What Gospel Did Jesus & the Apostles Teach?

by Wes Bridel on February 18, 2010

Scripture is very clear about what the nature of the good news is.  We can look at the words of Christ or the early Apostles to see this.  Even John the Baptist, who did not inherit, nor understand the kingdom, preached of its arrival through Jesus.  However, because we’ve heard the wrong thing so often, [...]

What is the gospel (good news)?  We stated last week that what we normally hear presented as the gospel is but a shell of the good news Christ and the apostles taught.  We have an event scheduled tonight to deliver and discuss the pure, unfiltered gospel as taught by Christ which you can sign up [...]

You’re familiar with typical representation of the Gospel:

Man, through Adam, sinned and thus was separated from God.  Jesus then was sent to the world to live a life absent of sin and thus redeem mankind from eternal damnation by offering Himself as the needed sacrifice.  Thus for all those who accept Him, a wonderful, eternal [...]

The message that Jesus preached and lived has been badly distorted by the Church over the centuries.  His life, death, and new life introduced the Kingdom of God and this was the good news that He preached.  You would be hard pressed to find Jesus preaching a message of Salvation in the scriptures because this [...]

in Calling

Jesus’ purpose in sending out the disciples went beyond the preaching of the Gospel of the Kingdom.  Rather, He wanted them to experience the power of the Holy Spirit themselves, and thus be strengthened in their faith to continue learning and growing as disciples of the Kingdom.  Today many people confuse this purpose of the [...]

Peace that goes beyond understanding (Mt 10:11-13)

by Wes Bridel on March 16, 2009

“And whatever city or village you enter, inquire who is worthy in it, and stay at his house until you leave that city.  12As you enter the house, give it your greeting.  13If the house is worthy, give it your blessing of peace. But if it is not worthy, take back your blessing of peace.” [...]
