The Gospel is the Good News that Jesus came, lived, suffered, died, and was raised from the dead, in the place of sinners, so that sinners could be reconciled to God.
Perhaps you’ve done enough exploring to understand what that statement means, but maybe you haven’t. Maybe that “simple” statement comes with many questions; Questions like “Who is Jesus?” “Who is God?” “Who are sinners?” “Why do they need to be reconciled to God?” Below is a more detailed definition of The Gospel.
There is such a thing as truth and God, the creator and sustainer of all things, is its author. His greatest truth is the gospel (“good news”) of Jesus Christ. This gospel is an ageless anchor for hope that is always good and true behind everything else that is false and hurtful. It is the good news of what God has done for his people through the life, death, resurrection, and ascension of his only son, Jesus Christ. In the gospel alone is found the elusive peace and happiness we all hunger for.
