2 Sa 1-2; 1 Jn 1; Psalm 38
The message of the gospel is announced once more in 1 John 1. What is the Gospel? What is the Good News? OF course we have many formulae for this – but John is not announcing a formula. He proclaims Christ. We declare to you . . .the Life we have seen and heard and touched. It is in union with Christ, the Light, that we know light.
As St Paul puts it – we are baptised into his death, that we might be raised.
He is our life – He is the Good News
