What important messages are found in the gospel?

The gospel tells that God sent His one and only Son, Jesus Christ, into the world. Jesus was God Himself, but He was a “son?in the sense God became flesh. “Son of Man?emphasizes Jesus?humanity. Yet, Jesus was the Savior of His people. Jesus?salvation succeeds in five ways as a source of our salvation. The following has been done for us, and this is at the heart of Jesus?gospel:
  1. Christ was born for us. “For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord"(Lk 2:11).
  2. Christ died for us. “Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures"(1 Cor 15:3; Rom 5:8).
  3. Christ resurrected for us. He was “was raised because of our justification"(Rom 4:25).
  4. Christ ascended into heaven for us. “I go to prepare a place for you" (Jn 14:2?).
  5. Christ will come again for us. He will “appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation" (Heb 9:28). These five points are basic Christian beliefs and are guiding principles out of which come all the derivatives of the gospel. However, don’t confuse this with a belief that these are the only things we need to know for salvation. The Bible is a big book with lots of things to learn about salvation.
