What DID Jesus really preach? Does anyone know?

I find it quite interesting that Jesus said in Luke 4:43, "I must preach THE KINGDOM OF GOD to the other cities also, for I was sent for THIS PURPOSE."
Isn't it fascinating that preaching the Kingdom was Jesus' purpose, yet the world is so confused to what that concept really entails? Ask yourselves, why don't we hear preachers and teachers using the words and quotes of Jesus, but instead, change the terminology to say what society has evolved into believing, rather than what Jesus actually said and preached?

I have written a brand new children's book, now on the market, "Maggie Seeks the Kingdom of God" that attempts to unveil this simple Gospel that Jesus himself preached -- (Matt. 9:35) -- check it out....you might just find the pieces of the puzzle that you are searching for.
Seek first the Kingdom of God.

I wondered about that too. Why Preachers and Christians don't want to talk about Jesus' central message-Kingdom of God?
Looks like preachers intentionally steer his listeners away from Jesus' central message therefore Christens are not aware of this is the central message of Jesus.

I am reading the most interesting book right now. "Surprised by Hope" by N.T. Wright. I'm only on page 54 right now, so I'm not exactly sure where he's going, but I can't put it down. Have you heard of it?
I've also found a website that has some interesting audio and video of debates called www.christianmonotheism.com. I hope I spelled that right!
Good stuff! And I think Christians everywhere should be called to question everything and continually keep studying, learning, and examining, because truth is important!

Don't look for it here...and there. The kingdom of God is within you. Luke 17.

Jesus preached that God is real and has His own abode (spiritual abode).... That man is made in His image (ie Gods form is like ours)... And the process to attain God is by glorifying and singing the name of God. Coincidentally this is EXACTLY the same as the Indian Vedic scriptures profess .. including the Bhagavad Gita (The instructional song of God) and the Srimad Bhagavatam (The auspicious stories about God and His associates)

"Process to attain God?" not sure what you mean by that? Would you like to explain further?

Do you not believe that the Kingdom of God or Kingdom of Heaven (same thing) is not a physical coming reign and rule of Christ on the earth in 'the age to come?'

Why do you think preachers "intentionally steer" their listeners away from the Gospel of the Kingdom message?

I think preachers who steer listeners away from Jesus' literal "Gospel" message do so because they do not know how to relate it to the lives of ordinary laypeople who unlike the inner circle of Jesus' disciples, have not given away all worldly goods to the poor and taken up their cross to follow a Gospel teaching intensively. In this they are like the young man who "went away sorrowing, for he had much goods," after having first failed to heed the Master's initial answer to his question about attaining "eternal life," namely "that do (keep the Commandments) and thou shalt live," instead inquiring further, "...What lack I yet?" Jesus told him "If you would be perfect..." but those preachers know their listeners are not ready for a more intensive teaching, and do not know the art of making the connection between their lives and the original Gospel message. It must be admitted that this is not easy. Angela Hays Moore's children's book (Maggie seeks the Kingdom of God) may well be worth a look. I am surprised that more readers do not approve of her posts.

jpl: Thanks for the cite reference, aave. I've been interested in the missing parts of the holy books from a historical view for some time. The cite is invaluable.

jpl: Other examples exist about "Messiahs" (teachers) who predate Jesus. They can be found not only in the Vedas, but also in Egypt. The Messiahs, of which there were several, all had 12 followers, were worn in a barn or manger, had three wise men come to the birth scene, were crucified, and rose in three days.

Check out the book "Christianity Before Christ" by John G. Jackson. This book will give you several examples of where Christianity got its "Messiah" ideas and gives some other fascinating information about some of the origins of Christianity.
