(a typo there - it's 9:35, not 9:25)

Rightly so, it's the good news of the God's reign - yes, the God's
reign coming in the person of the Messiah Himself.

If my memory holds correctly, Iver once mentioned a Danish reading
here as 'good news about me'.

Theologically speaking, I recall a quotable 'The Messiah as the
Messenger, the Message and the Medium of the Gospel'.
