The Kingdom/Reign of God

Young's Literal Translation sometimes translates the "kingdom" of God as the reign of God.

For example, where the KJV says:

ACTS 1:3
3 ...speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God:

YLT has it:

...and speaking the things concerning the reign of God.

The kingdom of God evokes images of God's visible location - but the reign of God extends to include the manner of God's dealings with mankind in both eternity and time.

The Old Testament gave prophecies concerning the Kingdom of God - the New Testament reveals the manner of its fulfilment, through Jesus Christ.
