“Hi, Pastor John. The whole weight of the teaching of Jesus elsewhere seems to be in favor of saying, ‘Lo, the Kingdom of God is among you.'" 27 I agree. Marshall says, "Jesus is speaking of the presence of the kingdom of God among men, possibly as something within their grasp if they will only take hold of it.".
