Jesus preached the gospel and it was this "The time is fulfilled (time prophecy) and the kingdom of God is at hand (nearness of the kingdom). Repent and believe in the gospel (turn from sin and believe the good news). He also taught as one having authority. This should characterize my gospel preaching and teaching.
