The simple truth of the Gospel is that Christ came into the world to redeem sinners. What God does in Christ is truly amazing. He takes sinners, separated from God because of sin, and reconciles them to Himself. Though the Gospel is simple to proclaim, much is going on behind the scenes in the moment of salvation. There is grace, adoption, propitiation, justification, reconciliation, regeneration, faith, election, substitution, perseverance, sanctification, and glorification all wrapped up in the “Good News” of Christ. 

The study you are about to begin attempts to unpack some of the nuanced theology of the Gospel. It’s a closer look at the core doctrines of the Cross in order to help us comprehend the magnitude of our salvation and the infinite greatness of our God. As believers, these are words we can live by. While we couldn’t possibly offer a full explanation of each subject in the format at hand, we hope the lessons to follow will offer insights into the great mystery of the Gospel. But above all, we hope this study will bring a greater assurance of our faith in Christ.
