What Does Injeel Mean?

By on

“Injeel” is an important word used by Muslims to refer to the Bible, but unfortunately, there is confusion about what it means.  In the Qur’an, Injeel refers to the book revealed to Jesus, and means, roughly, “The Gospel.” In practice however, at times Muslims use Injeel to refer to the four gospels, to an individual gospel, to the New Testament, or even the entire Bible. This segment attempts to clarify the distinction between individual gospels, like Injeel Yuhanna for the Gospel of John, the Injeel as the New Testament, etc.
