Someone requested that we do a short video on what is the "Gospel" according to what the Bible teaches. To honor their request we created this video. We immediately start out with a very short definition of the gospel which is "The Gospel of Jesus Christ, God in the flesh, lived a perfectly holy & righteous life in obedience to God the Father, in our place, suffered & died taking the penalty for sin that we deserved, was buried in a rich man's tomb, being dead, & rose again from the dead, conquering sin & death according to the Scriptures. All this was accomplished for us & for our salvation. It is a joyful proclamation that Christ has satisfied for all our sin * we stand in right relationship to the Triune God, as revealed by God the Holy Spirit through Holy Scripture."
From there this video expands into more & more detail as to what the gospel is & finishes with a warning to avoid false "gospels" which are everywhere to be found being promoted by false prophets that Jesus Himself warned about in Matthew 7:15.
Please use the time markers below to go deeper explanations of the Christian gospel:

In Greek, it is the word euaggelion, from which we get our English words evangelist, evangel, and evangelical. The gospel is, broadly speaking, the whole of Scripture; more narrowly, the gospel is the good news concerning Christ and the way of salvation.
The key to understanding the gospel is to know why it's good news. To do that, we must start with the bad news. The Old Testament Law was given to Israel during the time of Moses.
