But what next then he/they take over the world OR all the people in the world miraculously become christians I don't get it?

As a scientist you probably like to take things literally, but you are right about this being figurative.

As far as the second bit is concerned, I think if you take Revís interpretation of the kingdom of God (good), and imagine that that was the sort of thing that they were asked to spread, you will be close to the truth. The trouble is that later generations seem to have interpreted this as meaning that they should impose their beliefs on others, and bash those who didnít conform.
There never was nothing.
