John Owens Definition of the Gospel

John Owen giving his definition of the Gospel.

1. The mystery of its doctrine, which is the object of faith;
2. The holiness of its precepts, which are the matter of our obedience; and,
3. The purity of its institutions of worship, which is the trial of our faith and obedience as to their profession.[1]
