The gospel according to Steve Timmis based on his study of Mark: “Jesus, God’s promised rescuer and ruler lived the life that we couldn’t live and died a death that we should’ve died, and rose again in triumphant vindication as the firstfruits of the new creation to bring forgiven sinners together under his gracious rule.”
He critiqued Mark Dever and John Piper’s definition of lacking the new creation and community aspect. Though he gladly affirms the cross and all that the two brothers have said. I think that Greg Gilbert’s articles on the gospel (part 1, part 2, and part 3) are clarifying. Furthermore, I think an absence of justification by faith alone leaves out an important aspect of the gospel message, so important that if you reject it Paul says you have a different gospel in the book of Galatians.
