People must hear the gospel…

This text teaches powerfully, then, that people must hear the gospel of the death and resurrection of Christ in order to be saved, and that the Holy Spirit was sent precisely to empower this very proclamation in the name of Jesus, that people in all the nations might be saved. The notion that the Spirit works independently of knowledge of Christ and the gospel is directly refuted by Jesus’ teaching in this text alone.
