Mungu Baba juu ya kiti cha enzi[1], Westphalia, Ujerumani, mwisho wa karne ya 15.
Yesu akimpa Mtume Petro funguo za ufalme wa mbinguni (Math 16:18),[2] kadiri walivyochorwa na Pietro Perugino, 1492.
Malaika akipuliza tarumbeta ya mwisho kwa ajili ya hukumu kadiri ya 1Kor 15:52, Langenzenn, Ujerumani, karne ya 19.

Ufalme wa Mungu (au Ufalme wa mbinguni unavyoitwa hasa katika Injili ya Mathayo) ni mojawapo kati ya mada kuu za ujumbe wa Yesu Kristo katika Injili .[3]Neno "ufalme" (kwa Kigiriki βασιλεία, Basileia) linapatikana mara 162 katika Agano Jipya, kawaida kwa maana ya Basileia tou Theou (βασιλεία τοῦ θεοῦ), Ufalme wa Mungu, au Basileia tōn Ouranōn, (Βασιλεία τῶν Ουρανῶν), Ufalme wa Mbinguni.[4][5]

Hata katika hilo Agano Jipya limeendeleza Agano la Kale, ambapo Mungu anatangazwa kuwa mfalme wa ulimwengu[6][7][8] akiwa na mwakilishi, Daudi na watawala wa ukoo wake, kwa namna ya pekee Masiya, Mwana wa Daudi aliyetarajiwa.

Biblia inatangazwa kwamba hatimaye Mungu atawahukumu watu wote kadiri walivyokubali au kukataa mamlaka yake[9]. Juu ya msingi wa madondoo mbalimbali wa Agano Jipya, Kanuni ya Imani ya Nisea-Konstantinopoli inathibitisha kwamba hukumu hiyo itafanywa kwa njia ya Yesu. Pia kwa sababu hiyo mwenyewe alipenda kujiita "Mwana wa Mtu" kadiri ya njozi ya Danieli.

Madhehebu ya Ukristo leo yanatofautiana sana katika kuelewa na kueleza mada hiyo.
