Kingdom Come Miracles & the Kingdom of God / Gospels of Luke & Matthew About this Life Night Jesus came to proclaim the Good News of the Kingdom of God in our midst. He used parables to help us understand the Kingdom and performed miracles as a sign of the coming of the Kingdom. This Life Night will focus on the parables and miracles in the Gospels of Matthew and Luke. It starts with a humorous interruption by two characters leading into a “man on the street” video about miracles and kingdoms. The teaching for the night will break open the Gospels of Matthew and Luke. During the Break, the teens will have the opportunity to read and reflect on different miracle stories. Finally, the Send involves praying for God’s Kingdom to become more visible on Earth. Goal of This Night The goal of this night is to help the teens see how the Kingdom of God is proclaimed by Christ in His words (parables) and His actions (miracles), specifically in the Gospels of Matthew and Luke. The teens will see how miracles are still happening in their own lives and be given practical ways to apply Jesus’ teachings. Catechism # 512 - 667 Scripture Matthew 13:24 Matthew 20:0 Matthew 13:31 Matthew 32:0 Matthew 13:33 Matthew 18:1 -5 Matthew 19:16 -30 Matthew 22:1 -14 Luke 4:33 -37 Luke 5:12 -15 Luke 5:17 -26 Luke 8:22 -25 Luke 9:10 -17 Luke 18:35 -43 Luke 22:47 -53 Key Concepts Jesus came to proclaim the Kingdom of God in words (parables) and actions (miracles). Each is a small glimpse into the full reality of God’s Kingdom. Miracles always point to the greater reality of God – His power, forgiveness and love. Parables call us to think about God’s Kingdom in a new way. We are called to bring about the Kingdom of God today through our words and actions.
