Luke 17:20-21 The Passion Translation (TPT)

God’s Kingdom Realm within You

20 Jesus was once asked by the Jewish religious leaders, “When will God’s kingdom realm come?”[a]

Jesus responded, “God’s kingdom realm does not come simply by obeying principles[b] or by waiting for signs. 21 The kingdom is not discovered in one place or another, for God’s kingdom realm is already expanding within some of you.”[c]


  1. Luke 17:20 Or “When will God’s kingdom be established?”
  2. Luke 17:20 Implied in the Aramaic text where it states, “observances” (of the law). The same word is found in Gal. 4:10 referring to “observances” of keeping the law.
  3. Luke 17:21 Translated from the Aramaic text. The implication is that God’s kingdom realm is a person, Jesus Christ. The reality of God’s kingdom appears when Jesus lives within us by faith.
