It’s a good question for all of us who read the gospels and try to apprehend what he is about. Even more so, it is a good question for anyone who dares to emulate Yeshua in the way of a disciple (I don’t mean emulating him in terms of your identity or specific mission).
The kingdom is a mystery (musterion) and has secrets for the inner circle of Yeshua’s disciples. Did they get it? Do we?
Over the whole meditation on Yeshua’s methods and ways, I place this quotation by George MacDonald, “Love has ever in view the absolute loveliness of that which it beholds.” That is a good way to understand Yeshua, love in action.
