Shortly before his ascension, our Lord Jesus Christ gave one simple, specific command to his disciples: “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.” In the Book of Acts, as well as in other New Testament writings, we see men and women obeying this command and sharing the gospel “in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.”
The word “gospel” literally means “good news.” What was the good news that the disciples were to deliver? It is briefly summarized in 1 Corinthians 15:
1 Corinthians 15:1–4Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;
By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures.
