The Gospel in a Nutshell
N.T. Wright: â€œWhen Paul talks about â€œthe gospel,â€ he means â€œthe good news that the crucified and risen Jesus is the Messiah of Israel and therefore the Lord of the world.â€ Now, thatâ€™s about as brief as you can do itâ€ (Interview with Trevin Wax).
Martin Luther: â€œThe gospel is a story about Christ, Godâ€™s and Davidâ€™s son, who died and was raised and is established as Lord. This is the gospel in a nutshellâ€ (Martin Lutherâ€™s Basic Theological Writings).
