Where in the Bible do you find the clearest explanation of the gospel? In one of the four gospel books—Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John? Perhaps in Paul’s letter to the Romans? Somewhere else in the New Testament?
The answer may surprise you.
No passage gives a clearer explanation of Christ’s atoning work for sinners than Isaiah 53. It’s truly the first gospel (written 700 years before Christ came to earth) and, because of its rich detail, the most astonishing prophecy in the Old Testament. Deepen your thankfulness for Christ’s saving work—discover the richness of Isaiah 53 in John MacArthur’s landmark study The Gospel According to God.
