Stephen C. Carlson at Hypotyposeis has a post in which he mentions a website with an interesting definition of “The Gospels.”
The website is called the Jargon Database. The purpose of this site is to define words that have become technical jargon. Under the Religious – General category, Jargon Database has the following definition for “The Gospels”:
The first five books of the bible, this term is originally of Greek origin for Good News.
The last time I looked, the first five books of the Bible are Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy. And they were called The Pentateuch, not The Gospels.
Talk about Biblical illiteracy.
Stephen C. Carlson was right when he wrote: “Don’t Believe Everything You Read on the Web.”
