JESUS commanded:

Mark 1:15

King James Version

15 And saying, 

The time is fulfilled, 

and the kingdom of God is at hand: 

repent ye, 

and believe the gospel.

What is the gospel?

What did JESUS want us to believe?

What did He want His apostles to teach?

Apostle Paul speaks of the gospel of JESUS CHRIST here:

1 Corinthians 15:1-2

King James Version

15 Moreover, brethren, 

I declare unto you the gospel 

which I preached unto you, 

which also ye have received, 

and wherein ye stand;

2 By which also ye are saved, 

if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, 

unless ye have believed in vain.

1 Corinthians 15:3-4

King James Version

3 For I delivered unto you first of all 

that which I also received, 

how that Christ died for our sins 

according to the scriptures;

4 And that he was buried, 

and that he rose again the third day 

according to the scriptures:

1 Corinthians 15:5-8

King James Version

5 And that he was seen of Cephas, 

then of the twelve:

6 After that, 

he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; 

of whom the greater part remain unto this present, 

but some are fallen asleep.

7 After that, he was seen of James; 

then of all the apostles.

8 And last of all he was seen of me also, 

as of one born out of due time.

1 Corinthians 15:20-23

King James Version

20 But now is Christ risen from the dead, 

and become the firstfruits of them that slept.

21 For since by man came death, 

by man came also the resurrection of the dead.

22 For as in Adam all die, 

even so in Christ shall all be made alive.

23 But every man in his own order: 

Christ the firstfruits; 

afterward they that are Christ's 

at his coming.

1 Corinthians 15:24-26

King James Version

24 Then cometh the end, 

when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, 

even the Father; 

when he shall have put down all rule 

and all authority and power.

25 For he must reign, 

till he hath put all enemies under his feet.

26 The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.

1 Corinthians 15:27-28

King James Version

27 For he hath put all things under his feet. 

But when he saith all things are put under him, 

it is manifest that he is excepted, 

which did put all things under him.

28 And when all things shall be subdued unto him, 

then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him 

that put all things under him, 

that God may be all in all.

1 Corinthians 15:45

King James Version

45 And so it is written, 

The first man Adam was made a living soul; 

the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.

1 Corinthians 15:47

King James Version

47 The first man is of the earth, earthy; 

the second man is the Lord from heaven.

1 Corinthians 15:49

King James Version

49 And as we have borne the image of the earthy, 

we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.

1 Corinthians 15:50

King James Version

50 Now this I say, brethren, 

that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; 

neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.

1 Corinthians 15:51-54

King James Version

51 Behold, 

I shew you a mystery; 

We shall not all sleep, 

but we shall all be changed,

52 In a moment, 

in the twinkling of an eye, 

at the last trump: 

for the trumpet shall sound, 

and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, 

and we shall be changed.

53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, 

and this mortal must put on immortality.

54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, 

and this mortal shall have put on immortality, 

then shall be brought to pass 

the saying that is written, 

Death is swallowed up in victory.

1 Corinthians 15:56-57

King James Version

56 The sting of death is sin; 

and the strength of sin is the law.

57 But thanks be to God, 

which giveth us the victory 

through our Lord Jesus Christ.

2 Corinthians 4:5-6

King James Version

5 For we preach not ourselves, 

but Christ Jesus the Lord; 

and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake.

6 For God, 

who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, 

hath shined in our hearts, 

to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God 

in the face of Jesus Christ.

In light of the gospel, this is what is asked of us:

Matthew 5:48

King James Version

48 Be ye therefore perfect, 

even as your Father which is in heaven 

is perfect.

Mark 1:15

King James Version

15 And saying, 

The time is fulfilled, 

and the kingdom of God is at hand: 

repent ye, 

and believe the gospel.

1 Thessalonians 5:23

King James Version

23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; 

and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body 

be preserved blameless 

unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Unbelievers are in great danger from our sins, and from the enemy:

John 8:24

King James Version

24 I said therefore unto you, 

that ye shall die in your sins: 

for if ye believe not that I am he, 

ye shall die in your sins.

2 Corinthians 4:4

King James Version

4 In whom the god of this world 

hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, 

lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, 

who is the image of God, 

should shine unto them.

JESUS commanded His apostles to preach the good news:

Mark 16:15-16

King James Version

15 And he said unto them, 

Go ye into all the world, 

and preach the gospel to every creature.

16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; 

but he that believeth not shall be damned.
