The King Jesus Gospel book. Much needed corrective to soteric reductionism (sobering quote: "We have reduced the life of Jesus to Good Friday, and therefore reduced the gospel to the crucifixion, and then soterians have reduced Jesus to transactions of a Savior" - p. 119). My main quibble with McKnight is that he's given us a more or less snappy, little book, when such an important theme would have deserved a lengthier and even more nuanced treatment.

The King Jesus Gospel . The Original Good News Revisited. Scot McKnight, respected biblical theologian and professor of religious studies at North Park University (Chicago), seeks to reorient understanding of the gospel. He is urged on by two major evangelical thinkers. In the first foreword, N. T. Wright opines that the evangelical understanding of the gospel has shrunk down to a statement about Jesus’ death and its meaning, and a prayer with which people accept it (p. 13).

The King Jesus Gospel makes a plea for us to recover the old gospel as that which is still new and still fresh. This book succinctly and without pretense demonstrates that the gospel is defined by the apostles in 1 Corinthians 15 as the completion of the story of Israel in the saving story of Jesus. McKnight shows us that the gospel was preached by Jesus, and that the sermons in the Book of Acts are the best example of gospeling in the New Testament. Scot McKnight here presents, with great force and clarity, the one gospel of the Bible and of Jesus the King and Savior. Study the Gospels to see how Jesus did it, and then do it in the matter he did it.

Building on others, like NT Wright & Dallas Willard, Scot McKnight wrestles with our crystallized doctrines of salvation and wonders if modern Christianity (that developed during the pendulum swing of the Reformation) hasn't taken the Gospel of Jesus Christ and stripped it of its full meaning. It is the revealed interpretation of the life He intends for the Imagebearer.

Contemporary evangelicals have built a "salvation culture" but not a "gospel culture." Evangelicals have reduced the gospel to the message of personal salvation. This book makes a plea for us to recover the old gospel as that which is still new and still fresh. The book stands on four arguments: that the gospel is defined by the apostles in 1 Corinthians 15 as the completion of the Story of Israel in the saving Story of Jesus; that the gospel is found in the Four Gospels; that the gospel was preached by Jesus; and that the sermons in the Book of Acts are the best example of gospeling in the New Testament. The King Jesus Gospel ends with practical suggestions about evangelism and about building a gospel culture.

There are indeed some of the connecting points between the story of Israel, the Gospel message of Christ, the implications of personal salvation, and the method of persuasion of others of that salvation that even well-read Christians struggle with. This book attempts to identify the distinction between each of these four categories and properly explain how they relate to each other.

I do find it to be incredibly important that we not consider a person reached and to simply move on to the next person once they pray the sinner's prayer and accept Jesus. It is very important that they understand the larger Bible and how it all comes together. Some of the emails he includes in the book that he has received prove the need for some education as to the framework of the Biblical message and sadly reflect some of the questions I've been asked as well. If your people don't know what Jesus being the Messiah has to do with us being saved, or if they're asking if Jesus preached Paul's message, you would do well to spend more time teaching the actual content of the Bible rather than messages that build upon Biblical concepts your congregation isn't familiar with in the first place.

The author understandably spends quite a bit of time trying to reassure the reader that he is not speaking against personal salvation or the evangelism process, he is simply trying to get us to stop and spend some more time developing an understanding of the actual life and story of Jesus, and the rest of the Bible that is a very important part of the context and why we need a salvation in the first place.

He also spends some time highlighting that we are not done once we are saved and that there is a reason we are still here. Our behavior, actions, motivations, and routes through which we do evangelize and disciple others should be in keeping with what we know about Jesus. We are to live for Him in light of what He showed us. There is a lot more growth as a Christian that takes place after that conversion moment and too often Christians are allowed and even encouraged to sit in stagnation after that moment. If we really understood the Bible, it would not be the everyday car payments and such that take up 99% of our conscious awareness day in and day out.

McKnight does a wonderful job of working out an idea which has been proposed by several others pastors and scholars. This is the idea that biblical discipleship has all but fallen out of the mindset of the western church as an actual and necessary goal for those who would follow Jesus.This book is critical because it shows that the heart of the Gospel as understood by Jesus, the apostles, and the early church was a gospel which was all encompassing, beckoning the Christian to imitate all of Jesus' life and preach all of the gospel rather than simply to preach the plan of salvation. I value this work greatly as a pastor and as a denominational worker. We should be challenging our churches to embrace the gospel to the fullest extent in every way possible.

Another way of putting it is this: the gospel is the Story of Israel that finds resolution in the saving Story of Jesus, and that story is about God’s work in this world in the people of God.

The above quote from this very important book summarizes for me what Dr. Scot McKnight is trying to emphasize. I read his book twice because I wanted to make certain I had the answer to this this key question. What is the Gospel?

The Gospel is a big deal! We must get it right! This book will make certain we get it right. When we get it right, we are properly equipped to do God's work.

Before reading this book, my idea of the Gospel was way too small. It now is not. The Gospel is a story that first must be properly understood. Once understood, we will be ready to join and continue this story for future generations. This is a must read!

We have been teaching people they need to make a decision to believe in Jesus when we should have been directing people to follow Jesus. Of course you can't truly follow Jesus without belief, but after reading this book I think you can't really believe in Jesus without wanting to follow him. It's about far more than just deciding to believe in Jesus so I can be saved. When we teach people that Jesus is good for us because he saves us and then make discipleship (a whole-life following) to him a secondary aspect, we run the risk of people using Jesus as a mega-sized good luck charm...which is not really believing in Jesus. It's spiritualized self-preservation, which makes Jesus all about me, instead of making me all about Jesus.
