Mike Ratliff: First the Bad News then the Good News

The word “gospel” comes from the Greek noun, “ευαγγελιον” or “euaggelion,” which means, “a good message” or “good news.” We also get our word “evangelize” from a related Greek verb, “ευαγγελισασθαι” or “euaggleizo,” which means to announce good news. What makes the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ good news? To understand that, we must first understand the “bad news.”
