The Gospel

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, my family and those whom God loves:

Perhaps one of the most important words Christians need to be clear about is the the word “Gospel.”

What is the “Gospel?”

This English word translates the Greek New Testament word εὐαγγέλιον (euangélion, “evangel” or “good news”). Although we can generally refer to the entire Bible as Gospel or call Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, “the Gospels,” within the context of the New Testament, the word “Gospel” specifically refers to the good news message of God in Christ.
