The kingdom of heaven is near

It was the message of John the Baptist: The kingdom of heaven is near. When John was arrested, Jesus started proclaiming the message in his place. Then Jesus taught all his disciples to spread the message everywhere they went. It's a message that people around the world are still waiting to hear: The kingdom of heaven is near.

(See Matthew 3:2, Matthew 4:17, and Matthew 10:7.)
