Christians, as I once did, boast about the Gospels
According to Matthew, According to Mark,
According to Luke and According to John.
However, if we think about it, there is not a single
Gospel according to Jesus himself.

According to the preface of the KJV New Open Bible Study
Edition, the word “Gospel” was added (see the
information below) to the original titles,
“According to John, According to Matthew,
According to Luke and According to Mark.”

At an early date this gospel was given the title Kata
Matthaion, “According to Matthew.” As this title
suggests, other gospel accounts were known at that
time (the word gospel was added later).4
The permission to call the “According to ”
writings the Gospel was not given by Jesus nor by
any other divine guidance. These writings;
Matthew, Luke, Mark and John were never
originally intended to be the Gospel. Therefore,
Mark 1: 1 can not be a true statement that his
writing is the gospel of Jesus.

It should be mentioned that Muslims must believe
in all Divine Scriptures in their original form, their
Prophets and make no distinction between them:
The Suhuf (Abraham); Torah (Moses); Psalms
(David); Gospel – or the Injeel (Jesus); and, the
Quran (Mohammed). It is clearly stated in the
Quran 3:3 that Allah sent down the Torah and the
Gospel. However, none of these scriptures remains
in its original form now, except the Quran, which
was sent for all mankind everywhere and for all

In addition to other reasons why the Quran was
sent to mankind, as mentioned in 18:4-5, it was
sent to warn the Christians of a terrible
punishment from God if they cease not in saying:
“Allah hath begotten a son. ”

Muslims sincerely believe that everything Jesus
(May the peace and blessing of God be upon him)
preached was from God; the Gospel (Injeel): The
“good news” and the guidance of God for the
Children of Israel. 10 There is no place mentioned in
the present four Gospels that Jesus wrote a single
word of his Gospel, nor is it mentioned that Jesus
instructed anyone to do so. What passes off as the
“Gospels” today are the works of third party
human hands.

The Quran 2:79 says:
“And woe to those who write the book with their
own hands and then say: “This is from Allah
(God).” To traffic with it for a miserable price!
So woe to them for what their hands do write,
and woe to themfor what they earn thereby!”
