After a losing fight with a porcupine, this dog is doing fine, and now that we know it’s fine … what does this picture bring to mind? Who is this dog’s analogy in our world? Which Church leader feels like […]

Gospel 42

posted by Scot McKnight

We skip in Romans from Romans 2 to Romans 10 to find the next use of “gospel.”  There are two uses of “gospel/gospeling” in Romans 10:15-16 and I have provided additional verses to exhibit the context:
