Those are called *gospels*. I’d recommend starting with the gospel of Mark. Jesus’ longest speech (the sermon on the mount) is contained in Matthew’s gospel. Many of the best beloved parables is found in Luke’s gospel. John’s gospel spends a lot of time in Jesus’ final week. But Mark is the one with the least amount of fluff.

Sorry, I meant literally every word Jesus said in the bible, including those in the other books in the New Testament. And then assembled, woven together into something cohesive. Rather than reading the whole of a "word of Christ in red" style Bible where things are far away from each other. I would like to hear everything that Jesus said, but in a shorter, easier to manage form.

Many theologians believe that there is a document known as [the Q document](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Q_source?wprov=sfti1), so simply Q \(and please, let’s skip any modern jokes about QAnon\). What Q is supposed to be is difficult, but one proposed version is what you’re suggesting. Q could be a sayings document, capturing what Jesus said. It would be Mark, then Matthew and Luke, who would take Q to form narratives around Q. ~~The responses I’ve seen to your post so far may not quite understand your request.~~ *Edit: the responses I’ve seen to your post so far probably see what you’re asking for as redundant.* What you’re asking is for the sayings of Jesus wrapped up in a cohesive narrative. We believe that is what the Gospels are. The book you desire would be another book of the gospels. You do have the extension of “but the words Jesus said in other books,” which would be, off the top of my head, portions of Acts, Corinthians, and Revelation. But these latter portions are just really snippets, and to weave a narrative around them would be difficult, especially when dealing with Revelation. I don’t know if something as dry and academic as the discussion of the Q source would be your thing. One can easily fall into a rabbit hole of study by discussing whether Q is even necessary.

Oh, thanks. I remember discussions of Q in the preface to the NT and introductions to the books in the New Oxford Annotated Bible, so I have some references to that at home I can look at.

No; John 21:25 makes that clear: Joh 21:25  And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written.

Don't be lazy. Read the four gospels. It's important and Holy Spirit is still on duty to help you understand.

Hi there. I have already read the four gospels. But, I would like to know if there is a book that weaves all the words of Christ together along with those that appear in the rest of the new testament for greater insight. I'm not a Christian, so I'm already being industrious by studying something I don't believe in, that's not lazy.

God presents His Word in the way he wants. He has put it together very thoughtfully. If you want to understand Jesus Christ then read it as he gives it to you. God believes in you
