The Gospel is good news about a Jew named Jesus who lived in the Middle East 2000 years ago. His mum was the virgin Mary and he told people about sin and grace, later he was crucified for claiming he was God. But then he rose from the dead and promised he’d return one day to judge the living and the dead.

If you’d like a more detailed but still easy to read, description of Jesus, then Jesus: A Very Short Introduction by Richard Bauckham and published by the Oxford University Press is a great place to start.
