Publisher Comments:

The image of the historical Jesus takes form in the words of the Gospel Q. The Lost Gospel Q represents the very first Gospel, older than the traditional Gospels and written by Jesus's contemporaries. It preserves Jesus's original words — the Sermon on the Mount, Beatitudes, the Lord's Prayer, parables, and his counsel for a compassionate life. The original of the Gospel Q was lost for 2,000 years, but for the past 150 years historians and theologians have been digging through the many layers of the New Testament to uncover the original Gospel.


The author of "Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time" illuminates the historical Jesus by presenting the complete text of a missing gospel that contains Jesus' own words.

By the blessings of God of Israel I got the book “ the lost Gospel Q” as gift as I expressed my wish in my comment dated August 14,2008. I read the book with much curiosity and keen interest. As I am a person who spent his whole life to study the words of Jesus I have already formed some opinion about the teaching of Jesus. This book confirms my opinion and views.Thanks for the editor.

Whatever may be the opinion of scholars, it seems that Gospel of Mathew is the original one. It does not mean that others had not edited it by deleting or adding words subsequently in time to time to prove their belief is the right one. Why do we think Gospel according to Mathew is the original?

Jesus came at a time when the Jewish expectations of a Messiah was at its highest. In fact it was a time when the Jews wanted a messiah the at most. Jesus never believed that he was the messiah sent to save the Jews or the world. It is very clear from his words and deeds.He questioned the Jewish belief that Messiah will be son of David.MT.22:41-45.If any one says to you look here is the Christ or look he is their do not believe it.Mk.13:21. But the contemporary Jews could not understand the meaning of his words and deeds. Even 2000 years after his death, we who live in the modern world of knowledge explosion fail to understand the real Jesus.

Jesus is the most misunderstood person who ever lived on earth. See when he said "Most assuredly I say to you before Abrham was I am".John.8:58. the Jews took up stones to throw at him not knowing what is the meaning of his words. Jesus says,"Do not think I came to bring peace on earth.I did not come to bring peace but a sword". Mt.10:34.The whole world takes it lightly and believe Jesus is the prince of peace.In his own words " I was not sent except to the lost sheep of the house of Israel" Mt.15:24 and before his death he prayed for the Jews and he affirms that. see John 17:6-9.But most people on the earth believe he came to die on the cross as a sacrifice to save the whole human being of the world.

When he sent his apostles to preach the gospel he commanded them saying, go not into the way of the Gentiles and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not. But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. Acts of Apostles acknowledges that the disciples preached the gospel only to the Jews at first. They were not even aware that the gospel could be preached to the Gentiles.

Hence gospel of Mathew was written for the Jews only and it was the first gospel or original gospel. But when his disciples began to preach gospel to gentiles and began to baptize Gentiles they wrote a new gospel for the gentiles and that is the gospel of Luke. In that Gospel they removed all the sayings such as Jesus was not sent except to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. Then they thought it is not enough so they removed all controversial sayings from the gospel of Mathew and wrote an independent gospel acceptable to both Jews and Gentiles alike and that gospel is the gospel of Mark.

It is seen from the gospel of John that Jesus preached three years. Logic say s, Jesus might have told many many things more than mentioned in the “ Lost gospel Q”. Sayings of Jesus are scattered in all the gospels making it difficult like a riddle to find out which is original.

The editor of Lost gospel has not taken into account the following words of Jesus as his original sayings “I have not spoken of myself, but the father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. John.12:49 Whatsoever I speak, even as the father said unto me, so I speak.” Believe in God and believe also in me”.14:1 The word which ye hear is not mine, but the father's which sent me.14:24 Jesus says My father is greater than I ?! John14:28.( But the christians believe that they are equal and one) .Jesus said " If I say you would not believe. If you believe Moses you would have believed me because Moses has written about me in the scrolls. These words reveal who is Jesus.

The words of old Simon who took infant Jesus in his hands are really prophetic one .

He said,” This child is destined to reveal hearts of many and he will be instrumental for the fall of many in Israel”. When the editor of the lost gospels says Jesus is a wisdom teacher like Buddha he is revealing his own heart and not revealing who Jesus really is?

(A Personal request:

Truth about Jesus is hidden in the New Testament covered with the Christian interpretation of the words and deeds of Jesus.. We have to give a new interpretation for New Testament to reveal the real Jesus. Hence I have given a different interpretation for the New Testament. I request Bible scholars to examine my work and if you find it worth to be published please help me to publish my book )

Sorry I have not read the book. If anybody will send it to me as a gift I will be always grateful to that person. I am a person engaged in the writing of a different interpretation for New testament. Teachings of Jesus and Buddha has no relationship. Whatever Jesus preached was about the kingdom of God and nothing else. Jesus never claimed he is the son of Man. It is a misunderstanding that son of man is an individual. Son of Man is the symbol of the kingdom of god as it is in the book of Daniel.

I would like to contact Mr.Marcus J Borg. will you provide me with his email address.
