but He said to them, "I must preach the kingdom of God to the other cities also, because for this purpose I have been sent."
This is exactly what Jesus did. He went about all the cities and villages in Israel preaching the gospel of the Kingdom of God. (Matthew 9:35) Jesus instructed His disciples to preach the Kingdom of God. (Luke 9:2) Apostle Paul also preached the Kingdom of God. (Acts 19:8)
In the Bible, the Kingdom of God is also referred to as the Kingdom of Heaven and the Kingdom of Christ. Hundreds of scriptures refer to the Kingdom of God, and it is the core message of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Yet, amazingly very few Christians fully understand the gospel of the Kingdom of God, which Jesus, His disciples and the apostles, preached.
The word gospel means 'good news'. Jesus Christ came to preach the good news of the coming Kingdom of God, and how we may enter into it.
