Overview of the Gospels in (and
excluded from) the official canon
Gospels covered in this section include both the 4 Gospels which form part of the New
Testament canon, and a number of other gospels that which were widely accepted
by the early Christian movement but which were never accepted into the the
official canon of Christian
Scriptures (New Testament).
* These gospels are found in the Bible. The four are listed above in their
probable chronological order. The Gospel of Q does not appear intact in the
Bible; Matthew and Luke both contain passages from Q.
