Rev. Jeff Meyers writes:
The Gospel can’t just be that God saves sinners or that he’s gracious and justifies those that have faith. That’s always been true. It wasn’t NEWS in the first century. The Good News, according to Apostles is that God has accomplished all that he has promised in the past by his Son uniting himself to our humanity and living, suffering, dying, rising, and ascending, all to deliver humanity and usher in a new world (Acts 2, etc.). The new news in the new age is that God the Father has installed the man, Jesus Christ, as Lord over his creation. God has always been Lord, but now Jesus is Lord.
