A gospel (from Old English, gōd spell cf Germanic gut + speil "good news") is a writing that describes the life, ministry, death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus. The word is primarily used to refer to the four canonical gospels: the Gospel of Matthew, Gospel of Mark, Gospel of Luke and Gospel of John although it is also used for non-canonical writings such as the Gospel of Thomas. The term "gospel" refers also to the message itself of the four gospels or of the whole New Testament. See the separate article here.
