Description

"The aim of the preaching of the Gospel," says W.E. Vine, "is to bring people into a life of conformity to the will of God, of devotion to Christ, and of serving Him in His eternal Kingdom." Such an abundant life brings joy and the "hope of the Gospel." This is the heart of what it means to be a Christian.

What are the details behind these statements? W.E. Vine explains the theology of the Gospel and shows how it should be taught. He begins with God and with Christ as Lord. Our sin necessitated the death of Christ on the cross. Christ is our propitiation, our vicarious sacrifice, our redeemer. The author includes chapters on the resurrection of Christ, justification by faith, repentance, righteousness, the Holy Spirit and the New Birth, sanctification, and the Lord's second advent.

Christ is at the center of the Gospel, and so this ebook contains six other articles about the person and work of Christ, including an exploration of the relationship between God the Father and God the Son, what is meant by the term "Christ the firstborn," and the work of Christ in the atonement. A picture of Christ, like a diamond, has many facets — the perfect servant, His sinlessness, His atoning sacrifice, His resurrection, His ascension, His high priesthood, and His coming again. Vine carefully explores each facet.

God sent His Only Begotten Son into the world that we might live through Him. "We may be thankful," says W.R. Lewis, "for these helps toward understanding the great mystery of God's love."

About the Author(s)

William Edwy Vine (1873-1949), commonly known as W. E. Vine, is considered one of the world's foremost Greek and biblical scholars. His Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words has been a bestselling classic, popular with generations of Bible scholars and students. Yet he wrote much more than the famous dictionary. His timeless biblical commentaries were marked by careful exegetical word study and expository insight.

W.E. Vine worked for Echoes of Service, an organization that supported missionaries around the world. At one time, he kept six secretaries busy corresponding with more than 1,000 missionaries.

"Mr. Vine shows," said F.F. Bruce, "how great a service can be rendered to the Church by well-balanced, all-around scholarship when it is combined with reverent submission to the Word of God and spiritual insight into its meaning.... The Scriptures' chief function is to bear witness of Christ, and the chief end of their study is to increase our inward knowledge of Him.... Mr. Vine, in all his study and writing, would not be content with any aim lower than this for himself and his readers alike."
