The Gospel;

1 Corinthians 15:1-6 (KJV) Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how 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: And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep.

This is the foundation of all that the Gospel is of which most is in Ephesians 1 & 2.

In Christ: Phillip

Good to see such good contributions with many scripture references. It is important that we know the "summary" or the "foundation " of what the Gospel is.
But in James 2 we read, v17: So too, faith by itself, if it is not complemented by action, is dead. 18But someone will say, “You have faith and I have deeds.” Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by my deeds.

To give you an example: once I was talking to a Jehova Witness about Jesus. He told me: "oh, I believe in Jesus and I know John 3:16..." I asked him why he is still handing out the watchtower and not Gospel tracts. I think you get the point.

But with many preachers today it is not be so obvious. They might preach about Jesus and the Gospel but it is not the center of their message.
David Wilkerson has a lot to say about that, I will put another one of his messages up in another thread shortly.

Re: Philip,

“The Gospel;”
Then you gave this Scripture,...

“1Corinthians 15:1-6 (KJV) “

(Can be read above)
I do not quite understand what you are trying to say.
Could you please elaborate farther ?

Also you said:,
“this is the foundation of all that the Gospel is of which most is in Ephesians 1 & 2....”
Please explain

Because I am seeing all that Paul taught/ preached, the gospel.
The *gospel of the *kingdom,... things pertaining to ,.. and concerning *the kingdom, and about Jesus.... Who is inseparable from *the kingdom of God,... *For to this end was He born, be king” ,.. King of *the kingdom of God (can be found in John)

In Jesus’gospel, He taught / preached *the gospel of the kingdom,... in it He taught about Himself,.. what He would have to do for us, (His precious Blood) and what He would have to send back for us (His Spirit) ,... this Godly / heavenly kingdom.
So He has made *a Way for us.
He is a God of order, He says, ( in this order) *I Am The Way, *The Truth, and *The Life.
So if we are to have *His Life, ...we must go first in*His Way, which is through *His Truth, If we are to have *His Life.
.....then Life more abundantly.
Haven’t we been called into a Kingdom ?
By *faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went.

9 By *faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise:

10 For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose *builder and *maker ***is God.”
* Builder .... *Maker , IS **God ?
...the invisable God ?,..... The Word, that IS Spirit ? ,... He who speaketh through The Spirit of God, ....led by His Spirit,,... through Jesus ?
*YES !
If we must *work while it is *day,...(while we can *see),.... then we must *walk,.. ..if we must *walk, then we must be on a *path.,....narrow Way.
