TABLE OF CONTENTS

This Third Millennium Gospel of Jesus Christ is a consolidation of the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John with the addition of a few verses from the unofficial Gospel of Phillip and the Gospel of Thomas with regards to Mary Magdalene.
Matthew and Luke both incorporate the Gospel of Mark. I have eliminated the repetitions and when the same verses appear in Matthew, Mark, Luke or John, I have chosen one for my gospel.

Matthew and Luke also both copied verses from the Gospel of "Q" (a gospel constructed based on the repetitions in Luke and Matthew) and I have eliminated the repetition with these verses as well. 30% of the unofficial Gospel of Thomas is repeated in the official gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.

I have kept the chronilogical order from the annunciation of the birth of John the Baptist to the Sermon on the Mount and from Jesus' entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday to the Resurrection. I have grouped the miracles, healings, raising
from the death, excorcisms, parables, teachings, and conflicts with the Pharisees together in categories and have not tried to keep them in chronilogical order.

The purpose of this gospel is simple; to make the story of Jesus more readable, more user friendly. In this gospel, you can read the story of Jesus from beginning to end without starting and stopping with each traditional gospel and without the repetition.

I feel the awesome power of the miracles, healings and teachings, etc. are more inspiring when read together.

If I have chosen Luke's rendition of certain verses over Matthew and so if you prefer Matthew's rendition, then substitute in Matthew. My goal is to increase the reading of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
