      The Gospel tells us who Jesus is; the son of God, the one sent by God, the Messiah anointed by God. His authority and power and teaching came from God. Nearly everything we know about the life and ministry of Jesus comes from the Bible’s four Gospel books Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Mark, presents Jesus as the servant. This book is a plea that God himself, as revealed most clearly and fully in Jesus's death and resurrection, be seen and enjoyed as the final and greatest gift of the gospel. The gospel of Jesus and his many precious blessings are not ultimately what makes the good news good, but means of seeing and savoring the Savior himself.

    Mr. Gilbert’s theology is energetic and insidious. His belief system does not allow him to rely upon the Gospel of John to find the principles of justification salvation. God doesn’t love the world but only those select few who renounce sin in the name of Christ. Faith is /5(). God used it in John Bunyan’s conversion. The English poet, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, said that Romans is “the profoundest piece of writing in existence” (these examples from Martyn Lloyd-Jones, Romans: The Gospel of God [Zondervan], pp. ). So God has greatly used the Book of Romans at some key moments in church history.

This book is a plea that God himself, as revealed most clearly and fully in Jesus’s death and resurrection, be seen and enjoyed as the final and greatest gift of the gospel.

The gospel of Jesus and his many precious blessings are not ultimately what makes the good news good, but means of seeing and savoring the Savior himself/5(71).

Challenging study. You also need the book by John Piper, God is the Gospel, in order to get optimum benefit. Great service and product.

This book was missing the DVE that was to accompany it. I am very disturbed with the sender's matter of sending 1/2 of the product. I will not provide their name to any associates/5(5).

The thesis of God is the Gospel is that our apprehension of and delight in the glory of God is what makes the good news good. “[The] highest, best, final, decisive good of the gospel, without which no other gifts would be good, is the glory of God in.

He writes this in the introduction: "When I say that God is the Gospel I mean that the highest, best, final, decisive good of the gospel, without which no other gifts would be good, is the glory of God in the face of Christ revealed for our everlasting enjoyment.".

The three parts to this, he says, /5(62). John Piper awakens your group to the highest, best, final, and decisive good of the gospel, without which no other gifts would be good. Some people say forgiveness makes the gospel good news.

Others suggest that being saved from hell or gaining freedom from a guilty conscience makes it good news. But the Bible tells us the gospel is good news not because of its many peripheral blessings, but.

The revelation of this glory, therefore, is rooted in the historical acts of the gospel of Jesus Christ. The light of God’s glory cannot be separated from history. And yet it shines in the hearts of Christians who see the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

However, not everyone can see this glory in the gospel. God is the inheritance of the saints; he is the portion of their souls. God is their wealth and treasure, their food, their life, their dwelling place, their ornament and diadem, and their everlasting honor and glory.

They have none in heaven but God; he is the great good which the redeemed are received to at death. THE ARRIVAL OFGOD’S IMPERIAL AUTHORITY. The gospel not only includes the truth that God is the Creator who is alive today—it also includes the truth that he is the King of the universe who is now, in Jesus Christ, exerting his imperial author- ity in the world for the sake of his Size: KB.

John even gives us the reason for writing this gospel by writing that “Jesus did many other signs in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book; but these are written so. This book is a cry from the heart of John Piper. He is pleading that God himself, as revealed in Christ's death and resurrection, is the ultimate and greatest gift of the gospel.

What Is the Gospel by Greg Gilbert is another small book ( pages) in the 9Marks Building Healthy Churches series.

Gilbert provides an outstanding explanation of the Gospel. I first encountered his gospel paradigm of God, Man, Christ, Response in J. Packer's Evangelism and the Sovereignty of God /5.

And the gospel is received by faith; salvation is the gift of God (Ephesians –9). The gospel is the good news that God loves the world enough to give His only Son to die for our sin (John ).

The gospel is good news because our salvation and eternal life and home in heaven are guaranteed through Christ (John –4). A gospel (a contraction of Old English god spel meaning "good news/glad tidings", comparable to Greek εὐαγγέλιον, evangelion) is a written account of the career and teachings of Jesus.

The term originally meant the Christian message itself, but in the second century, it came to be used for the books in which the message was set out. Gospels are a genre of Early Christian literature. The gospel is the good news about what Jesus Christ has done to reconcile sinners to God.

Here’s the whole story: The one and only God, who is holy, made us in his image to know him (Gen. ). But we sinned and cut ourselves off from him (Gen. 3; Rom. ). Each point is covered in a chapter followed by chapters on the Kingdom, the Cross and the Power of the Gospel.

In general this is a very helpful corrective to contemporary aberration of the gospel (three are specifically addressed on p ff.) The book is not written in the language or style of a systematic theology yet it contains the truth.In God is the Gospel Piper passionately argues that the good news of the gospel is that we are given the greatest gift imaginable: God often we reduce the gospel to being a free ticket to heaven or a key to spiritual blessings.

What we forget is that the Gospel story is about God himself, and not about the rewards he will bestow on those who have come to know Jesus Christ.5/5(2).
