The Four Gospels
This reference to multiples gospels is as much soteriological as eschatological but I would ask those who have an original Scofield Reference Bible to take a look at page 1343. The reprint, which I own, is the same as the original. This certainly applies to this thread concerning the Millennium.
Cyrus Scofield, the American counterpart to the British John Darby, was the main proponent of Dispensationalism in America. Many thousands of Scofield Bibles have been sold and Scofield's commentary is accepted by many as extremely authoritative in the interpretation the Scripture and end-times scenarios.
On page 1343 of the Scofield Bible, Scofield lists the four Gospels presented in the New Testament, and they are as follows (paraphrased):
1. The gospel of the kingdom. This is the preaching of the good news that God had promised to set up an earthly kingdom. This kingdom was to be political, spiritual, universal, and of the Israelites; and was to be ruled over by Jesus as the greater Son of David. It was to last one thousand years, or the Millennial reign of Christ.
2. The gospel of the grace of God. This is the good news that Jesus died, was buried, and that he rose again. Scofield says that this gospel saved "wholly apart from forms and ordinances," with the implication being that this is not true of some of the other three gospels.
3. The everlasting gospel. This will be preached by Jews after the church is raptured, but before the beginning of the millennium. Scofield says of this gospel that it is neither the gospel of the kingdom, nor of grace. It is the good news that those who were saved during the "great tribulation" will enter the millennial kingdom.
4. The gospel which Paul calls "my gospel." This is the gospel of grace, and it differs from that which was preached by Christ and the apostles! Paul has personally been given new insight into the "mystery" of the church and this is included in "Paul's gospel." (Hyper Dispensationals claim that Paul was the first member of the Body of Christ - my addition.)
According to this theory of four gospels, the first of them was preached by John the Baptist and by our Lord, until the kingdom that offered to the Jews was rejected by the Jews and thus it had to be postponed while the church age was ushered in by the death of our Lord on the cross.
After His plan to establish a kingdom was frustrated by the Jews, our Lord changed to the second form of the gospel and began to preach that he would be crucified, buried, and resurrected. This gospel was preached by our Lord during the remainder of his ministry and then by the apostles until the time of Paul.
A fuller revelation concerning the church, which neither Jesus nor any of the other apostles had been permitted to disclose, Paul began to preach the fourth of the distinctive gospels held by Dispensationalism. In other words, what Paul termed "my gospel" was quite different than that preached by our Lord. This is the same gospel, according to this dispensational theory, that we are supposed to preach today. Note, we are not to preach the gospel preached by our Lord, but that which was preached by Paul. What Christ preached was for the Jews.
Number three of these gospels will not be preached until after the present "church age" is ended and the church has been taken out of the world. Then, after the "everlasting gospel" has been preached and the millennium established, Jewish converts will begin to preach the "gospel of the kingdom" again. Note that this gospel of the kingdom is the first gospel preached by our Lord, which gospel was rejected and then postponed. Whereas Jesus failed in His presentation of it, the Jewish nation will succeed.
In view of the fact that this theory holds to four distinct gospels, and in view of the fact that each one is said to bring about salvation, it is difficult to sweep under a rug that Dispensationalism offers four distinct plans of salvation.
