Where is the primary, original Gospel that was given to Jesus?
Answer: The reader should read the introductory text to Theme 1: ”Scripture and the Word of God” at the left side on top of this homepage. In addition, the reader should look at questions and answers 60 and 93 on page 7 and 10, respectively, in this homepage. All this reveals: According to Christian faith and knowledge, at no time was Jesus given or sent a book, the injīl, i.e. the Gospel. This idea is oriented towards the idea of the Qur’an as a book sent down by God to Mohammad. Rather, according to Christian knowledge and faith in Jesus Himself – His life as well as His teaching – is the good news (Greek: euangélion, English: good news) in the first and intrinsic sense. The four Gospels of the New Testament carry the title Gospel because they authentically convey in words the good news which is Jesus life and teaching.
