Matthew uses the expression “Kingdom Of Heaven” 32 times.
1. Denotative Difference
2. Connotative Difference
3. Metonymic Difference
Metonymy (noun)- : a figure of speech consisting of the use of the name of one thing for that of another of which it is an attribute or with which it is associated (such as "crown" in "lands belonging to the crown")
Matthew is being intentional by clearly demarcating the difference between the Kingdom of Heaven vs. Kingdoms of earth.
Our citizenship is in the Kingdom of Heaven, not the Kingdoms of the Earth.
Kingdom Of Earth Temptation:
“God doesn’t care about your needs—so you’d better take matters into your own hands!”
Kingdom Of Earth Temptation:
“You can misuse God’s promises to get what you want.”
Kingdom Of Earth Temptation:
“You can achieve God’s “what” while ignoring God’s “how”.
Because the real battle was with Satan (1 Jn. 3:8), it was fitting for Jesus to start by facing him. Because Jesus is the second Adam (Rom. 5:19), it was necessary for him to choose obedience to God over rebellion suggested by Satan. Because Jesus was the new Moses leading a greater Exodus, it was necessary for him to be tested in the wilderness for 40 days.
