The Gospel of Jesus Christ and The Gospel of Paul: Are They The Same?

 I am part of a mens' Bible Study Accountability Group. We go deep in diligently seeking after God. Lately we have been studying the Gospel of the Kingdom of God as taught by Jesus Christ.  I am under the belief that the Jesus Gospel of the Kingdom of God and Pauls Gospel of Grace is not the same. I recently came across a study entitled The Apostle Paul and His Gospel.  I quote from this study " The Apostle Paul's commission was to take the "Gospel of Grace" to the Gentiles or the nations who were never under the law of commandments. Romans 2:14." Clearly the Gospel of Grace  is not the same as the Gospel of the Kingdom of God. Jesus said seek ye first the Kingdom of God and all your needs would be supplied. Does not all needs equally apply to Grace as well as salvation? If Jesus taught the first principle was seeking the Kingdom of God and Paul that Grace was priority then we have a problem in agreement.  #Blackpreachingnetwork

This is said of Paul: "And he went into the synagogue, and spake boldly for the space of three months, disputing and persuading the things concerning the kingdom of God" [Acts 19:8]. And "there came many to him into his lodging; to whom he expounded and testified the kingdom of God, persuading them concerning Jesus, both out of the law of Moses, and out of the prophets, from morning till evening" [Acts 28:23]. 

It is too simplistic to say "Paul preached grace," as if it was something distinct gospel from that of the Kingdom of God. Paul evidently thought preaching about the grace of God was akin to preaching about the Kingdom. He told the Ephesian elders [as recorded in Acts 20:24,25]: "But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of GodAnd now, behold, I know that ye all, among whom I have gone preaching the kingdom of God, shall see my face no more."
