Nobody in MAD disregards what Jesus said. However, we know how to "Rightly Divide" the Bible so we KNOW who He's speaking to, at any given time.
The majority of posters on TOL don't know how to "Rightly Divide" the written word of God. So, they're confused and ignorant regarding what's being said, and to who it's being said to.
Christ preached "The Kingdom Message" to the lost sheep of the House of Israel, as did Peter and the rest. When Paul came along he was made "The Apostle to the Gentiles", and he preached "The Grace Gospel" to the Gentiles. That's a simple truth. Most of you cannot seem to comprehend it.
Today, only "The Grace Gospel" is in effect for both the Jews and the Gentiles.
It's easy to say, that's for them, and not for us. But I say is it I lord, is it for me, and I go back to Jesus and the apostles to see their example and their teachings and see what they would do or say, and I apply that to myself, I also go to Gods people around me, I have even heard things from some on here and I know it was for me, to put me right! Once in particular someone spoke about forgiveness, and it moved me because of something wrong I'd just done, and I told the person how they had helped me, and I knew it was from God.
I know in my heart that God wants our heart cleansed, not just left dirty and just saying we believe with our mouths as many do. So I take everything myself first and foremost. I can't talk to others about the things of God, if I'm not living right before him myself.

the Gospel is inside the offer to Israel about the kingdom, which did come and was not a Judaistic theocracy. The term is actually 'reign.' Christ was about to be enthroned, and was, as found in Ps 2, at the resurrection, which also took place because of his redemptive sacrifice.
You are imposing 2P2P on the NT which is not there at all. It is actually a unified message, as found through all the letters etc.
To repeat, here are some reasons we know the redemptive Gospel of Christ was being preached already:
1, they knew Christ was the 'Lamb' of God. Hard to miss the significance of that title in that decade!
2, they knew very soon that Christ had and proved the authority to forgive sins
3, they knew that the 'cross' they were going to take up was the preaching of his cross in the well-known 'if any many would follow me, he must...' verses
4, they knew the dynamic of grace was in operation very early because the disreputable women episodes were about how 'those forgiven much love much' vs the Pharisee mentality.
5, they knew fairly soon that Christ referred to his upcoming event as an 'exodus'--that would be a new one, just as everything else in Judaism was being rendered new.
These are all simple truths that you GM cannot seem to comprehend.
There is no indication at all of a theocratic, Judaistic, temple- or Jerusalem-based kingdom. That is a misguided belief the masses grew up with and tried to impose on him, which he refused, as in Jn 5 and 12:34.
Those who do become missionaries of his Gospel (see the middle of Rom 10) do go on to 'reign in life' and to be 'more than conquerors' as Romans says, but very few from Israel believed.

Eph 2:8-9 (AKJV/PCE)
(2:8) For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: [it is] the gift of God: (2:9) Not of works, lest any man should boast.

Inter uses words and phrases that would signal him as being, quite the "Wordsmith." However, I think it only provides him a "smokescreen" to protect him from being exposed as a complete charlatan.
