Did Jesus Preach Paul’s Gospel? (Session VI)
Some have claimed that Jesus preached a gospel of the kingdom and Paul preached a gospel of justification by faith. John Piper teaches from the Gospel of Luke that Jesus and Paul preached the same message. If Christians interpret the deeds and words of Jesus faithfully, according and contained in the Gospels, then the true portrait will come to light and shine against any counter argument.
John Piper is founder and teacher of Desiring God and chancellor of Bethlehem College & Seminary. For 33 years, he served as senior pastor at Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He grew up in Greenville, South Carolina, and studied at Wheaton College, Fuller Theological Seminary (B.D.), and the University of Munich (D.theol.). For six years, he taught Biblical Studies at Bethel College in St. Paul, Minnesota, and in 1980 accepted the call to serve as pastor at Bethlehem. John is the author of more than 50 books and more than 30 years of his preaching and teaching is available free at desiringGod.org. John and his wife, Noel, have four sons, one daughter, and twelve grandchildren.
