Did Jesus Preach the Gospel?

This is an important (12 minute) video that helps clarify how we read the gospels and talk about the kingdom.  I find the reason why Jesus’ Lordship replaces the “kingdom” talk in the epistles to be a very helpful reminder.  It is so wrong to pit the “gospel of Paul” and the “gospel of the kingdom against each other!!!

The article Keller refers to is Simon Gathercole, "The Gospel of Paul and the Gospel of the Kingdom" in God's Power to Save: One Gospel for a Complex World? ed. Christopher Green (UK: Apollos/Inter-Varsity Press, 2006).

I think we can't see the trees for all of the forest.

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.
