The Gospel - Scot McKnight

Scot McKnight has written an interesting book about the content of the gospel called the King Jesus gospel. This is an important book. He makes the excellent point that the normal gospel of personal salvation is to narrow.

I think that my gospel is even broader than Scot’s. Here is my definition of the gospel.

The gospel is the good news that Jesus totally and fully dealt with sin and defeated evil when he died on the cross. He was raised from the dead and ascended into the spiritual realms where he was crowned as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. He released the Holy Spirit to work in the world and clean up the dreadful mess caused by sin and evil.
