The mission of the church today is to proclaim the Kingdom of God and the extension of God's rule to the entire world. In order to better understand the task of the Church the author attempted in this thesis to make a historical investigation, and sketch the growth of the concept of the Kingdom of God.in the Old Testament. How did the idea of a Kingdom of God originate in the Old Testament? What did the common people believe about the Kingdom of God? In what manner did the concept of the Kingdom change during the ages? What was the relationship of the Messiah and the earthly king to the concept of the Kingdom of God? These are some of the questions that are discussed in this thesis.
