Gnosticism: The Gnostic Gospels of Thomas and Eve.
The four gospels are only four out of dozens that were whittled down by the formation of the church canon, and by censorship and physical destruction of rival texts.
Two of the Gnostic gospels - the Gospel of Thomas and the Gospel of Eve - have a clearly pantheistic tone in places.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Gospel of Saint John
Although in many of the ancient copies this Gospel was, on account of the Apostolic dignity of the author inserted immediately after or even before the Gospel of St. Matthew, the position it occupies today was from the beginning the most usual and the most approved.
As regards its contents, the Gospel of St. John is a narrative of the life of Jesus from His baptism to His Resurrection and His manifestation of Himself in the midst of His disciples.
The intention of the Evangelist in composing the Gospel is expressed in the words which we have already quoted: "But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God" (xx, 31).

 Sharing the Gospel with Muslims: Eve - Satan's Three Great Temptations
Eve (named Hawwa in Islam) is mentioned simply as the wife of Adam (Surah 2:35, 7:19), and no mention is made of the fact that Satan first tempted her before she persuaded her husband to eat of the forbidden fruit.
Firstly, Eve saw that the tree was "good for food." This meant it was obviously tasty, in good shape and would benefit her physical body if she ate of it.
The "lust of the flesh" made Eve see that the tree was good for food, the "lust of the eye" that it was attractive to the sight, and "the pride of life" that it was to be desired to make one wise.

Gospel of St. Peter - Attributed erroneously to St. Peter, it borrows heavily from the 4 Gospels, and concerns itself chiefly with Christ's Passion, Burial, and Resurrection.
Gospel of Nicodemus - Relates the story of the Passion and Resurrection, along with an account of the intervening time during which Christ descended into hell, and Satan's fear and outrage upon hearing of Christ's crucifixion since he knew that that meant Christ was going to pay him a visit.

 Gospel   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-15)
The word GOSPEL is from the Anglo-Saxon, god-speil, "God-story," a translation of the Greek euangelion, "good news." The Gospel is the good news of the message of salvation offered by God to all who believe in His Son, Jesus, as Lord and Savior.
Eve was well aware of God's command regarding the tree of knowledge and that they were not to partake of its fruit.
In the case of Adam and Eve, their spiritual beings had become corrupt and were separated from God, the very source of life.

 Gospel and Gospels
Thus, "the Gospel according to Matthew" is equivalent to the Gospel history in the form in which St. Matthew put it in writing; "the Gospel according to Mark" designates the same Gospel history in another form, viz, in that in which St. Mark presented it in writing, etc. (cf.
From the outset, the four Gospels, the sacred character of which was thus recognized very early, differed in several respects from the numerous uncanonical Gospels which circulated during the first centuries of the Church.
In this way, as it seems, was obtained the present general order of the Gospels in which we find, at the beginning, an Apostle as author; at the end, the other Apostle; between the two, those who have to derive their authority from Apostles.

It begins with the prophecy concerning the `seed of the woman' (Genesis 3:15), and the promise concerning Abraham, in whom all the nations should be blessed (Genesis 12:3; 15:5) and is also indicated in Acts 10:43 and in the argument in Ro 4.
In another it is called "the gospel of the grace of God" (Acts 20:24); in another "the gospel of peace" (Ephesians 6:15); in another "the gospel of your salvation" (Ephesians 1:13); and in yet another "the glorious gospel" (2 Corinthians 4:4 the King James Version).
"The gospel is the gratuitous promise of the remission of sins for Christ's sake." To hold tenaciously that in this gospel we have a supernatural revelation is in perfect consistency with the spirit of scientific inquiry.

 An inquiry into the substance of the Gospel
He says, “The objects of justifying faith, proper and specific…are the promises of the gospel, which cannot be received except by trust because they are proposed not only as true, but also as good.”[3] Men see the goodness of the propositions given to them and trust they are true and good.
All that is comprehended under the name “Gospel,” because it declares to us how God perfected and accomplished everything which was required for the salvation of men, and it was all done in the Person of His Son.”[16] This is a wonderful summation of what the point of this paper is all about.
No doubt she could articulate the foundational truths of the Gospel, but to say that the theology found in TULIP is the most basic of the Gospel message is to confound the simplicity of the message.

St. Luke's Gospel contrasts the splendor of the angels' announcement to the shepherds with the lowliness of Jesus in the manger.
On that first Christmas eve, the Gospel relates that the glory of the Lord shone upon the shepherds, and, struck with fear, they heard the multitude of the heavenly hosts singing.
Luke's Gospel notes that when the shepherds came to the manger at Bethlehem, they found not swaddling clothes, but "Mary and Joseph and the infant lying in a manger." The sign of the swaddling clothes had been replaced by Mary and Joseph.

 [No title]
The coptic gospel of Thomas presupposes a kind of thought system that its hearers or readers where familiar with - and a lot of sayings and symbols in Thomas point towards a proto- gnostic or gnostic milieau.
Not the least I learnt that a gnostic sect called the Nasseans (from the hebrew root NAAS= snake) used the Gospel of Thomas as part of their sacred scripture in the 3rd century.
Thomas 77 = A comparable parallel to this saying is found in the gnostic gospel of Eve from which Epihanius quotes; "In all things I am scattered, nad from whereever you wish you collect me".

 Gospel
This means that Jesus Christ was in existence even before Adam and Eve sinned, because He offered His life to be slain for the penalty of sin from the foundation, or beginning, of the world.
This same Gospel was preached unto Abraham, and pointed forward to when Jesus would come down from heaven and allow Himself to be our substitute for sin, taking the death penalty upon Himself to provide us with the only way of escape from Satan's bondage.
The corrupt church and the majority of people rejected Christ and were determined to prevent this Gospel from spreading to others by using tactics such as fear, intimidation, and even death to those who proclaimed this Gospel truth.

Mary never wrote a book after her Pondering, but John, the writer of the gospel set it down for us and ever since then it seems the Church has been busy trying to return that enfleshed Logos back into an "ology", a philosophical system where meaning will hang on an umlaut.
