"he took Peter and John and James" - Christ Jesus and the Gospels

Around Tokyo

Christ Jesus and the Gospels

Christ Jesus did not order His disciples to write down His words and His actions for future generations.

Christ Jesus sometimes referred to the Old Testament, which means that He might think about a possibility that His words and deeds would be someday compiled in another Testament.  But He never made any efforts to keep His life in record.

It is in clear distinction from the case of Islam where the Koran has played an essential role.

So, it is enigma about Christianity: How Christ Jesus regards the New Testament, and especially the Gospels.

So, we have to judge whether or not the Gospels were written through guidance of the spirit of Christ Jesus.

Luk 9:28 And it came to pass about an eight days after these sayings, he took Peter and John and James, and went up into a mountain to pray.
Luk 9:29 And as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered, and his raiment was white and glistering.
