Luke 17:20-37, The Rejected King Will Return in Judgment

In the sermon text for this Lord’s Day, Pharisees asked Jesus about the coming kingdom. Jesus’ reply was surprising: the kingdom is among you because the king stands before you. He went on to explain to the disciples that before the kingdom is established, he must suffer and die. But he assured them that he would return one day in glory and majesty, executing judgment on those who reject him.
