For decades the evangelical protestant church in America has preached a salvation-centric Gospel of Christ. Today, almost half of protestants believe this is the complete gospel and their churches have aligned their teachings to “seek and save the lost” only. In doing so, they relegated the life, words, and works of Jesus to a secondary, non-gospel status.
But, what if the story of Jesus, passed down to us in the New Testament (especially
Mark, Matthew and Luke), describing His life, actions, death and resurrection, accurately portrays the whole story of Jesus, the Son of God, as He lived among us and still lives with us, showing us how to live out the kingdom of God on earth?
What if Jesus’s life was a living gospel, as He said it was, yet it has been forgotten by the evangelical protestant churches in America? And if this forgotten gospel has been ignored, what should the church do about it?
The purpose of this book is to explore how the life, words, and works of Jesus can bring churches, pastors, denominations, and members back to the Complete Gospel of Jesus, the Christ.
