  1. Gospel, Gospels, evangelnoun

    the four books in the New Testament (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John) that tell the story of Christ's life and teachings

The Nuttall Encyclopedia

  1. Gospels

    the name by which the four accounts in the New Testament of the character, life, and teaching of Christ are designated; have been known since as early as the 3rd century, of which the first three are called "Synoptic," because they are summaries of the chief events, and go over the same ground in the history, while the author of the fourth gospel follows lines of his own; the former aim mainly at mere narrative, while the object of the latter is dogmatic, as well as probably to supply deficiencies in the former; moreover, the interest of John's account centres in the person of Christ and that of the others in His gospel; the writers were severally represented as attended, Matthew by a man, Mark by a lion, Luke by an ox, and John by an eagle.

  2. Justice Antonin Scalia:

    You're looking at me as though I'm weird, my God! Are you so out of touch with most of America, most of which believes in the Devil? I mean, Jesus Christ believed in the Devil! It's in the Gospels! You travel in circles that are so, so removed from mainstream America that you are appalled that anybody would believe in the Devil! Most of mankind has believed in the Devil, for all of history. Many more intelligent people than you or me have believed in the Devil.

  3. Charles de Gaulle:

    The perfection preached in the Gospels never yet built up an empire. Every man of action has a strong dose of egotism, pride, hardness, and cunning. But all those things will be forgiven him, indeed, they will be regarded as high qualities, if he can make of them the means to achieve great ends.

  4. RJ Intindola – (Gandolfo):

    Those having no conscious of guilt after the imposition of cruelty and brutality, have no claim to the biblical gospels as set forth in Christianity; for they ordain the necessity, to cloth, feed, and shelter the despondent.

    Clearly he had his own strange way of judging things. I suspect he acquired it from the gospels.
