What Is The Gospel?
When something good happens, we talk about it. We get the word out. We declare and announce and report it. The ancient word for reporting good news is gospel. “The gospel” is the good news of Jesus Christ. He established God’s kingdom. He restored God’s people. He showed the way. He died as a sacrifice for our sins. He rose again to defeat death. He brings new life to imperfect, broken, normal people. Here is the gospel in one sentence: Through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus, God has made the good life of His kingdom available to sinners like you and me.
Why Study The Gospel This Way?
To understand The Gospel, we’ve got to look at what Jesus did during his time on earth: his teachings, miracles, healings, arguments, and of course how he died and rose again. This is where the Gospels come in: the story of Jesus told by Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Each of these God-inspired biographies tells the true story of Jesus from a unique perspective, and by studying them together in chronological order we’ll witness the story of Jesus as the events actually unfolded. This study will provide what we always need most: a clear vision of Jesus.
