Top 10 Words from the Bible
#10: Kingdom Come
It's odd that kingdom come is often associated (sometimes humorously) with violent death.
For instance, as one blogger reported, "Turns out that in foiling a plot by the evil Nazi scientist Baron Zemo, Captain America's teenage sidekick was blown to kingdom come."
But the phrase comes from the Gospel of Matthew, which includes these words in The Lord's Prayer: Thy kingdom come,/Thy will be done ... (Matthew 6:10)
Kingdom come is heaven, or the next world a place, one hopes, of absolute peace.
