Bible Study Guide

The Gospel of the Kingdom

Almost 2,000 years ago, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, came to earth prophesying a wonderful future for humanity after an intense period of earth-shaking calamities. His message, called 'the gospel', means 'good news'— the very good news the world desperately needs.

But what exactly is this good news (gospel) Jesus Christ preached? Is it only a wonderful story about Jesus Christ's birth, life, activities, death and resurrection? Certainly these are an integral part of the good news of God's plan for humanity (Mark 1:1). But there is so much more to His message!

The deeper and vastly more encompassing message Jesus taught is rarely heard. It is most certainly good news - the most wonderful news this tired, troubled world can hear.  It involves current news and affairs, history and prophecy, law, grace and hope for all mankind. It touches life and death, earth, heaven and beyond.

You need to know and understand what Jesus said!
