The Catholic Gospel

Question: What is really the Catholic gospel?

Answer: The word Gospel usually designates a written record of Christ’s words and deeds. It is very likely derived from the Anglo-Saxon god (good) and spell (to tell), and is generally treated as the exact equivalent of the Greek euaggelion (eu well, aggello, I bear a message), and the Latin Evangelium, which has passed into French, German, Italian, and other modern languages. The Greek euaggelion originally signified the “reward of good tidings” given to the messenger, and subsequently “good tidings”.

  1. Is this part of a series?

  2. Um, I did not intend it to, but I can be sure to find more information from the RCC on what they say on the gospel/gospels if you would like placing it in question form like I have if you would like.

  3. Just wondering… since I’m a new reader and was once this close to converting to RCC.

  4. I’ll look up a few more interesting things later this week for you.
