The Gospel of Christ is the divine message of God’s love, of faith, of redemption and reconciliation, of salvation, of resurrection, of judgment, and of eternal life for those who believe in Him. Its purpose is to reestablish the holiness and righteousness of all that He had .   The book is full of the records of original discourses and conversation of Jesus Christ which gives authority to the Gospel. Jesus Himself said. " the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit and they are life," Jn It means that whoever listens to and believes in the words of Jesus will have life which is eternal. John's prime concern is to prove that Jesus is the only Son of God, the only . Many of us go straight to its most famous verse, John , and assume that the book is about eternal life. But what if John has something different—and much more robust—in mind? This idea is addressed in our forthcoming course, Themes in the Gospel of John. THE ETERNAL GOSPEL. This judgment of the nations by the Lord will not be without a warning. Revelation says, "And I saw another angel flying in mid-heaven, having an eternal gospel to announce to those settled on the earth, and to every nation and tribe and tongue and people, saying with a loud voice, Fear God and give Him glory, because the hour of His judgment has come; and worship.

"For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." Romans The Bible is quite clear. We all sin and therefore we all die. Death, the Bible teaches, is a punishment. It is literal. It is very real. The dead are unconscious (see Ecclesiastes ). A very bleak and to.   The vision in Revelation 14 in which the angel proclaims the everlasting gospel is a prediction of something that will happen in the tribulation. Before the seven final judgments—the seven bowls of Revelation 15–16—God will give all of mankind one last opportunity to turn from their sin and trust in Christ to receive His gift of eternal life. The angel broadcasts the everlasting gospel to the . Verse 3. - The life eternal, of which Jesus has just spoken, is this (cf. for construction, John ; 1 John , 23; 1 John ), that they might know - should come to know - thee, the only veritable ideas of God which deviate from or fall short of "the Father" revealed to us by Christ, are not the veritable God, and the knowledge of them is not life eternal. The Gospel of John is the gospel of belief. It presents, better than any other book in the Bible, the single condition for receiving eternal life. The Gospel of John shows that eternal life is given to anyone who simply and only believes in Jesus for it (John ; ; ; etc.). But the Gospel of .

The gospel of the kingdom was to set man free and inspire him to dare to hope for eternal life. ~ The Urantia Book, By the time the Apostle John began to write the story of Jesus' life and teachings, the early Christians had experienced so much trouble with the kingdom-of-God idea as a breeder of persecution that they had largely abandoned the. Eternal life is a central theme of the Gospel of John. This life is both a present reality as well as a future hope. It is unique in its nature, in both quantity and quality, and it comes by knowing God through his Son, Jesus Christ.   Characterized throughout by gracious, penetrating engagement with the Fourth Gospel and its modern readers and by maturity of reflection and insight, The God of the Gospel of John is a most welcome harbinger of the future of New Testament by:   Eternal life is a term that Christians leisurely toss around like a Frisbee at the church picnic. But what does it mean? This is obviously an important question to answer. It is in fact one of the main implications of the gospel itself. Consider the famous words of John 3: For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
