I’ve never experienced much of a Jesus vs. Paul thing myself. I never felt much conflict between them when I read the New Testament. I didn’t have a clue at first what the English word “gospel” meant at first.

It’s a particular sort of good news. It’s the news of a conquering king who has defeated the enemies and brought peace and salvation to his people. In the case of Jesus, it turns out that Israel’s true king (messiah) is also the salvation of the nations.
