‘The answer to our dilemma of how the gospel of the Kingdom and the gospel of the cross relate is that the gospel of the cross is integral to the gospel of the Kingdom if we understand both to mean expression of the same “gospel,” namely, Isaiah’s promised “gospel” of God.

The “gospel” then is the message that God acted in and through Jesus Messiah, God’s anointed one, to effect God’s promise of shalom, salvation, God’s reign.’

– Robert A. Guelich, ‘What is the Gospel?’
Inaugural Address, Fuller Theological Seminary (9 May 1989)
