    There is a serious issue in the body of Christ that causes much division and many questions to skeptics and people outside of the faith. That is, “What about those who have never heard the gospel?” This brings many other questions. Do those who never hear the gospel go to Heaven? If someone never heard of the good news in their whole life would God spare them anyway and make them be exempt from judgment?

    Simply stated, “the word "gospel" means simply good news.” With that definition, then the good news would summarize all of the information found in the New Testament and the teachings of Jesus Christ. The Apostle Paul recaps the most basic components in the gospel message. These are found in 1 Corinthians 15:1-8, specifically listed in 15:3-4 (NRSV) “For I handed on to you as of first importance what I in turn had received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the scriptures, and that

    The Gospels are stories of Jesus’ life and teachings, told by Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, in the first four books of the New Testament.

    the content and the practices of the faith two thousand years later is also remarkable. The four Gospels stand at the head of the New Testament, underlining their importance, forming a “seamless continuity between the story of Israel and the story of the church”.

    Compare and contrast the birth narratives in the Gospel of Matthew and that of the Gospel of Luke. The birth narrative of Matthew begins with a long genealogy of Jesus, which basically shows how Jesus is son of Abraham who is the father of the nation of Israel, and David the King of the Jews. This may not seem important but this genealogy shows how Jesus is connected to the Davidic line. Then we have Mary, who just found out she was pregnant and Joseph decides it is best to divorce her because

    than any other time in this nations’ history. Since the majority of Americans profess Christ as their Lord and Savior, the all-powerful God, creator of heaven and earth, who is above all, in all, and through all, where is the evidence of Him?
