Resurrecting the Gospel

I'm writing an article for AFES Salt Magazine on 'Resurrecting the gospel – why the resurrection lies at the heart of the gospel (1 Corinthians 15; the resurrection = the centre of the gospel formula of preaching in Acts)'.

What do you think I should say?

"Remember Jesus Christ, risen from the dead, the offspring of David, as preached in my gospel..."


Kudos for naming where the photo was taken.

Death is the one inescapable reality.

By defeating death, the gospel stands in stark contrast to religion and ideology. It is a truth as earthy as truth gets.

And I'd probably nail that to the theistic-evolution 'death is good' compromisers as well.

Cover, what it means for JC, what it means for God and what it means for us. The danger of focussing on the resurrection is it takes so much explaining and changing of worldview, even for christians. Because we are trying to explain the importance of resurrection and eschatology we end up talking about the general category of resurrection, rather than what it means for the crucified Jesus of Nazareth to be raised.
I'll chuck you my essay if you like
