THE KINGDOM IN NORTHROP FRYE'S GREAT CODE

In the "kingdom" the eternal and the infinite are not time and space made endless ( they are endless already) but are the now and the here made real, an actual present and an actual presence. Time vanishes in Jesus' "Before Abraham, I am" (John 5:8); space vanishes when we are told, in an aphorism previously referred to, that the kingdom is entos hymon (Luke 17:21), which may mean among you or in you, but in either case means here, not there.
