What is the Gospel?

 

If you ask many people, they might each give you a different answer to this question. Did you know that the Bible tells us the answer?

1 Corinthians 15:1-4 Moreover, brethren, I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received and in which you stand, by which also you are saved, if you hold fast that word which I preached to you--unless you believed in vain. For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures,

Notice what Paul the Apostle said in this passage: "I declare to you the gospel". Then He says what that was: "I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures"

Do you see the answer to our question? The Gospel is the death, burial and resurrection according to Scriptures of Jesus Christ.

 

 

His death (His blood) is the manner in which we can have our sins forgiven.

Ephesians 1:7 In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace

His resurrection is the assurance that we have that death will not be our end, but a beginning

1 Corinthians 15:20-23 But now Christ is risen from the dead, and has become the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep. For since by man came death, by Man also came resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive. But each one in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, afterward those who are Christís at His coming.

With the Gospel, Jesus accomplishes two things:

2 Timothy 1:10 but has now been revealed by the appearing of our Savior Jesus Christ, who has abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel,

Here it says that Jesus (1) abolished death and (2) brought us immortality (eternal life). The Bible says that this is the Good News that comes through Jesus Christ. Now your question ought to be: what must I do to be saved?
