What Is the Gospel?

When we’re hoping to understand what a word means, a dictionary is often a great place to start. But certain words require us to do more than simply read and memorize a definition. We shouldn’t be surprised, then, that when we read the dictionary definition of the word Gospel—“the message concerning Christ, the kingdom of God, and salvation”—we’re left with more questions. Who is this Christ? Where is His kingdom? What is salvation? A quick search on the internet tells us Gospel comes from a Greek word that means “good news”—but what exactly is this good news?

Video: "Murder and Mourning — Part One" by Alistair Begg

Learning of Abner’s peaceful release, David’s army commander, Joab, confronted the king, sent for Abner, then cruelly murdered him upon his return. Did Joab really care about the kingdom, or simply his status within it? Exploring this question, Alistair Begg notes that the ways of the servant are not always the ways of the king. When we’re tempted to believe our plans are best, Scripture reminds us that King Jesus is faithful to His plan and all comings and goings are under His sovereign hand.

Video: "Murder and Mourning — Part Two" by Alistair Begg

For David, Abner’s death was a cause not for celebration but for mourning. In his grief, David paid tribute to Abner and led his funeral, while Joab, having murdered Abner out of revenge, was met with a curse rather than a commendation. Joab’s experience is a warning to us, says Alistair Begg, when we’re tempted to advance God’s kingdom in a manner that is incompatible with our gentle, humble King.

Yet each of these explanations for suffering is, in its own way, inadequate.
