The difference between the good news concerning the Kingdom and the good news concerning the Grace of God may be briefly stated thus:In the Gospel of the Kingdom the Lord Jesus is proclaimed as the seed of David, the Man raised up and Anointed by God to reign over the people of Israel and over the Gentiles (Rom. xv. 12). In the Gospel of the Grace of God, the Lord Jesus is declared to be the Son of God, the Man in whom God came down to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself, that sinful men might be justified and sanctified, made fit for the presence of the glory of God (Col. i. 12). The former was preached to the Jews and in association with Jerusalem. The latter is the present testimony of God among the Gentiles while Jerusalem is trodden down of the Gentiles.

I am totally lost in this theology. I need more input to understand what is being said here.
Are you inferring that there are several reasons for the Christ Jesus' appearing to this terrestrial creation and that the Apostles taught two distinct gospels?

But I suggest reading the book of Galatians as it covers some aspects of these differences.
Two different groups, the Jews and Gentiles, were given a different message due to their differing backgrounds. But from the same Source.
