Origin of Gospel
From Middle English gospel, gospell, godspel, godspell, goddspell, from Old English godspel (“gospel, glad tidings; one of the four gospels”), corresponding to god + spell (“talk, tale, story”), believed to be an alteration of earlier *gōdspell (literally “good news”), used to translate ecclesiastical Latin bona annuntiatio, itself a translation of Ecclesiastical Latin evangelium / Ancient Greek εὐαγγέλιον (euangelion, “evangel”, literally “good news”). Compare Old Saxon godspel, godspell (“gospel”), Old High German gotspel (“gospel”), Icelandic guðspjall (“gospel”).
Middle English from Old English gōdspel (ultimately translation of Greek euangelion) gōd good good spel news
