Unit 3: The Good News of God, the Gospel

Unit Overview

Gospel means “good news.” In the Bible, the gospel is the good news that God sent His Son, Jesus, to save sinners like you and me from the punishment we deserve for our sins.  That salvation is ours when we turn from our sins and trust in Jesus as our own Savior. Now that is good news indeed!

In this unit we are going to learn four truths that show us why the gospel is such good news.
