Spotlight: The Gospels of the Bible (1st Century AD) – how much have these works influenced our culture??


These four renowned literary works (the Gospels of the Bible)—written in the 1st century AD—arguably have had the greatest impact on our life in the United States. These works changed forever human’s relationship with God, and almost every religion has taken inspiration from them.

The Gospels were originally oral accounts of Jesus’s life written down years after the Crucifixion. The Quran dedicates one of its four Islamic holy books to Jesus—Injil, translated as “gospel.”

The four Gospels taught us values that sustained over time:

Respect for the Life and Dignity of Each Individual; Trust in God; Honesty; Compassion; Forgiveness; Mercy; Community; Servant Leadership; Equality; Simplicity; Justice; Peace
