A gospel (a contraction of Old English god spel meaning "good news/glad tidings", comparable to Greek εὐαγγέλιον, evangelion) is a written account of the career and teachings of Jesus.

The term originally meant the Christian message itself, but in the second century, it came to be used for the books in which the message was set out. Gospels are a genre of Early Christian literature.

The Fourth-Gospel Problem. Originally appeared in The Theosophical Review 28 (July ): by G. Mead. The whole tradition of the apostle John's residence at Ephesus is based on the assertions of Irenaeus, who thus endeavours to establish his claim that he (Irenaeus) was in direct contact with an apostolic tradition.
