Understanding the Gospel

The word Gospel is the word that the Bible uses to describe the Good News of the work of Jesus Christ.
At the start of His ministry Jesus proclaimed:
  • “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.” (Mark 1:15)

Later, the Apostle Paul explained that he was,

  • "not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes..." (Romans 1:16)

Thus, this concept of Gospel is important for Christians to understand.

Getting the Gospel Right is the title of a very good book by Rev. R.C. Sproul that was published in 2003.

The same title Getting the Gospel Right is also the title of a summer sermon series that Dr. Derek Thomas recently completed at First Presbyterian Church in Columbia, South Carolina.

Here is the link to all of the church's sermons:

Here are the links to each sermon in the series on understanding the Gospel:

I pray that this sermon series helps you grow in your understanding of the Gospel - the good news about Jesus Christ.
