    Ideally, I would have a good editing job done on the Gospels. There is a group in the USA, I think they go by the name of 'The Jesus Seminar', who examines the Gospels and try to decide what is genuine and what is not. You must remember that the Gospels were copied by hand for some four centuries, and it is not beyond some of the scribes to include, or delete, sentences or stories. I should add that this view applies to all 'Holy Writ'. There are some stories in the Gospels that are totally misinterpreted. One example is the one about Jesus on the Cross being given vinegar. The implication has always been that this is an act meant to increase His suffering, when in fact it was act of Charity done by some local ladies who gave vinegar to people being left on the cross by the Romans in order to reduce their pain by dulling their senses. The Romans crucified thousands of Jews at that time in order to scare them into submission. etc. etc.
