Gospel 

A — 1: εὐαγγέλιον
(Strong's #2098 — Noun Neuter — euangelion — yoo-ang-ghel'-ee-on )

originally denoted a reward for good tidings; later, the idea of reward dropped, and the word stood for "the good news" itself. The Eng. word "gospel," i.e. "good message," is the equivalent of euangelion (Eng., "evangel"). In the NT it denotes the "good tidings" of the Kingdom of God and of salvation through Christ, to be received by faith, on the basis of His expiatory death, His burial, resurrection, and ascension, e.g., Acts 15:7 ; 20:24 ; 1 Peter 4:17 . Apart from those references and those in the Gospels of Matthew and Mark, and Revelation 14:6 , the noun is confined to Paul's Epistles. The Apostle uses it of two associated yet distinct things, (a) of the basic facts of the death, burial and resurrection of Christ, e.g., 1 Corinthians 15:1-3 ; (b) of the interpretation of these facts, e.g., Romans 2:16 ; Galatians 1:7,11 ; 2:2 ; in (a) the "Gospel" is viewed historically, in (b) doctrinally, with reference to the interpretation of the facts, as is sometimes indicated by the context.


The following phrases describe the subjects or nature or purport of the message; it is the "gospel" of God, Mark 1:14 ; Romans 1:1 ; 15:16 ; 2 Corinthians 11:7 ; 1 Thessalonians 2:2,9 ; 1 Peter 4:17 ; God, concerning His Son, Romans 1:1-3 ; His Son, Romans 1:9 ; Jesus Christ, the Son of God, Mark 1:1 ; our Lord Jesus, 2 Thessalonians 1:8 ; Christ, Romans 15:19 , etc.; the glory of Christ, 2 Corinthians 4:4 ; the grace of God, Acts 20:24 ; the glory of the blessed God, 1 Timothy 1:11 ; your salvation, Ephesians 1:13 ; peace, Ephesians 6:15 . Cp. also "the gospel of the Kingdom," Matthew 4:23 ; 9:35 ; 24:14 ; "an eternal gospel," Revelation 14:6 . In Galatians 2:14 , "the truth of the gospel" denotes, not the true "gospel," but the true teaching of it, in contrast to perversions of it. The following expressions are used in connection with the "Gospel:" (a) with regard to its testimony; (1) kerusso, "to preach it as a herald," e.g., Matthew 4:23 ; Galatians 2:2 (see PREACH); (2) laleo, "to speak," 1 Thessalonians 2:2 ; (3) diamarturomai, "to testify (thoroughly)," Acts 20:24 ; (4) euangelizo, "to preach," e.g., 1 Corinthians 15:1 ; 2 Corinthians 11:7 ; Galatians 1:11 (see B, No. 1 below); (5) katangello, "to proclaim," 1 Corinthians 9:14 ; (6) douleuo eis, "to serve unto" ("in furtherance of"), Philippians 2:22 ; (7) sunathleo en, "to labor with in," Philippians 4:3 ; (8) hierourgeo, "to minister," Romans 15:16 ; (8) pleroo, "to preach fully," Romans 15:19 ; (10) sunkakopatheo, "to suffer hardship with," 2 Timothy 1:8 ; (b) with regard to its reception or otherwise: (1) dechomai, "to receive," 2 Corinthians 11:4 ; hupakouo, "to hearken to, or obey," Romans 10:16 ; 2 Thessalonians 1:8 ; pisteuo en, "to believe in," Mark 1:15 ; metastrepho, "to pervert," Galatians 1:7 . Note: In connection with (a), the Apostle's statement in 1 Corinthians 9:23 is noticeable, "I do all things for the Gospel's sake, that I may be a joint partaker thereof," RV, for the incorrect AV, "that I might be partaker thereof with you."

B — 1: εὐαγγελίζω
(Strong's #2097 — Verb — euangelizo — yoo-ang-ghel-id'-zo )

"to bring or announce glad tidings" (Eng., "evangelize"), is used (a) in the Active Voice in Revelation 10:7 ("declared") and Revelation 14:6 ("to proclaim," RV, AV, "to preach"); (b) in the Passive Voice, of matters to be proclaimed as "glad tidings," Luke 16:16 ; Galatians 1:11 ; 1 Peter 1:25 ; of persons to whom the proclamation is made, Matthew 11:5 ; Luke 7:22 ; Hebrews 4:2,6 ; 1 Peter 4:6 ; (c) in the Middle Voice, especially of the message of salvation, with a personal object, either of the person preached, e.g., Acts 5:42 ; 11:20 ; Galatians 1:16 , or, with a preposition, of the persons evangelized, e.g., Acts 13:32 , "declare glad tidings;" Romans 1:15 ; Galatians 1:8 ; with an impersonal object, e.g., "the word," Acts 8:4 ; "good tidings," Acts 8:12 ; "the word of the Lord," Acts 15:35 ; "the gospel," 1 Corinthians 15:1 ; 2 Corinthians 11:7 ; "the faith," Galatians 1:23 ; "peace," Ephesians 2:17 ; "the unsearchable riches of Christ, Ephesians 3:8 .


B — 2: προευαγγελίζομαι
(Strong's #4283 — Verb — proeuangelizomai — pro-yoo-ang-ghel-id'-zom-ahee )

"to announce glad tidings beforehand," is used in Galatians 3:8 .

Note: For other verbs see above.

1Cor.4

  1. [15] For though ye have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet have ye not many fathers: for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel.

2Cor.4

2Cor.8

  1. [18] And we have sent with him the brother, whose praise is in the gospel throughout all the churches;

2Cor.9

  1. [13] Whiles by the experiment of this ministration they glorify God for your professed subjection unto the gospel of Christ, and for your liberal distribution unto them, and unto all men;

2Cor.10

  1. [14] For we stretch not ourselves beyond our measure, as though we reached not unto you: for we are come as far as to you also in preaching the gospel of Christ:
  2. [16] To preach the gospel in the regions beyond you, and not to boast in another man's line of things made ready to our hand.

2Cor.11

  1. [4] For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.
  2. [7] Have I committed an offence in abasing myself that ye might be exalted, because I have preached to you the gospel of God freely?

Gal.1

  1. [6] I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:
  2. [7] Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.
  3. [8] But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
  4. [9] As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.
  5. [11] But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man.

Gal.2

  1. [2] And I went up by revelation, and communicated unto them that gospel which I preach among the Gentiles, but privately to them which were of reputation, lest by any means I should run, or had run, in vain.
  2. [5] To whom we gave place by subjection, no, not for an hour; that the truth of the gospel might continue with you.
  3. [7] But contrariwise, when they saw that the gospel of the uncircumcision was committed unto me, as the gospel of the circumcision was unto Peter;
  4. [14] But when I saw that they walked not uprightly according to the truth of the gospel, I said unto Peter before them all, If thou, being a Jew, livest after the manner of Gentiles, and not as do the Jews, why compellest thou the Gentiles to live as do the Jews?

Gal.3

  1. [8] And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed.

Gal.4

  1. [13] Ye know how through infirmity of the flesh I preached the gospel unto you at the first.

Eph.1

  1. [13] In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,

Eph.3

  1. [6] That the Gentiles should be fellowheirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel:

Eph.6

  1. [15] And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
  2. [19] And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,

Phil.1

  1. [5] For your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now;
  2. [7] Even as it is meet for me to think this of you all, because I have you in my heart; inasmuch as both in my bonds, and in the defence and confirmation of the gospel, ye all are partakers of my grace.
  3. [12] But I would ye should understand, brethren, that the things which happened unto me have fallen out rather unto the furtherance of the gospel;
  4. [17] But the other of love, knowing that I am set for the defence of the gospel.
  5. [27] Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel;

Phil.2

  1. [22] But ye know the proof of him, that, as a son with the father, he hath served with me in the gospel.

Phil.4

  1. [3] And I intreat thee also, true yokefellow, help those women which laboured with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and with other my fellowlabourers, whose names are in the book of life.
  2. [15] Now ye Philippians know also, that in the beginning of the gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church communicated with me as concerning giving and receiving, but ye only.

Col.1

  1. [5] For the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, whereof ye heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel;
  2. [23] If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which ye have heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister;

1Thes.1

  1. [5] For our gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Ghost, and in much assurance; as ye know what manner of men we were among you for your sake.

1Thes.2

  1. [2] But even after that we had suffered before, and were shamefully entreated, as ye know, at Philippi, we were bold in our God to speak unto you the gospel of God with much contention.
  2. [4] But as we were allowed of God to be put in trust with the gospel, even so we speak; not as pleasing men, but God, which trieth our hearts.
  3. [8] So being affectionately desirous of you, we were willing to have imparted unto you, not the gospel of God only, but also our own souls, because ye were dear unto us.
  4. [9] For ye remember, brethren, our labour and travail: for labouring night and day, because we would not be chargeable unto any of you, we preached unto you the gospel of God.

1Thes.3

  1. [2] And sent Timotheus, our brother, and minister of God, and our fellowlabourer in the gospel of Christ, to establish you, and to comfort you concerning your faith:

2Thes.1

  1. [8] In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:

2Thes.2

  1. [14] Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

1Tim.1

  1. [11] According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust.

2Tim.1

  1. [8] Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God;
  2. [10] But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:

2Tim.2

  1. [8] Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David was raised from the dead according to my gospel:

Phlm.1

  1. [13] Whom I would have retained with me, that in thy stead he might have ministered unto me in the bonds of the gospel:

Heb.4

  1. [2] For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.

1Pet.1

  1. [12] Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.

 

1Pet.1

  1. [25] But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.

1Pet.4

  1. [6] For for this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit.
  2. [17] For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?

Rev.14

  1. [6] And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people,
