The gospel of jesus book
The Gospel of Jesus: According to the Jesus Seminar by Robert W. FunkI read with considerable interest this version of “The Gospel of Jesus”. If this gospel is anywhere close to correct, then much doubt is cast on most of the principal doctrines of mainstream Christianity.
This gospel does not at all imply that Jesus came as the Savior of humanity, that he came as God in the flesh, or any such theology at all. Of course, orthodox Christians will surely vilify this gospel as gravely erroneous with respect to what it excludes.
One thing to remember about this gospel is that it is not merely a composition of one scholar’s ideas and outlook, but is comprised of the summary views of numerous “Bible” scholars – mostly people who devote their lives to studying and teaching about the “Bible”, including the various “gospels” that have been created to describe and discuss the life of the great spiritual teacher, Jesus of Nazareth.
I am enough impressed by the work that Robert Funk and his fellow scholars have produced in creating this “The Gospel of Jesus: According to the Jesus Seminar” that I plan to buy a previous work of theirs, “The Five Gospels”. This seminar has contributions from over 200 scholars, as well as 75 of whom have signed on to the two major reports completed by the seminar. This, by no means, confers any infallibility on this work, but it does offer reason for granting considerable weight of credibility to the projects produced by the seminar.
Some serious rethinking might be in order concerning the past two thousand years of Christian teachings. Projects like Robert Funk’s offer serious grounding for approaching Christianity in a greatly different fashion from what mainstream Christianity has been committed to portraying.

The Gospel of Christ and Doctrine of Christ
The first four books of the New Testament, the Gospels, show us the life and teachings of Jesus Christ while providing evidence that He is the Son of God and the Messiah. These books catalog the life and teachings of Jesus Christ, the savior to whom all of the Old Testament prophecies pointed. Just as importantly, the Gospel also takes great care to point out how Christ fulfilled Old Testament prophecies. Luke-Acts are just one of four different books that recount the Gospel of Jesus. No other part of the Bible uses four different books to tell the same story.
