The Gospel of the Kingdom of GOD

Paul did not teach anything different than what Jesus taught about the Kingdom of GOD. There is ONLY ONE Saving Gospel.

The Gospel of GOD encompasses the Gospel of the Kingdom of GOD which is
the Gospel of Grace which is the Gospel of of Christ.

Mark 1:14-15 Jesus Preaches in Galilee
Now after John had been taken into custody, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, 15 and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.”

Luke 4:43 Jesus said, “I must preach the Gospel of the Kingdom of God…because that is why I was sent.”

Luke 9:1-2 Jesus called the Twelve together…and sent them out to preach the Kingdom of God.

Acts 1:3 Jesus appeared to them over a period of 40 days and spoke to them about the Kingdom of God.

Acts 8:12 “When they believed Philip as he preached the Gospel of the Kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ, they were being baptized, both men and women.”

Acts 20:25 [Paul went about] preaching the Kingdom.

Acts 28:31 Paul “boldly and without hindrance preached the Kingdom of God and taught about the lord Jesus Christ.” (PAUL TEACHING the Gospel of the Kingdom of GOD)

Matt. 24:14 “This Gospel of the Kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.”

Galatians 3:8 And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed.

After Jesus’ resurrection Jesus still spoke about the coming Kingdom of GOD for a  further 40 days. Acts 1:3
Paul taught the Gospel of the Coming Kingdom of GOD. THE GOSPEL of GOD encompasses the grace of GOD through which ALL Nations shall be blessed
Galatians 3:8.

Jesus died and being raised from the dead is ONLY Part of the Gospel. Jesus said I must preach the coming Kingdom of GOD for this is the reason I was sent. Luke 4:43. 
In 30 combined chapters in Matthew, Mark and Luke; Jesus spoke nothing of his death and Resurrection. Throughout these 30 chapters Jesus and his disciples were preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom of God.

LORD or Lord? — Knowing God

I used to teach that Jesus being called Lord meant that he was Yehovah the all caps LORD of the OT. I would take Paul’s conversion where he is encountered by the Lord in Acts 9 and say here Jesus identifies himself as Yehovah. Paul as a Jew knowing God was one LORD, ask who […]

Dale Tuggy vs. Michael Brown Debate: Is the God of the Bible the Father Alone?

The length of the debate is 2hr45mins

Dale Tuggy’s Opening Statement

  • The Father is the only God (1 Cor 8.6; John 8.54)
  • Jesus is not God but messiah, God’s agent (1 Tim 2.5)

Compare 2 hypotheses in light of 6 indisputable facts
1. NT believe Father is one God alone
2. NT believes one God is the Trinity

6 Indisputable Facts

  1. All 4 Gospels feature a “mere man” compatible main thesis
    • John 20.31 -> that’s it? nothing about Jesus being God
  2. The word God nearly always refers to the Father and no word refers to the Trinity
    • they should sometimes use the word God to refer to the Trinity
      but they never do
    • in the NT God is nearly always the Father
    • no more than 8 texts where the term God refers to the Son
    • a human can be referred to with the title God
    • Jesus makes that point in Psalm 82
  3. Only the Father and Jesus are worshiped
    • no worship of the Trinity
    • no worship of all 3 persons -> no spirit!
    • Phil 2.11 says that Jesus’ worship is indirectly to God
    • by worshiping Jesus we worship the creator
  4. That God is triune or tripersonal is never clearly asserted in the NT
    • poor Jewish theology is always assumed
    • Jesus never gets around to telling us that God is 3 persons in 1 essence
  5. No controversy about the Trinity in the NT
    • Trinity theories always engender controversy
    • the NT controversies are over whether Jesus is messiah and whether non-Jews can be saved apart from Torah observance
  6. No NT author lifts a finger to limit or qualify clear implications of the son’s limitations
    • Jesus got his mission, authority, message, power, from God
    • no author shows any embarrassment that Jesus is subordinate

Jesus is a real human man

  • with a real human mother
  • but with God as his father
  • he was brought into existence in the womb

the one God is eternal

  • why aren’t the NT authors at all concerned to exert the eternal existence of the son
  • will grant pre-existence but not eternality for purposes of this debate
