이렇듯다양한해석들앞에서본 소고는하나님나라의실재를신학적 으로반성해보고자한다. 이를위해먼저예수의하나님나라이해를살펴 본 후 이러한과정을통해해명된하나님나라의실재를교회와의관계속 에서조명해볼 것이다. 본소고가이 나라를교회와연관시키는것은임의 적이아니다. 오히려필연적이다. 왜냐하면성서가말하는하나님나라는 하나님의백성을불러모을뿐 아니라이 백성을통해당신의빛을세상에 비추는방식으로실존하기때문이다. 본소고는이러한과정을통해결국 이 나라가하나님의신비에속하기에거듭나지않으면볼 수도들어갈수 도 없는신비지만, 성도의교제(Sanctorum Communio)로서의교회를통해 드러나고또한드러나야만하는실재임을제시할것이다.


In this paper, I have attempted to analyze the biblical witness, especially the parables of the kingdom of God in order to make an approach to the reality of the kingdom of God. The result is as follows. First,the kingdom of God is not different from God who reveals himself as Person and Mystery. The kingdom of God is God himself. God and the kingdom of God are to distinguish only in the fact that the concept of God emphasizes the personal aspect of divine reality, whereas the concept of the kingdom of God brings the mysterious dimension of the personal God into focus.Second, the kingdom of God is not separated from the person and the work of Jesus. Whatever the manifestations of the kingdom of God in history may be, Christianity claims to be based on its centural manifestation in Jesus Christus. Furthermore we can say that Jesus is the visible kingdom of God on the earth.?Therefore the kingdom of God can be defined as the healing power that renews the human reality.?Third, the kingdom of God is the eschatological reality that has not come yet. Therefore the christian faith confronts the tension between the present experience of Spiritual Presence and the delayed end of the world. This problem leads us to the ecclesiology because the kingdom of God in the biblical sense reveals his own reality only through the people of God, i.e., the church. According to the biblical tradition, the churches are the representatives of the kingdom of God. Only when we indicate the light of the kingdom of God in the church, we could endure and solve the problem of discontinuity of the kingdom of God. So I have tried to approach to the essential qualities of the church, and come to argue two issues. First, the church must be distinguished from the worldly reality. The holy church means to be the church, which must not be separated but distinguished from the world. The struggle against profanization is the first step toward the true church. Second, the church must concentrate on the spiritual Power and Presence that leads the believers to the Sanctorum Communio. I finally suggested that the church might be the witness to the kingdom of God, in sofar as the Sanctorum Commnio could reveal himself as the hidden body of Christ.
