    There are not 2 gospels, Read 1st Cor. 12: 13 By 1 spirit are we ALL baptised into the body of Christ Weather we be JEW OR Gentile,Bond or Free etc .All the lords original disciples were Jews but they had to be bornagain, There is no other way but to birth Christ in our lives via the seed of the sower, The words of God. It wd make the lord a hypocrite if he had 1 Gospel for the Jews and 1 for the Gentiles. There is only 1 bridegroom thus the Kingdom of God and the Kingdom of heaven are 1 and the same . Jesus uses Kingdom of God in some of his parable but he uses kingdom of heaven in the very same parables so kingdom of God has to be the same as the kingdom of heaven. Unless ya receive the Kingdom of GOD as a lil Child you will in NO wise enter there in. That heavenly birth via his seed etc. As Peter says being bornagain of an INCORRUPTIBLE SEED ETC. Christ is gonna be multiplied as the stars of heaven via his precious seed etc but they are all 1 Spirit .Natural Israel became as the sands of the seas but they were all 1 bloodline. The Israel of God are gonna be as the stars of heaven but they are 1 God in many Sons. As natural Israel were. I will Multiply thy seed as the stars of heaven but they are 1 ppl , 1 Nation 1 ppl .But they are spirits as JESUS said that which is born of the Spirit tis spirit. Which are the Children of Promise. The H.g. We are flesh and blood never the less Jesus said the kIngdom of God is gonna be with in you . In our flesh and blood glorified bodies . In the twinkling of an eye we are gona be changed . This corruption is gonna put on incorruption in that day.

    It's Scripturally correct to say that there's only one gospel for this dispensation of grace. However, when Jesus walked the earth 2000 years ago, He was under the Law of Moses, and He preached and taught a kingdom gospel to the Jews, and so did His apostles. He did not teach the Samaritans or Gentiles, and neither did His apostles.

    Paul writes in Galatians 1:6-7, "I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ."

    Later in Galatians 2:7-9, Paul adds, "But contrariwise, when they saw that the gospel of the uncircumcision was committed unto me, as the gospel of the circumcision was unto Peter; (For he that wrought effectually in Peter to the apostleship of the circumcision, the same was mighty in me toward the Gentiles:) And when James, Cephas, and John, who seemed to be pillars, perceived the grace that was given unto me, they gave to me and Barnabas the right hands of fellowship; that we should go unto the heathen, and they unto the circumcision."

    Clearly there was one gospel for the circumcision and another for the uncircumcision. What happened in the Galatian church is the members had mixed the two gospels because Messianic Jews from the church at Jerusalem had taught them the kingdom gospel and insisted that be circumcised and obey the Law of Moses to be saved. It was agreed upon by those in authority, i.e., Peter, James, and John, that Paul was the apostle to the Gentiles, and that Peter was the apostle to the Jews.

    Scripture clearly teaches that there were two gospels. Scripture must be studied, not just read, and it must be rightly divided to understand the truth of God's written word. Paul says the Scripture is given for reproof and correction. What I find most troublesome these days is that far too many self-identified Christians refuse to accept correction once they have been corrected.
