The Unabridged Gospel

GospelThis page contains the audio of a Sunday School Series I’m teaching entitled The Unabridged Gospel.

The Evangelical church is guilty great narcissism in our gospel message. Rather than emphasize the death, resurrection and Lordship of Christ (1 Corinthians 15:3-5; Romans 10:9-10) we have placed an overwhelming emphasis on our personal eschatology, using Jesus as a means to salvation rather proclaiming Him as Lord.

As a corrective, this series seeks to present the gospel in its fullness by: 1) Investigating the Old Testament to form the basis for Jesus self-understanding and vocation, and 2) Demonstrating how Jesus intentionally inherited the identity and mission of Israel while simultaneously becoming their hope.

All the above serves as puzzle pieces of the gospel which, when put together, reveal a picture of the face of Jesus Christ (2 Corinthians 4:6)
