gospel means good news.

I am going to suggest that people everywhere may be using a word in greek as a subject, that normally should be descriptive of the subject under discussion, not as another way of stating the subject.

If I tell you my wife just had a baby, that is gospel.

If I tell you my father just had his cancer miraculously cured, that is gospel.

If I tell you that Jesus Christ died on the cross for your sins and rose again, that is gospel.

If I tell you that simply by believing in him for eternal life, he grants it to you, that also is gospel.

If I tell you Christ is coming again, that is gospel

There are many other things that are gospel and even described as gospel in the New Testament but only ONE thing grants eternal life and that is Belief in Jesus Christ for Eternal life. That is gospel or good news!

The New Testament is "gospel" because it is good news, however thankfully it is not what we must believe to have eternal life. Jesus Christ was clear on that in John thankfully.
