A gospel is an account of the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. There are only four accepted gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Although the four of these books emphasize different parts of Jesus' life, together we they tell a rich history of when God came to earth and lived among us, ultimately dying for our sins. 

The word gospel is derived from the Old English god-spell which means "good news" or "glad tidings." The word comes from the Greek word euangelion which means "good news."[1]
