"Gospel" initially referred to oral proclamation concerning Jesus Christ, but was later used to refer to four written accounts of the life of Jesus. How did this happen? Graham Stanton uses new evidence and fresh perspectives to tackle this controversial question. He also examines the earliest criticisms of Jesus, and early Christian addiction to the codex (book) format in place of the ubiquitous roll.
"Stanton has presented a brilliant book that hopefully very soon will find its way not only into university libraries but also into the bookcases of many exegetes." Journal of Biblical Literature, Tobias Nicklas, University of Regensburg, Germany
