    is it just His birth, life, death, resurection, and salvation preached in His name or other things also?

    The term used....according to the scriptures......expands the concept of the gospel to include all truth pertaining to the accomplished redemption of the covenant people. That is what is full about the gospel.....no more ,no less......the false ideas today of what is full are just error looking for a home.

    I'd leave the word "full" out and just say Gospel.

    There is only one, and you used the right Scripture to quote it.

    It is the death, burial and resurrection of our Lord, and some keep the part in your text "and that He was seen."

    That's the Gospel.

    So you would see it as being the Gospel that saves is what was quoted here, but that the Espistles, especially those of Paul, show us " How to act" once received Gospel message?

    The Gospel is as stated, and yes, it alones saves. We can see in Acts it was preached. Also, Jesus preached this in Matthew 24 and following. It is the power of God unto salvation, Romans 1:16. It and it alone.

    The Epistles, yes, those are for Christian living and doctrine, but they are not the Gospel. Although one can find Gospel hope in them, such as God awaiting those He did Sovereignly elect to come to repentance, 2 Peter 3:9.

    Also, look closely in Matthew 26, and Jesus alludes to His coming death, burial and resurrection, or, the Gospel.

    Jesus promised the Apostles special revelation,that they[the apostles] would be guided into .......ALL TRUTH.......Carefully read JN.14,15,16,17....here are some highlights.....

    Jesus is defining the all things.....

    This was only true of the Apostles....and that as foundational eph2:20
    When the Apostles were done....scripture was done......we have all we need for life and Godliness.....with word and Spirit.
    Jesus is the FULL Final Revelation of God and His accomplished work...
    He left nothing out.

    Those who desire more than what is given for our growth and protection sin, in that they are not content with the full final revelation.of Jesus and His redemptive work.
    Various charasmaniacs...cults, and sundry false teachers look for something"new"...or "fresh"...as If the Holy Spirit has not given us enough truth ......going outside the scripture {joseph smith,and all cults] is like going outside the ark just before God shut the door.
    ._____ The Holy Scripture is the only sufficient, certain, and infallible rule of all saving knowledge, faith, and obedience, although the light of nature, and the works of creation and providence do so far manifest the goodness, wisdom, and power of God, as to leave men inexcusable; yet are they not sufficient to give that knowledge of God and his will which is necessary unto salvation. Therefore it pleased the Lord at sundry times and in divers manners to reveal himself, and to declare that his will unto his church; and afterward for the better preserving and propagating of the truth, and for the more sure establishment and comfort of the church against the corruption of the flesh, and the malice of Satan, and of the world, to commit the same wholly unto writing; which maketh the Holy Scriptures to be most necessary, those former ways of God's revealing his will unto his people being now ceased.
    ( 2 Timothy 3:15-17; Isaiah 8:20; Luke 16:29, 31; Ephesians 2:20; Romans 1:19-21; Romans 2:14,15; Psalms 19:1-3; Hebrews 1:1; Proverbs 22:19-21; Romans 15:4; 2 Peter 1:19,20 )

    You hit the nail on the head with that which I bolded. I do not think that salvation is part of the gospel, but is the end result in believing in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Rom. 1:16 as Bro. P4T used, the gospel is God's power unto salvation. So, I do not think that salvation is a part of the Gospel, but the consummation of it.
