4 John appeared, baptizing in the wilderness and proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. Ephesians 1:10
as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth.
But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law,
“Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”
testifying both to Jews and to Greeks of repentance toward God and of faith in our Lord Jesus Christ.
From that time Jesus began to preach, saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”
‘Even the dust of your town that clings to our feet we wipe off against you. Nevertheless know this, that the kingdom of God has come near.’
Heal the sick in it and say to them, ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you.’
And proclaim as you go, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’
