What is the Gospel?

 

 

God came to earth in human form

Jesus Christ, God in the flesh, was born into this world. He came to save us from our sins and death. 

John 1:14 

Jesus died on the cross for our sins

Sin brought death into the world. The only just punishment for our sins is death, but God loved the world so much that he sent Jesus to die for our sins. Jesus was without sin, he was the only one whose death could pay for all of the sins in the world.  

 Mark 15:21-32 & Colossians 2:13-15

Jesus was buried

After his death on the cross, Jesus was buried in a tomb. His body was guarded by Roman guards and a large boulder covering the entrance of the tomb. 

 Luke 23:50-56

Jesus rose from the dead and ascended into heaven

On the third day, Jesus rose from the dead. His body had not decayed and he walked out of his tomb. He then appeared to his disciples and hundreds of people in the area. Then Jesus ascended into heaven to sit at the right hand of God the father. 

 John 20:1-10 & Acts 1:6-11

Jesus will return!

He is patiently waiting in heaven for sinners to turn to him. Jesus will return to earth one day and take all of his followers with him to heaven. All who choose to follow Jesus and obey the Gospel will join him in heaven. 

 Matthew 24:42-44
