This essay focuses on Jesus' understanding of the term kingdom of God as reflected in the Synoptic Gospels. Advancing from the viewpoint that he used it as a master symbol for the new reality which he proclaimed during his public ministry, the following aspects are discussed in this regard: Jesus’ view of himself, God, others, time and place. Throughout the essay attention is paid to Jesus’ activities in creating an encompassing new reality with new ‘borders’, which differed radically from the world views of the Jewish religious leaders of his day.
