grilling Jesus

Today’s (Oct. 23) a.m. Bible study (Luke 17:20-37) pondered the “grilling” * of Jesus about when and where the Kingdom of God will come.  The Pharisees want visible signs.  Jesus gives a confusing answer.  Could it be confusing because the questions of when and where are asked in material terms and Jesus answers the when and where in spiritual terms?  Is Jesus saying we will “see” the kingdom of God (among or within us) when “seeing” our mortal helplessness to sin as the where for God’s grace?   Can you ponder your when and where other than in material terms?
