Richard Jordan was here in Maine last weekend, and I had wanted to question him about Paul’s message in Galatians 1: 8&9 where is states “let a person be accursed who preaches any other gospel than what he teaches.” That being so, would it be correct that the gospel is the whole message from Paul, not just the “salvation gospel” recorded in 1 Cor. 15. Thanks for taking the time to answer.

Yes, that is true, the “gospel” is includes more than just “how we are saved,” it includes “why we are save” and “what we are saved unto.”  However the immediate context of Gal 1:6-9 and all of chapters 1 & 2 concerns salvation by grace, justification by faith, apart from circumcision and works of the law.  It’s in chapters 3-5 where we see that the same grace that saves is the grace that forms Christ in us.

Without getting too lengthy, I hope this helps.
