SERMON BITES: What is the meaning of the word 'gospel'?

An important question increasingly asked by Evangelicals today is What is the gospel? Considerable confusion surrounds the term and clarification is needed.

In his sermon Strengthened for Work, from the new Tuesday series A Tonic for Summer, William Taylor investigates the secular origins of the word 'gospel'. He concludes that the fashionable notion of a 'gospel without words', which sits so easily with post-modern culture, is alien to the New Testament.

A godly life may help convince people of the truth of the gospel, but without the accompanying verbal message of the gospel, it leaves them in the dark.

What is the meaning of the word 'gospel'? is taken from the sermon Strengthened for Work, which can be found in our media library>>>
