Hello,

I know Br Joseph has partly answered this question in a couple of articles:

Technically you are correct, there is only one Injil. Injil (Gospel) means "Good News", and so "Jesus was given the INjil" is literally translated "Jesus was given the Good News." What you refer to as 4 Injil's, are actually 4 inspired writings by those in the era of Nabi Isa of the one Injil. It is generally understood they were 4 different audiences. For example, the record of Matthew is more written for the audience following the Torah, Hebrews...and in fact deals with issues relating to living under the Torah / Sharia.

Wasalam
