Israel’s Great Commission, Part 4

Which Gospel Was Preached?

Preach the gospel (Mark 16:15).

Which “gospel” were Israel’s Apostles commissioned to preach? There are, in fact, a number of evangels in the Scriptures: “the gospel of the Kingdom of Heaven,” “the gospel of the Circumcision,” “the gospel of the Uncircumcision,” “the age-lasting gospel,” “the gospel of the Grace of God,” etc.

The gospel mentioned in the “Great Commission” is denoted simply as “the gospel,” showing that it had already been defined in the so-called “Gospels” (i.e., Matthew, Mark, Luke and John).

This “gospel” could not be “the gospel of the Grace of God” which was later revealed and committed to Paul (i.e., “my gospel – Romans 2:16; 16:25-26; II Timothy 2:8), for it was still hidden at this time.

Upon further study, one will note that the “gospel” of the “Great Commission” clearly is Israel’s “gospel of the Kingdom” (Matthew 4:23; 9:35; Mark 1:14). It is the “good news” of the coming of their prophesied, literal, physical, earthly, kingdom. This gospel, which during this age has been put on hold, will be preached again one day by Israel after the fullness of the Gentiles has come in (c.f. Matthew 24:14).
