Matthew 4:17

King James Version

17 From that time 

Jesus began to preach, 

and to say, 


for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

What is the "kingdom of heaven"?

What does the Bible say?

Genesis 1:6-8

King James Version

6 And God said, 

Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, 

and let it divide the waters from the waters.

7 And God made the firmament,

 and divided the waters 

which were under the firmament 

from the waters which were above the firmament: 

and it was so.

8 And God called the firmament Heaven. 

And the evening and the morning were the second day.

Daniel 2:44

King James Version

44 And in the days of these kings 

shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, 

which shall never be destroyed: 

and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, 

but it shall break in pieces 

and consume all these kingdoms, 

and it shall stand for ever.

Daniel 7:27

King James Version

27 And the kingdom and dominion, 

and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, 

shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, 

whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,

 and all dominions shall serve and obey him.

Matthew 13:47-50

King James Version

47 Again, 

the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, 

that was cast into the sea, 

and gathered of every kind:

48 Which, when it was full, 

they drew to shore, 

and sat down, 

and gathered the good into vessels, 

but cast the bad away.

49 So shall it be at the end of the world: 

the angels shall come forth, 

and sever the wicked from among the just,

50 And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: 

there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

Matthew 16:18-19

King James Version

18 And I say also unto thee, 

That thou art Peter, 

and upon this rock I will build my church; 

and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

19 And I will give unto thee 

the keys of the kingdom of heaven: 

and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth 

shall be bound in heaven: 

and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth 

shall be loosed in heaven.

Matthew 19:21-24

King James Version

21 Jesus said unto him, 

If thou wilt be perfect, 

go and sell that thou hast, 

and give to the poor, 

and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: 

and come and follow me.

22 But when the young man heard that saying, 

he went away sorrowful: 

for he had great possessions.

23 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, 

Verily I say unto you, 

That a rich man shall hardly enter 

into the kingdom of heaven.

24 And again I say unto you, 

It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, 

than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

Matthew 23:13

King James Version

13 But woe unto you, 

scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! 

for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: 

for ye neither go in yourselves, 

neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.

Matthew 25:14-15

King James Version

14 For the kingdom of heaven 

is as a man travelling into a far country, 

who called his own servants, 

and delivered unto them his goods.

15 And unto one he gave five talents, 

to another two, and to another one; 

to every man according to his several ability; 

and straightway took his journey.

Revelation 21:1

King James Version

21 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: 

for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; 

and there was no more sea.

Revelation 21:2

King James Version

2 And I John saw the holy city, 

new Jerusalem,

 coming down from God out of heaven, 

prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

We noticed apostle Matthew used the words "kingdom of heaven" here.

Time to turn to "kingdom of God" on the next post.
