The Gospel and The Bible

“Things of the Kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ” - Acts 8:5,12,14,25

The message Jesus Christ proclaimed was “the gospel of the Kingdom of God” Matthew 4:23; Luke 8:1

The gospel was preached generations BEFORE Christ’s birth - Galatians 3:8; Hebrews 4:2

The gospel concerns the Hope of Israel - Acts 26:6-7; 28:20

“The gospel” means the Good News


(Romans 1:15-17; 1 Corinthians 15:1-2; 2 Timothy 1:8-10)
