Part of a week-long discussion of The King Jesus Gospel: The Original Good News Revisited by Scot McKnight
What’s the bottom line of Scot’s book? I think it’s this:
“We want to know what the first gospel was really like. We want to know how the first generation of apostles evangelized, and we want to know how that early gospeling compares to what we call evangelism and the gospel today.” (p. 114)
Scot wants to get back to the apostolic gospel, the first gospel. The real question, however, is this: Is a quest for the original gospel a fool’s errand?
