Knowing About The Gospel

Knowing About The Gospel

It is good you know about the gospel message, the gospel is the goodnews about the birth, work, death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

At Birth

The Bible says by the mouth of Luke 2: 10
"And the Angel said unto them, fear not, For behold I bring you good tidings of great joy which shall be to all people.

For unto you is born this day in the City of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord".

The birth of Jesus Christ into the world is a good news because by Him the world shall be saved from sin; sickness and condemnation unto Hell.

The Works

The account of his work on Earth, his healings, teachings, signs and wonders; then his death and burial and resurrection are all reported by the 4 gospel writers - Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.
Matthew reported in chapter 9: 35.

"And Jesus went about all cities and villages teaching in their Synagogues and preaching the gospel of the Kingdom and healing every sickness and every disease among the people"

The Cross

The good news about Jesus is centred on the cross of his death. This is where the sin exchange took place.

John reports,

"Behold the Lamb of God which taketh away the sin of the world" John 1: 29.
You need faith to understand this. God took his righteousness and placed it upon us. (2 Cor 5: 21).

His Resurrection

The greatest good news about Jesus comes from his resurrection because by it we are justified or qualified to receive his righteousness. This helps us to be God's own Children (Rom 4: 25).
