What Exactly Is The Gospel?


I keep reading that Christians need to get back to the gospel. Or that we've gotten away from the gospel. Or that we've got to get the gospel right. But what exactly is the gospel? We are told it's a divine purpose. It's a historical event. Okay, but what is it exactly? It seems there is no end of talk about The Gospel but very little telling us what exactly the gospel is and what specifically it means for those to whom it was delivered. It's almost as if it's kept vague intentionally and that we're just supposed to know what it is through some sort of religious osmosis.

Christ's Return, The Hijacked Elephant

The Day of Trumpets, which heralds the beginning of the new civil year, in its duality marks the second coming of Jesus Christ. It is the day that Christians, unknowingly, have been looking forward to for millennia. And it was a high holy day that was observed millennia before that by the children of Israel.
