What is the "Good News?" What is its purpose?


I have seen the term used among people on religious forums. I wonder if there is a unified understanding of the term.

    I agree that the GOSPEL is the Good News! The Bible tells us that Jesus' birth, sinless life, death and resurrection are the good news. John 20:31 & 1 John 5:13 Bible written to give Good News and assure eternal life for believers

    I am afraid that only those who think God speaks through them and tells them what to think --- would think there is only one understanding and that would be theirs that they claim it is God's. Are they really anointed prophets?

    KC: You said IT! Acts 20:24 "...& the ministry, which I have recv'd of the Lord Jesus (HS), to testify "the gospel" of the "GRACE" of GOD!" GRACE is the Good News preached in "Gospel of Christ" (AFTER THE CROSS)!"

    Jn 1:14 "...full of GRACE&

    If your Hub were here, I would select it and give 5 stars. His coming was prophesied in the OT and we were told why. If Jesus' had come with no forgiveness of sin and eternal life, what would be the Good News?
