The "Apostle" Paul described the gospel that he taught in at least nine ways:
1--Acts 20;24 (this one is a kind of cheating--it isn't in Paul's words) the gospel of the grace of God
2--Rom 1:1, the gospel of God
3--Rom 2:16, my gospel___"in that day when according to my gospel, God judges the secrets of men by Christ Jesus."
4--Rom 15:19, the gospel of Christ
5--Galat 2:7, the gospel to the uncircumcised
6--Ephes 1:13, the gospel of your salvation
7--Ephes 6:15, the gospel of peace
8--2 Thes 1:8, the gospel of our Lord Jesus
9--1 Tim 1:11, the glorious gospel of the blessed God
Jesus preached the gospel of the kingdom. Matt 4:23, 9:35, Mark 1:14, Luke 16:16
Jesus also said, "And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached throughout the whole world, as a testimony to all nations; and then the end will come.", Matt 24:14
______If you do not believe that the kingdom of God has arrived you might want to investigate further.
Paul wrote in Gal 1:6-10, about another gospel. "As we have said before, so now I say again, If any one is preaching a gospel contrary to that which you received, let him be accursed." Of course the gospel they got was from Paul.
Paul either did not know or or else ignored what Jesus said, "But I say to you, do not swear at all......Let what you say be simply 'Yes' or 'No'; anything more than this comes from evil" Matt 5:34-37
