The Gospel

The word "Gospel" means "Good News."  Since we can never come into God's presence in our sins, God sent Jesus to die for our sins, and then raised Him from the dead on the third day.

Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel . . . that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures; and that He was buried, and that He rose again on the third day according to the Scriptures.   I Corinthians 15:1-4

The Gospel Is That Christ Died For Our Sins And Rose Again From The Dead

Jesus Tore Down The Barrier Of Sin By Dying For
Our Sins, And Rising Again From The Dead.
Many people truly believe that Jesus died and arose from the dead, but what does the Bible mean when it says that Jesus died "for our sins"? How did His death tear down the barrier between God and man?

The Problem:
   God Must Punish Sin

The Bible tells us that since God is holy and just, He must punish sin.

Let no man deceive you with vain words, for because of these things comes the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. Ephesians 5:6

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of man.  Romans 1:18

God Must Pour Out His Wrath Upon Sin

God's justice requires that man must pay for the sins which he has committed against Holy God by suffering God's eternal punishment.  (Also see 2 Thess. 1:8-9; Matthew 25:46; Revelation 20:10)   How Christ freed us from God's wrath through His own death can be explained in three steps.
