What is the difference between «gospel» and «Gospels»?
One starts with a lower-case letter and the other with a capital letter, right?
And do they mean the same thing? No, that’s why they’re written differently.
When Jesus told His disciples to preach the gospel, He wanted them to give the good news that Jesus had come to save them. That’s why «gospel» in lower case means «good news.»
So . . . what’s the meaning of «Gospels»? When we write it with a capital letter, we refer to the books of the Bible that tell the story of Jesus and were written by Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.
As you can see, it’s very important to learn how to write words, because it helps us know their meaning. It’s not the same to write «god» with a lower case first letter than to write «God» with an uppercase first letter.
The true God, the Creator of heaven and earth, is always written with a capital letter to differentiate Him from the false gods that do not exist.
If you want to know Jesus’s life well, read the four Gospels. Each one tells something the other one doesn’t. So, if you want to become better acquainted with the story of Jesus, you need to read all the Gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.
Do you know which Gospel tells Jesus’s story in chronological order, that is, just as it happened from beginning to end? Read today’s verse and write it in your Prayer Journal.
