The goal of Gospel Preaching when it pertains to Salvation, it was and is only limited to the Church, Body, that Christ gave Himself for Eph 5:23-26

23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the Saviour of the body.

24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.

25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;

26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,


And this also is spelled out in Eph 4:10-13

10 He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.)

11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;

12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:

13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:

You see that ? The Evangelist was given for the Body of Christ to edify it, when Phillip the Evangelist was sent to the Ethiopian Eunuch he was doing evangelism to teach one who belonged to the Church Christ died for. Acts 21:8


And the next day we that were of Paul's company departed, and came unto Caesarea: and we entered into the house of Philip the evangelist, which was one of the seven; and abode with him.

Acts 8:26-29

26 And the angel of the Lord spake unto Philip, saying, Arise, and go toward the south unto the way that goeth down from Jerusalem unto Gaza, which is desert.

27 And he arose and went: and, behold, a man of Ethiopia, an eunuch of great authority under Candace queen of the Ethiopians, who had the charge of all her treasure, and had come to Jerusalem for to worship,

28 Was returning, and sitting in his chariot read Esaias the prophet.

29 Then the Spirit said unto Philip, Go near, and join thyself to this chariot.

The Eunuch had been spiritually prepared to receive the instruction and Truth from Phillip !

The Gospel Ministry was limited [when it came to Salvation] for the conversion, edification and building up of the Body of Christ !

It was for the converting of the Body Col 1:24-25

24 Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh for his body's sake, which is the church:

25 Whereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you, to fulfil the word of God;

And Vs 25 here tells us that is why Paul by the Effectual Power of God and His Grace was made a Minister, to make known the Gospel Ministry to the Saints Vs 26

Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints:

Anyone Christ died for is #1 of His Body and #2 are saints, simply because His Death or Offering or giving of Himself for them doeth once and for all Sanctify them Heb 10:10

10 By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.

That makes them saints:

When Jesus sent out His disciples abroad with the Gospel, the main purpose was to teach the Gospel Truths to those that by and through His Resurrection, the Spirit hath given New Life unto ! Remember Jesus said for them to Teach Matt 28:19-20

19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

The first word teach in Vs 19 is the greek word matheteuo and means:


to be a disciple of one

a) to follow his precepts and instructions

2) to make a disciple

a) to teach, instruct

This therefore presupposes they would be in a spiritual condition to receive the instruction or to be made a disciple or follower !

The second word teaching in Vs 20 is the greek word didaskō which means to:


to teach

a) to hold discourse with others in order to instruct them, deliver didactic discourses

b) to be a teacher

c) to discharge the office of a teacher, conduct one's self as a teacher

2) to teach one

a) to impart instruction

b) instill doctrine into one

c) the thing taught or enjoined

d) to explain or expound a thing

f) to teach one something

Both of these took place on the Day of Pentecost, Peter instructed those here Acts 2:37-38

37 Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?

38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

Peter was giving instruction here to those who had been made spiritually alive by the Spirit !

Then they indoctrinated them Acts 2:41-42

41 Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.

42 And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.

So Jesus was merely telling them here in Matt 28:19-20 what He had told Peter earlier and that was to feed His Sheep and Lambs Jn 21:16-17

16 He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep.

17 He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.

Jesus had already promised they [His Sheep] shall hear His Voice through them Jn 10:16


16 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.

That is they will be spiritually ready to receive the Preaching and teaching and instruction of the sent Gospel Messengers !

When Christ sent Peter to the Gentile Cornelius with the Gospel, it was to feed His Sheep and to disciple him as commanded in Matt 28:19-20 Those whom Christ had cleansed with His Blood and quickened by His Spirit. Acts 10:15

And the voice spake unto him again the second time, What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common.

That word cleansed is the same word used in Heb 9:14 301

14 How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge or cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?

So that's who Jesus sent the Gospel to in regards to matters of Salvation, all those made alive by His resurrection 1 Pet 1:3 and in a spiritual capacity to receive Gospel instruction and doctrine !
Amen Brother, it's all those exclusively whom Christ Made Alive by His Resurrection,
Cleansed with His Blood, and Quickened by His Spirit Acts 10:15 in New Birth !

Did you read the op carefully? Let's go over the details
Preaching the gospel, so What is the gospel ?

I do not see a definition. Can you define the gospel ?

I read your details and there was no definition. Can you tell me how to get saved by telling me what is the gospel ?

How can I get saved without knowing what the gospel means ?

No it’s not since you cannot tell me what the gospel is “ friend “.


It’s like me asking you who Jesus is and you respond by telling me Jesus is Jesus read 500,000 posts where the word Jesus in mentioned without explaining who He is.

That is your method which is useless for any person wanting an answer from you.
