1 Corinthians 15
1 Moreover, brethren, I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received and in which you stand,
2 by which also you are saved, if you hold fast that word which I preached to you—unless you believed in vain.
3 For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures,
4 and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures,
5 and that He was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve.
6 After that He was seen by over five hundred brethren at once, of whom the greater part remain to the present, but some have fallen asleep.
16I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile. 17For in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed, a righteousness that is by faith from first to last,[a] just as it is written: "The righteous will live by faith."[b]
I was going to quote that verse, so now I will have to quote another
The word is near you, it is in your mouth and in your heart, that is the word of faith we are proclaiming. That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord" and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. Rom10:8&9
Going by Isaiah 61, the "Gospel" that Jesus preached contained quite a bit:
Isa 61:1 The Spirit of the Lord Jehovah is on Me; because Jehovah has anointed Me to preach the Gospel to the poor;
1.He has sent Me to bind up the broken-hearted, 2. to proclaim liberty to the captives, 3.and the opening of the prison to those who are bound; Isa 61:2
4. to preach the acceptable year of Jehovah and 5.the day of vengeance of our God; 6.to comfort all who mourn;
The Good News is that we are no longer separated from God by sin, but are now through Jesus Christ reconciled unto Him for all eternity, with nothing standing between us and Him. All sins and all lies have been removed in Jesus Christ, and now we are risen to new life to God in Him.
The Gospel is believing that Jesus is the Saviour of the world,that He died for our sins,and God raised Him from the dead,and all those who believe in faith will be raised to be with Him.
But you must believe that Jesus is God manifest in the flesh and not only a good man.
Jesus explained to the Jews that if they did not believe that He is God manifest in the flesh they would die in their sins.
Then you repent of all your sins,and turn away from all sins,and be baptized,and if this is done correctly you will receive the Holy Spirit to help you in your walk with God.
Some people do not what repenting of their sins means,and go back to their lifestyle,thinking they were saved.
The good news is that God's great plan of redemption has been fulfilled in Christ.
Consider the promise made to Abraham.
Genesis 12: 3 I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you."
Genesis 22: 18 and through your offspring all nations on earth will be blessed, because you have obeyed me."
God told Abraham that his seed would bless all nations. What was Abraham's seed that God was referring to?
Galatians 3: 16 The promises were spoken to Abraham and to his seed. The Scripture does not say "and to seeds," meaning many people, but "and to your seed," meaning one person, who is Christ.
Christ is the seed. But what is the blessing?
Galatians 3: 8 The Scripture foresaw that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, and announced the gospel in advance to Abraham: "All nations will be blessed through you."
Luke 24: 44 He said to them, "This is what I told you while I was still with you: Everything must be fulfilled that is written about me in the Law of Moses, the Prophets and the Psalms."45 Then he opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures. 46 He told them, "This is what is written: The Christ will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day,47 and repentance and forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
The blessing is that all people, of all races and nationalities, will receive forgiveness of sins and be redeemed by faith in Christ Jesus. And this, because of God's graciousness and love for us.
Luke 2: 10And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. 11For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
21And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. Quest
The Gospel it the 'things concerning christ and the coming kingdom' which contain many things, in particular that salvation is through faith and that works of law are a curse, and the kingdom of god is on earth, the promises to the fathers to be fullfilled are a big part of the gospel as well. As well as to know the nature of christ the son of god.
acts 8:12 But when they believed Philip preaching the good news(gospel) about the kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ, they were being baptized, men and women alike.
Acts 1:3 To these He also presented Himself alive after His suffering, by many convincing proofs, appearing to them over a period of forty days and speaking of the things concerning the kingdom of God.
Wow.. I can't believe how many posts are on here that say the good news is just that Jesus saves.
The Gospel is:
1. The Death
2. The Burial
3. The Resurrection
How we apply all three?:
1. The Death - Repentance, dying to our sinful nature and ourselves
2. The Burial - Full immersion baptism in Jesus name to be covered by the blood
3. The Resurrection - Receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost with evidence of speaking in tongues
1Co 15:1 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;
1Co 15:2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
1Co 15:3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
1Co 15:4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
