The Earliest Gospels brings together the latest research on the origins of the gospels and their transmission, by many of the leading international New Testament scholars. It also provides the only guide to one of the most important primary sources in New Testament scholarship, the Chester Beatty Codex P45.

Contributors include Martin Hengel, Graham Stanton, James Robinson, Barbara Aland, Larry Hurtado, William Petersen, Sean Freyne, Harry Gamble, Martin McNamara, and J. K. Elliott.

Part 1 examines the general contextual background to the gospels: an introduction to the gospel genre, literacy among early Christians, and all that is known about the origins and transmission of the gospels.

Part 2 focuses on the significance of P45, its place as the earliest Christian gospel-book, its unique readings, the earliest extant version of the gospel of Mark, and how the manuscript was found piece by piece by an American collector.
