Why isn't there a Gospel of Jesus?

I was watching this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Up-8l5dIeso&feature=channel_page and it had me thinking.

  • In the video, the guys says something to the extent of, "Our very souls depend on the word of this man, but there is only hearsay..."

    This is so true.

  • I have heard that their actually are scriptures written by Jesus, but they didn't mesh with what the people in charge of the bible wanted to say, so they were left out and have been in the Vatican since. Do I know for sure? No. But it would make sense, wouldn't it?

  • Jesus IS the WORD , Matthew , Mark , Luke and John are the gospels about Jesus. He is the gospel and the speaker of many things spoke in the 4 gospels.

  • "Jesus IS the WORD , Matthew , Mark , Luke and John are the gospels about Jesus. He is the gospel and the speaker of many things spoke in the 4 gospels."

    But it's very possible that He also recorded his ministry...in fact, it would be odd if He hadn't.

    Unfortunately the Bible as we know it is not only the work of God but also of a committee of men. They were able to pick and choose what went in. Can we truly be certain they have passed on His word in its entirety?

  • Obviously he didn't consider the written word to be important to the work he was doing. And perhaps the bible is not significant for that very reason.
