The Gospel Gong

Passage:Acts 5:27-32

Category: Redemption

Our reading from Acts gives us a glimpse of the earliest proclamatin of the Gospel, a simple message that rings and resonantes like a gong throughout the pages of Scripture and down through the ages. Both parts of the Gospel, Jesus crucified and Jesus raised from the dead, must be grasped in order to rightly ground and direct our faith. Today we look at the significance of these two components of the Gospel, crucifixion and resurrection, and what is at stake if we emphasize one part over the other, or neglect one part for the other.
