What Is the Gospel?

by Roby Ellis          SPANISH/ESPAÑOL


A. If you have ever wondered what it would be like to listen to Paul preach, Acts 13 is a great source.

B. In this sermon Paul talks about the “Good News,” the Gospel. What does this sermon tell us about the Gospel we preach?

I. The Gospel is positive.

A. These are encouraging words (vss. 15,45,48).

B. The Good News constituted the fulfillment of ancient promises (vss. 32-37).

C. The Good News was a declaration of the forgiveness of sins and of justification (vss. 38-39; Hebrews 10:1-10; Galatians 3:10-13).

D. The Good News is for all nations (vss. 46-47; Romans 1:16).

II. The Gospel is powerful.

A. There is a power of attraction in the Gospel (vss. 43-44).

B. The Gospel often stirs up strong emotions (vss. 45-52).

C. There is still extraordinary power in the Gospel of Christ (1 Corinthians 1:18).

III. The Gospel is personal.

A. Paul told the people of Antioch that this Good News was for them (vs. 26; cf. 2:39).

B. The good news of the Gospel is for us as well (Hebrews 11:39-40).


A. Although it is not always well received, it is always good news.

B. The Good News is worth repeating (Acts 14:21-22).
