Luke testifies that when Jesus was at Capernaum he said that God had sent him to “preach the kingdom.” Mark referring to the same thing, says, that Jesus “preached the word unto them.” Now Paul says to Timothy, “I charge you before God preach the word.”
Query—Did Paul charge Timothy to preach the same thing as Jesus; if he did, why do not “evangelists” and others who profess that the New Testament is their rule of practice, go and do likewise? Why do they not preach the gospel of the kingdom—the Word of the Kingdom—even as they? Do they think they can improve upon the practice of the Great Teacher and his Disciples?
