(Presentation at the Meeting of Hierarchs
of the Ecumenical Patriarchate – September 2021)

What is the Gospel?

Before we start discussing how we should go about proclaiming the Gospel in the 21st century, we first need to remind ourselves what the Gospel really is. The Greek word euangélion speaks for itself. The Gospel is the Good News. It conveys the message of the salvation of humankind through Jesus Christ. The Gospel proclaims humanity’s return to the paradise which waslost. The Gospel enables nothing less than the deification of man. Those who hear the Gospel and apply it in their lives enjoy a secure path of return to the Kingdom of God. They will be deified. The Gospel is the true word and promise of the God-Man Christ. The Gospel embodies “words of eternal life.”

Who is Christ?

Christ is the Only Begotten Son of God. Light of Light. True God. He is the only true God. He was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary and became man. He was crucified. He died on the cross. He descended triumphantly into hell. He was resurrected. He ascended to heaven. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead. His Kingdom will have no end…
