What is the Gospel?


By Martin Cicero My church family and I have been talking about things these last few weeks that lead up to a very important question, “What is the gospel?” Before I answer that, we need to understand that many people answer the question with much excess baggage. In Section 3 of Steps to Sharing Your Faith, we read, Sometimes a theme in the Scriptures so captivates us that we are tempted to make it part of the essential message.

Many times during Jesus’ ministry here on earth, He asked the question, “What do you think?” Seven times in the gospels Jesus asked or is asked the question, “What do you think?” Do you just accept what you hear and read, or do you take time to think about it? Do you look to see if there is an alternate view? How [...]
