 The Gospel

The gospel was preached to the OT saints. "But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Isaiah says, "Lord, who has believed our report?" Romans 10:16

"For indeed the gospel was preached to us as well as to them, but the word which they heard did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in those who heard it." Hebrews 4:2

Jesus sent out His 12 disciples to preach the gospel. The gospel the disciple preached did not teach that Jesus would die on the cross for their sins. Do not believe me, search the Scriptures to see if what I write is true.

So what gospel did Jesus preach? How is it different from what many preach today?

In Christ
Jeff

 Re:

Hi Ron,

There are diverse dispensations in Scripture. The question is: what, who, when, how do these works of God impact the promise of God to man. What does it mean when God says He will be my God, and I will be part of His people.

So you are right, I do not like dispensational theology in general because these questions have not been addressed according to my understanding of Scripture.

In Christ
Jeff

"Repent! For the Kingdom of God is at hand"! The same gospel John the Baptist preceded Him with, and that we still preach today. Mark 1:14

Clutch there is more to it then that. "...Isaiah says, Lord, who has believed our report?" Romans 10:16 Many preached the gospel before John the Baptist.

 Re: The Gospel

First, it is important to understand that the Gospel was preached to Abraham. What we find in the rest of Scripture is the unfolding of the promise to Abraham, which finds its fulfillment in Chirst. And while I am a protestant, I think it is important to realize that the Gospel is far greater than my "personal" salvation, but that is most definitely included. The Gospel is about the reign of God and His Kingdom, which was to extend to all nations. Abraham believed God and it was credited to him as righteousness.

The Gospel, good news, is preeminently about the reign of God and the Gospel in the N.T. is that Jesus Christ is Lord and that he reigns. "Paul, a slave of Christ Jesus, called as an apostle, set apart for the GOSPEL of God, which he promised beforehand through His prophets in the Holy Scriptures concerning His Son, who was born a descendent of David, accoring to the flesh, and was declared the Son of God, through the Spirit, with power, by his resurrection of the dead."

Paul tells the Corinthians that what he passed on to them was of first importance, which included Christ dying according to the Scriptures, so we can reject any notion that this wasn't the plan of God from the beginning.

So, the good news that Jesus preached was His coming reign, and we still preach that today.

Jesus preached the same good news that we preach and that is that today is the day of God's favor.
The account of the rich young ruler is a perfect example and is found in three of the four gospels. Jesus called the rich man to put his faith and trust in Him instead of his riches. This has always been the thrust of the good news; put your trust in God and do the appropriate acts of one who trusts God.

"Follow Jesus" - that is the gospel, don't walk away sad like the rich young ruler.

In Christ,

Ron
