Resolved

The Apostle Paul preached a novel Gospel of Grace which was not known prior to the revelation given to him by Jesus Christ and which is distinct from the Gospel of the Kingdom preached during Christ's Earthly ministry and by the disciples after His ascension into heaven.

Definitions

Novel - New; not previously known.

Distinct - Separate; apart from; unique.

Gospel of Grace - The good news for all men in this dispensation of Grace whereby one may become part of the Body of Christ, where there is no distinction between Israel and Gentiles, through the faith of Christ, His vicarious death, and His shed blood upon the cross of Calvary, and apart from any works of one's own self, where belief and trust in Christ's finished work of redemption and the power of His atoning blood which has covered all sins once-and-for-all is the only requirement for a salvation which is secured and certain upon belief by the seal of the Holy Spirit.

Gospel of the Kingdom - The good news for Israel in the dispensation of the Kingdom whereby one may attain a position in an Earthly kingdom in the New Jerusalem through one's faith shown forth by his works, beginning with repentance of unbelief in Christ, water baptism for the remission of sin, and perseverance unto the end, thus salvation is an uncertain future event.
