I am surprised that the dictionary and the Wikipedia that people to look as the source of knowledge got it on wrong about this.The definition or the meaning they give to the word 'gospel' is not what is should be.
Well,they wouldn't want to go against the regular meaning since this is what even bible scholars say the gospel is. They told us that the gospel is the proclamation of the redemptive work of Jesus for our salvation.Some will add that is the account of the Matthew,Mark,Luke and John that makes up the gospel.
But do you know that this is not true?
In the books of Mark they refer to one of the gospel. In Mark 1 vs 14-15.Here Jesus came to Galilee and started preaching and His message was that the people the time is fulfilled for the kingdom of God is at hand.He then admonish them to repent and believe the gospel.
It is clear that Jesus was the first to preach the gospel.That means it was something Jesus knew and understood.It was not something that was to be understood later in the future.Jesus knew the message was for the people of His time and for many that would hear or read about it.The gospel is not what we would be reading our meaning to or giving a private interpretation. Jesus already gave the meaning when He preached.
What is the gospel?
I know this might make you catch a cold and may not want to believe. But this is the bible.Except the Jesus never said so then can I be found to be heretic.Jesus in the first statement,talked about the time being now and fulfilled.
Why was the time now fulfilled? It is because the Jesus was referring to His conquest over stand during the temptation of His 40 days and nights.Before then, Satan had the government of the world in his power.But when Christ overcame him during the temptations,the government of the world changed hands to Christ as planned.
Jesus then boldly has the authority to preach of the gospel which in the Greek means good news. The good news is that the kingdom is near because the real King of the kingdom of God has taken over. And for the people to partake in the kingdom of GOD,they need to repent.Turn from following Satan's way and then choosing to submit to the government of God. This is the true gospel.
He fulfilled prophecy that had long be said by Isaiah 61 vs 1.
