No - "strongest." (What is stronger than being willing to act on your beliefs?)

The Gospel of the NT. The "good news," as in, e.g., Wikipedia's
commentary: "A gospel (from Old English, gōd spell "good news") is a
writing that describes the life of Jesus. The word is primarily used
to refer to the four canonical gospels: the Gospel of St.Matthew,
Gospel of St. Mark, Gospel of St.Luke and Gospel of St.John, probably
written between AD 65 and 80."

And he was/is willing to pick up his cross and follow Jesus.
