Ronald Sider on Jesus' gospel and messianic reign

Jesus' gospel includes the fact that the messianic reign has in fact began and there is now a reconciled and reconciling community whose visible life is a powerful sign of the kingdom that has already begun and will someday arrive in its fullness.
Ronald Sider, Good News and Good Works, 76, quoted by Scot McKnight, A Community Called Atonement, 117.
