Basic Definitions of the Gospel

For your gospel intake here are three more basic definitions of the gospel that I have come across on the internet. If you have insightful comments or your own basic definition please add them.

Byron Scott
Jesus died so we could become everything God originally intended.

Byron Smith
The gospel, the good news, has everything to do with Jesus and consists in the claim that he is the Christ, the Messiah, the Son of God, the one who represents, brings and executes God’s redeeming rule.

Graeme Goldsworthy
The gospel is the word about Jesus Christ and what he did for us in order to restore us to a right relationship with God.

You can see an updated list of all the basic definitions I have posted so far here on Google Docs.
