* Good News-¬† We use it so glibly in the church today. Preachers say they preach the gospel, but if we listen to them preach Sunday after Sunday, we hear very little gospel in what they are preaching. The term gospel has become a nickname for preaching anything rather than something with definitive content. The word ‚Äúgospel‚ÄĚ is the word Evangelion. It has that prefix eu-, which comes into English in a variety of words. We talk about Heavenly Hands by Greg Olsen limited edition printeuphonic or euphonious music, which refers to something that sounds good. We talk about a eulogy, or a euphemism which is a good word pronounced about someone at his funeral service. The prefix eu- refers to “something good or pleasant”. The word Angelos¬†or Evangelion¬†is the word for ‚Äúmessage.‚ÄĚ Angels are messengers, and¬†Angelos¬†is one who delivers a¬†message. This word¬†Evangelion, which means ‚Äúgood message‚ÄĚ or ‚Äúgood news,‚ÄĚ has a rich background in the Old Testament. There, the basic meaning of the term gospel was simply an announcement of a good message.
In ancient days when soldiers went out to battle, people waited breathlessly for a report from the battlefield about the outcome. Once the outcome was known, marathon runners dashed back to give the report. That is why Isaiah wrote, ‚ÄúHow beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings “Good News‚ÄĚ (Isa. 52:7). The watchman in the watchtower would look as far as the eye could see into the distance. Finally, he would see the dust moving as the runner sped back to the city to give the report of the battle. The watchmen were trained to tell by the way the runner‚Äôs legs were churning whether the news was good or bad. If the runner was doing the survival shuffle, it indicated a grim report, but if his legs were flying and the dust was kicking up, that meant good news. That is the concept of the gospel in its most rudimentary¬†sense.
