Okay Brandon answer that question for the progressive who says Jesus could be preaching the gospel because of the Gospels about him dying. He was preaching it before he actually died.

How would you answer that that issue and why is this typical of how progressive Christians twist things. The gospel is primarily a person like as Alister begs the Jesus is himself the gospel so it's his person and work so included in that is who he is and what he has done to reconcile sinners to God. When Jesus is living out the gospel and he's doing his earthly ministry. In the present. He'll say follow me when Paul is talking about Jesus and what he is what he is done in the past you is basically saying follow Christ. We preach Christ crucified repent and believe the gospel so it's the same thing in one sense, you have the gospel in flesh telling people to follow him. He hasn't worked out everything he was going to do yet.

As far as dying but he still at the same time will say things like I am the good shepherd who lays down his life for a sheep.

So he is talking about what he's going to do. You'll hear a lot of progressives talk about the gospel of the kingdom. It might be hard for them to express what that is but a lot of times it ends up being something about social justice like Jesus came to help the poor and the outcast, but when we talk about the kingdom of God, we first have to remember that Jesus himself was that King and he claimed to be the long-awaited Messiah and when he preached the kingdom it was the forgiveness of sins. He had the authority to forgive and the Pharisees heard him do that and said that was blasphemy because he was basically claiming to be God so Jesus is gospel of the kingdom you have Jesus forgiving sins based on the sacrifice that he was heading toward and in the gospel that Paul preaches it's the same thing believe in this king Jesus our Messiah for the forgiveness of sins. There's really no difference.

It's just kind of a matter of perspective
