THE FIRST GOSPEL: THE ARAMAIC GOSPEL BEFORE MATTHEW, MARK,
LUKE, AND JOHN -- by Robert E. Aldridge

Jesus and His disciples spoke Aramaic.  This book is about the first gospel, the Aramaic gospel written before the New Testament that served as a literary source for the gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke.  From 40 to 65 AD, it was the Church's only written account of Jesus.  Its influence was enormous.  But by 500 AD it was declared a forbidden writing and had disappeared.  Many early Christian writers spoke about it, but modern scholars have not investigated what they said.  It is a forgotten writing -- almost a lost book of the Bible.  What did it say?
