Him We Proclaim. At the start of Colossians 1:28 Paul states Him we proclaim. Paulis outlining the only way to give the gospel is Christ proclaimed. Our testimonies, our declarations to non-believers that we go to church, our apologetics, none of it is the gospel, only ever Christ proclaimed. Nathan Tarrant also explains the danger of thinking speaking of God the Father to others is giving the gospel, as he shows us that it is not, it is only ever Christ proclaimed.
