Title: ONLY ONE GOSPEL ?
Post by: doug on July 11, 2020, 05:50:18 pm
Holding to the notion that only one gospel was preached throughout scripture has implications.

Matthew 28:16 Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them.

 28:17 And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted.

 28:18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.

 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

 28:20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

 If, as some say, there is only one gospel preached by Jesus, the twelve, and Paul, then not only the gospel taught the disciples is to be believed, but we have to observe, and do, all Jesus commanded them according to Matthew 28:20.

 Jesus taught them the gospel of the kingdom (Matthew 4:23), saying in Mark 1:14-15 the time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. That time was the promised kingdom on earth, in which, Christ and the remnant of Israel would reign on earth. Since this gospel was taught by Christ, and we are commanded to teach all he taught, we would have to likewise, wrongly preach this gospel.

 The fact that Christ commanded all to observe all things would not allow one to say, we rightly divide scripture, and certain teachings were only to be fulfilled by those disciples, and therefore do not apply to us. It is either we correctly rightly divide scripture, or we obey all of it.

 It would be correct to rightly divide, as Christ, in verse 16, was only commanding the eleven disciples.

like every Gospel the Gospel of the Kingdom only lasted from the beginning of John the Baptist until the death of Jesus...The the Gospel of Jesus Christ began..It will end in the Rapture of the True Believers in the Church (His body, His bride to be), both Jew and Gentile alike. After this, the "Everlasting Gospel" will take its place for over 1000 years. After that there is no mention of any gospels.
