The Bible is full of references to life in a city. Over the centuries people generally have sought the support and comfort of living together in a community of some kind. Whether they maintained a farm, or a large household, people of all ages, and economic status lived and worked in concert and towards some greater good. Clearly, the City of God—the New Jerusalem, will have a very different structure and importance than the cities that we’ve seen, read about and experienced. Together we will consider the scriptural basis of the importance of the city structure, and the role it will play in God’s Kingdom.
