Jesus is God and sinless and He came and died, was buried, and rose again. This is the Good News or Gospel in that He “finished” or “paid in full” the price for our sin with His own precious blood and thereby conquered sin and death, saving those who will repent and believe from having to pay for their own sins in hell forever (John 19:30). Jesus Christ alone fulfilled to the detail over 300 prophecies given by God through His prophets and He alone was qualified to satisfy the claims of His Father’s justice to redeem fallen mankind. He shed His sinless blood for our sin and He alone can save.
1 Corinthians 15
1Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;
2By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
3For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
4And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
“The gospel” Paul preached was that “Christ died for our sins … he was buried …he rose again the third day.”
The apostle also tells us here that it is by THIS “gospel … ye are saved” and that you must “keep in memory” the truth contained in this blessed and only Gospel or you will not remain in Christ (John 15:1-6).
Jesus Christ paid a debt He did not owe and we owe a debt we cannot pay. So, to repent and receive Christ appropriates this unspeakable salvation into our personal lives!
Jesus Christ is unique in all of history. He alone was sent and died, was buried, and rose again to rescue mankind from the sin that separated fallen men from God.
“The essentials of the faith include the gospel: the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus (1 Cor 5:1-4), the triune nature of God (1 John 5:7), Jesus is only begotten Son of God (John 3:16), the virgin birth (Mat. 1:20-25) , salvation by faith through grace (Eph. 2:8), and the timing and consequences second coming of Christ (Rev. 22:18-19). The Word tells us believing in the doctrine of Christ is essential in having both the Father and His Son (2 John 1:9). It is critical Christians know how to defend against doctrines of demons and deceiving spirits that are distorting and compromising the essentials of the doctrine of Christ. (1 Tim 4:1, 1 John 2:25-29)” Paul Bortolazzo, author - http://www.paulbortolazzo.com
