New Testament, the distinctively Christian portion of the Bible, consisting of 27 books of varying lengths dating from the earliest Christian period. The seven epistles whose authorship by St. Paul is undisputed were written 50–AD 60; most of the remaining books were written in the era AD 70–, often incorporating earlier traditions.

Introduction. Christianity began its world-career as a hope of Jesus’ messianic return; it very soon became a permanent and organized church. The books of the New Testament show us those first eschatological expectations gradually accommodating themselves to conditions of.

In New Testament times, the Roman government persecuted the Christians, and the Book of Revelation did for the Christians of that day what the Book of Daniel did for the Jews of an earlier date: assure those who were suffering for their faith that although the evil forces in the world were then in the ascendancy, the time was not far distant.

Despite variations in the arrangement of early lists of the New Testament books, Matthew always comes first. Perhaps this is why one famous scholar called Matthew "the most important book ever written." All of the Gospels share certain traits, and all of them have unique features as well.

The church could have proclaimed, and in fact did proclaim, the gospel without possessing the New Testament; but the New Testament could not have come into existence apart from the Church.

Chapter 2: Materials and Methods of Textual. The books of the New Testament are ordered by type of writing, not chronologically. The New Testament books are normally categorized as follows: Gospels: Matthew. Mark. Luke.

John. Acts of the Apostles. Pauline Epistles. For instance, the Hebrew Bible, or Tanakh, includes the first five books of the Christian Old Testament, called the Torah. Protestants and Catholics have the New Testament, but the Protestant Old Testament (same as the Hebrew Bible, though organized slightly differently) has seven fewer books than the one recognized by Roman Catholics.

The Historical Books of the New Testament are the four Gospels — The Gospel According to Mathew, The Gospel According to Mark, The Gospel According to Luke, The Gospel According to John — and the Book of chapters together tell the story of Jesus and His Church.

They offer the framework by which you can understand the rest of the New Testament because these books provide the Author: Kelli Mahoney. Christianity is the religion that was primarily inspired by the New Testament, but there is nobody who lives their lives strictly according to the provisions of the New Testament.

27 Books and 9 Authors The New Testament contains 27 different books written by nine different authors. Every author of the New Testament was Jewish except for Luke.

Three of the writers: Matthew, Peter, and John were among the 12 disciples who walked with Christ during his earthly ministry. The books included in the New Testament were appealed to in debate with schismatics as trustworthy records of apostolic belief and practice.

They served an even more important purpose in being read from week to week, in the public meetings of the churches, along with the Old Testament scriptures.

The Roman Catholic canon also includes the Deuterocanonical books as part of the Old Testament (these are considered apocryphal by most Protestants).

The Hebrew Bible recognizes the books referred to as the Old Testament in the Protestant Bible, but not. Around the world, Christians read and study the New Testament because they regard it as a religious book.

Here, the word religious means that Christians think the New Testament is divinely inspired, sacred, and authoritative in matters of faith and conduct.

The New Testament, however, did not begin as a unified collection of books that were divinely inspired, sacred, and authoritative. The New Testament is the second, shorter part of the Christian Bible.

Unlike the Old Testament, which covers hundreds of years of history, the New Testament only covers several decades, and is a collection of the religious teachings and beliefs of Christianity. The New Testament is not a single book.
