“I think our best hope lies in what Jesus calls in this passage ‘the great reversal’. This phrase fits about as well as anything for a key aspect of the Kingdom of God, the idea that the last will be first and the first will be last. This is a nightmare for tyrants, and even folks who enjoy prestige and wealth in the status quo. It may be the last thing that they want. But for lovers of justice, for people who truly seek equity and harmony – liberty and justice for all, if you will – this great reversal is a powerful path to God’s kingdom.
