What is the Kingdom of God?
It seems to me that Jesus was definetly trying to say that the kingdom of heaven wasnt a physical place. The kingdom of Heaven is within all of us who keep his word and do his will.

The Kingdom of God
The Kingdom of God, is something that is in your heart. But is it the church or is it a vague metaphor without substance? The Kingdom of God can be compared to a human kingdom. A human kingdom has a king, subjects, territory, laws and a government to administer those laws. The Kingdom of God has the same components. Currently, the Kingdom of God is not on this Earth. Satan rules this world and until Christ returns and replaces him, the Kingdom of God is not yet here. When Christ returns and reigns on Earth, the Kingdom of God will be on the Earth. Christ said his kingdom was not of this world.

Until it is on this Earth, Christians pray: Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in Earth, as it is in heaven. John 3:3 said , Verily, verily, I say unto thee, except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. So that let us know tht we have got to except Jesus as I personal Lord and Savior.

What did Pilate perceive about Jesus that made him so reluctant to have Jesus executed?
Jesus had done nothing that violated Roman law, so Pilate was not justified in putting him to death.

What did Pilate perceive about Jesus that made him so reluctant to have Jesus executed?
Prophesy had to be fulfilled, so it doesn`t really matter what, if anything, Pilate perceived. However, perhaps Pilate wanted not to be held responsible should Jesus` words be true. Maybe he didn`t want to run the risk of causing a riot to start among the Jews during the feast of Passover thereby getting in trouble with his superiors in Rome.

The kingdom of god will be when we are with god after judgement day, when this world will end, as described in revelation. Also the kingdom of god i think is also the word of god, the here and now, we can experience the wonder and full beauty of god, s love and kingdom by reading his word, putting our trust in him and living as jesus sets out in the bible, to spread the word of god is to give to others a glimpse of the kingdom of god.

What did Pilate perceive about Jesus that made him so reluctant to have Jesus executed?
One doubt regards the fact that they are accusing him so he is not doing anything agaisnt the Roman rule. They should condemn him to death. But their law does not allow the death penalty so they ask the Roman Government to do that. They consign him to them. Pilate recognises that he is talking about a different kingdom and that hsi rule over the Jews is of a spiritual nature. So they don`t recognise him and find that he is breaking the law but he`s doing nothing against the Roman goverrment. Also he speaks very boldly serenely and confidently to Pilate about the Kingdom and he listens openly to him.Therefore the Jews said to him, It is not lawful for us to put anyone to death, that the word of Jesus might be fulfilled, which he spoke, signifying by what kind of death he should die. this words puzzle me. They want him to be condemned so that the prophecy is fullfilled and yet they are not allowed to kill him. He knew he had to die on the cross so this means that he knwe that the Romans had to kill him, that was a Roman way of killing the accused. So seems that if the Romans accept obey the Jews they accept the prophecy and so the word of God. Pilate could have carried on refusing. So he accepts the Word of God and as a public authority also the Romans potentially?

Jesus Before Pilate

They led Jesus therefore from Caiaphas into the Praetorium. It was early, and they themselves didn't enter into the Praetorium, that they might not be defiled, but might eat the Passover. Pilate therefore went out to them, and said, "What accusation do you bring against this man?"
They answered him, "If this man weren't an evildoer, we wouldn't have delivered him up to you."
Pilate therefore said to them, "Take him yourselves, and judge him according to your law."
Therefore the Jews said to him, "It is not lawful for us to put anyone to death," that the word of Jesus might be fulfilled, which he spoke, signifying by what kind of death he should die.
Pilate therefore entered again into the Praetorium, called Jesus, and said to him, "Are you the King of the Jews?"
Jesus answered him, "Do you say this by yourself, or did others tell you about me?"
Pilate answered, "I'm not a Jew, am I? Your own nation and the chief priests delivered you to me. What have you done?"
Jesus answered, "My Kingdom is not of this world. If my Kingdom were of this world, then my servants would fight, that I wouldn't be delivered to the Jews. But now my Kingdom is not from here."
Pilate therefore said to him, "Are you a king then?"
Jesus answered, "You say that I am a king. For this reason I have been born, and for this reason I have come into the world, that I should testify to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth listens to my voice."
Pilate said to him, "What is truth?"
When he had said this, he went out again to the Jews, and said to them, "I find no basis for a charge against him. But you have a custom, that I should release someone to you at the Passover. Therefore do you want me to release to you the King of the Jews?"
Then they all shouted again, saying, "Not this man, but Barabbas!" Now Barabbas was a robber.
