Unity of the NT - Lemcio

According to E.E. Lemcio "Unifying Kerygma of the New Testament," JSNT 33 (1988): 3-17; idem, JSNT 38 (1990): 3-11, the kerygmatic core of the NT is six constant elements including:

(1) God who (2) sent or raised (3) Jesus and (4) calls for a response, i.e. receiving, repentance, faith, (5) towards God (6) which in turn brings various benefits such as salvation, redemption, reconciliation etc.
