Ken Schenck writes about “the gospel” and the meaning of evangelism. Here’s his summation of the gospel:
The gospel is the good news that 1) our God reigns (Gospels) and that 2) Jesus is king (Paul), 3) along with all the good stuff that entails (Acts). It’s not about how to get saved and, although our salvation is part of the good news, it is a minor part. It is more an implication of the gospel than the focus of the gospel.
