For the first century Christian's the Good News was no mystery it only became a mystery when the legal minded of weed Christian's over took the world wide field of wheat of God's planting.

Those first century Christian's received the imperishable life of Christ Jesus, they became a “new creation” with a new personality formed by God's righteousness into the body of Christ by the law of the body of Christ, love. They walk in truth, because Christ Jesus is the Truth and head of their body. Moreover, they were in the Temple of God, in being made part of it, by God's unmerited kindness to them. They did not have to go anywhere to communion with God, God was in them by the life of Christ Jesus making them a temple too God.

Truth was not a word found in the bible they were instead “in the truth”, that is, in Christ Jesus, and he was in them. This was their Good News, a living Good News working through them, not some legal definitions thought up by a fleshly mind as a doctrine, but all of the life of Christ was truth and Good News, which they carried with them where every they were at, preaching too others about the life in them.

It was not what WTS members preach today, not even close, it was not a legal point argued from the bible nor did those first century Christian's have to have its message legislated into them by fleshly meetings, they had the new covenant written into their hearts leading them by spirit into all truth.

Babble all you WISH: Jesus SPECIFIED what the Good News preached in the Last Days would be about; a subject of which you know NOTHING.

Hint: News REALLY DOES mean "news", not ancient history.

Yes- hate of evil IS my theme- especially when most like you DESPISE what is true.

YOU are the one claiming to know the Good News- YOU tell all of US what Jesus HIMSELF said it would be about.

Or just ADMIT you're ignorant on the matter.

And this good news of the kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations; and then the end will come.

Let your kingdom come. Let your will take place, as in heaven, also upon the earth.

And Jesus set out on a tour of all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues and preaching the good news of the kingdom and curing every sort of infirmity. "Yes, the harvest is great, but the workers are few."

Christ suffered for you, leaving you a model for you to follow his steps closely...For you were like sheep, going astray; but now you have returned to the shepherd and overseer of your souls.

Most trully I say to you, He that exercises faith in me, that one also will do the works that I do; adn he will do works greater than these, because I am going my way to the Father.

As you go, preach, saying,'The kingdom of the heavens has drawn near.' Cure sick people, raise up dead persons, make lepers clean, expel demons. You received free, give free.

The power behind the preaching of the good news was, and is the life of Christ Jesus working through God's anointed follower, it was not broke down into legal words and legislated by legal definition of preaching to make sure the good news was present a certain way.

1Cor.4:5 For we don't preach ourselves, but Christ Jesus as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus' sake; 4:6 seeing it is God who said, "Light will shine out of darkness,"{Genesis 1:3} who has shone in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. 4:7 But we have this treasure in clay vessels, that the exceeding greatness of the power may be of God, and not from ourselves.

Acts 13:4 So, being sent out by the Holy Spirit, they went down to Seleucia. From there they sailed to Cyprus.

Hence, it was a Spirit lead work under the direction of Christ Jesus making divine appointments with those Christ had come into their hearts and sup with after his knocking. The vessel, or the person under direction of the same Holy Spirit being a part of the body of Christ Jesus, was a slave in Christ Jesus as a body member, was spiritually directed to the person as they listen to Spirit of the congregation.

Revelation 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, then I will come in to him, and will dine with him, and he with me.

Acts 11:12 The Spirit told me to go with them, without discriminating. These six brothers also accompanied me, and we entered into the man's house.

Romans 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are children of God.

Romans 8:11 But if the Spirit of him who raised up Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised up Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you.

They need not worry about being taken care of Christ Jesus would make all the arrangement like he promised for them seek the Kingdom first and these thing would be added. They were to have no fear of what to say, not needing to practice parroting words from the some bible, because few if any of the early Christian's had a written document to take with them, as books had yet too be invented.

Romans 12:6 Having gifts differing according to the grace that was given to us, if prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of our faith.

Acts 18:5 But when Silas and Timothy came down from Macedonia, Paul was compelled by the Spirit, testifying to the Jews that Jesus was the Christ.

continued:

Acts 18:25 This man had been instructed in the way of the Lord; and being fervent in spirit, he spoke and taught accurately the things concerning Jesus, although he knew only the baptism of John.

Acts 20:23 except that the Holy Spirit testifies in every city, saying that bonds and afflictions wait for me.

Acts 21:4 Having found disciples, we stayed there seven days. These said to Paul through the Spirit, that he should not go up to Jerusalem.

So they were to put faith in Christ and he would preach through them with various gifts giving them the best message to reach the person heart. The good news was not about an earthly Kingdom, but the Kingdom of the heavens, Christ as the King of that Kingdom, making him the good news, about Christ, and what he had done, and would do as King of that kingdom.

1 Corinthians 1:23 but we preach Christ crucified; a stumbling block to Jews, and foolishness to Greeks.

1 Corinthians 9:18 What then is my reward? That, when I preach the Good News, I may present the Good News of Christ without charge, so as not to abuse my authority in the Good News.

2 Corinthians 4:5 For we don't preach ourselves, but Christ Jesus as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus' sake.

2 Corinthians 11:4 For if he who comes preaches another Jesus, whom we did not preach, or if you receive a different spirit, which you did not receive, or a different "good news", which you did not accept, you put up with that well enough.

Galatians 1:16 to reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the Gentiles, I didn't immediately confer with flesh and blood.
Ephesians 3:8 To me, the very least of all saints, was this grace given, to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ.

*** it-1 pp. 986-987 Good News ***

GOOD NEWS

This refers to the good news of the Kingdom of God and of salvation by faith in Jesus Christ. It is called in the Bible “the good news of the kingdom”(Mt 4:23),“the good news of God”(Ro 15:16),“the good news about Jesus Christ”(Mr 1:1),“the good news of the undeserved kindness of God”(Ac 20:24),“the good news of peace”(Eph 6:15), and the “everlasting good news”(Re 14:6).
The Greek word translated “good news”(“gospel” in KJ and some other versions) is eu·ag·ge´li·on.“An evangelizer”(the English word being almost a transliteration of the Greek) is a preacher of the good news.—Ac 21:8; 2Ti 4:5.

Its Content. An idea of the content and scope of the good news can be gained from the above designations. It includes all the truths about which Jesus spoke and the disciples wrote. While men of old hoped in God and had faith through knowledge of Him, God’s purposes were first “made clearly evident through the manifestation of our Savior, Christ Jesus, who has abolished death but has shed light upon life and incorruption through the good news.”—2Ti 1:9, 10.

Centuries earlier God had declared the good news to Abraham, thereby indicating the means by which he purposed to provide the good news. He said:“By means of you all the nations will be blessed.”(Ga 3:8) Later, through the prophet Isaiah, Jehovah spoke of the preaching of the good news. Jesus Christ read from this prophecy in the synagogue at Nazareth, afterward saying:“Today this scripture that you just heard is fulfilled.”(Lu 4:16-21) Isaiah’s prophecy described the purpose and effect of the good news to be preached, particularly from the time of Messiah’s coming.—Isa 61:1-3.

Its Progress. At Jesus’ birth the angel announced to the shepherds:“Have no fear, for, look! I am declaring to you good news of a great joy that all the people will have.”(Lu 2:10) John the Baptizer prepared the way for Jesus’ preaching of the good news, saying to the Jews:“Repent, for the kingdom of the heavens has drawn near.”(Mt 3:1, 2) Jesus said of John’s preaching:“From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of the heavens is the goal toward which men press, and those pressing forward are seizing it.”—Mt 11:12.

During Jesus’ earthly ministry, he confined his preaching of the good news to the Jews and proselytes, saying:“I was not sent forth to any but to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.”(Mt 15:24) When sending out the 12 apostles, he commanded them:“Do not go off into the road of the nations, and do not enter into a Samaritan city; but, instead, go continually to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.”(Mt 10:5, 6) On one occasion he preached to a woman of the Samaritans, who were related to the Israelites, but this was not because he had gone into the city to preach. However, the response of the woman and others was so favorable that Jesus stayed with them for two days.—Joh 4:7-42.

After Jesus’ death and resurrection, he gave his disciples the command:“Go therefore and make disciples of people of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the holy spirit, teaching them to observe all the things I have commanded you.”(Mt 28:19, 20) He also told them that their preaching would reach to “the most distant part of the earth.”(Ac 1:8) But for about three and a half years afterward the holy spirit led the disciples to confine their preaching to Jews and Samaritans. Then Peter was sent by God to bring the good news to the household of the Roman army officer Cornelius.(Ac chaps 10, 11; 15:7) From that time on, the good news was declared to the greatest possible extent over the widest area.

Matt. 9:35:‘Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people." The good news was the Messiah was there and able to heal and forgive sins. They were to believe he was the promised one to be saved.

Matt. 9:35: " Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people." We see healing was part of the gospel of the kingdom proving it was among them, do Jehovah Witnesses heal anyone? Is there any record of anyone being supernaturally healed in their organization?

Luke 8:1: "Now it came to pass, afterward, that He went through every city and village, preaching and bringing the glad tidings of the kingdom of God. And the twelve were with Him,". Jesus had offered the kingdom to his brethren the Jews but they rejected his rule over them." This kingdom of God to a Jehovah Witnesses is interpreted as the paradise on earth. If you ask them what the gospel is that they bring, this is exactly what they will say. That one day in the future we will all live on earth in a perfect paradise on earth, and their magazines are often illustrated with hand drawn pictures of everyone enjoying the perfect earth.

But the Apostles did not continue to bring this kingdom message.IT WENT FURTHER 1 Cor. 15:1-4: "Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; 2: By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. 3: For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 4:And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: This is the Gospel of the kingdom that now saves. Its about forgiveness and restoration of ones soul.(1Cor.2:1-2; Gal.6:14)

The Jehovah witness that comes to your door does not have this gospel, it is altered or a better word to describe it, it’s intentionally ignored.

The Kingdom of God was preached but the message was CHRIST CRUCIFIED
Acts 4:10: " Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. 11:This is the stone which was rejected by you builders, which is become the chief cornerstone. 12: Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is no other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved."

Acts 8:5 Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria and preached Christ to them.

Acts 10:43 Through his name whoever believes in him will receive forgiveness of sins.”

Acts 10:36 Peter preached peace through Jesus Christ- he is LORD OF ALL .“

Acts 11:20 Barnabas and Paul Preached Jesus

Immediately after Paul’s conversion he "Preached Christ in the synagogues that he is the SON OF GOD
Acts 8:5 'Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria and preached Christ to them
Acts 10:36 Peter preached "peace through Jesus Christ

Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
Romans 8:9,“But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.”
“But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned”(1st Corinthians 2:14)

“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”—2nd Corinthians 5:17

Romans 1:16,“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
The gospel preached by the Apostles was about a savior , repentance , a new birth NOT PARADISE EARTH READ ACTS AND BEYOND .JW do not bring this gospel .
