New Testament Studies

 

The New Testament consist of 27 books, all written in the first century AD. 

The authors (Disciples & Paul) who  has written them bears witness to Jesus

Christ and the story regarding the promised Messiah, the prophecies from the

Old  Testament.  The New Testament is a new covenant that enables us to be

restored to God through his Son Jesus Christ because of Gods grace not by

any human effort, (Ro 9:16).  (Lk 22:17-20, 1Co 11:25, Heb 8:7-13, 9:15).  ( res-3e )

Let Us Pray: Dear heavenly Father, in your name, Jesus Christ name and the name of the Holy Spirit we pray that

we may read and learn your holy words and apply them to our daily lives as you will us to.  We pray that our

understanding will be in line with your intentions and meanings of your Holy Words.  AMEN!

1) Definitions

Before continuing; We need to remember the meaning of the following words a) "New Testament"

and "Covenant" as follows;

a) New Testament & Covenant; From Fausset's Bible Dictionary;  Hebrew b­riyt, Greek diatheekee.

From baarah "to divide" or" cut in two" a victim (Gesenius), between the parts of which the covenanting

parties passed (Genesis 15:9, etc.; Jeremiah 34:18-19). Probably the covenanting parties eating together

(which barah sometimes means) of the feast after the sacrifice entered into the idea; compare

Genesis 31:46-47, Jacob and Laban( res-2c4 )

For More on Fausset's definition's of Testament (I.E. Covenant) see his Bible Dictionary.

2) What is the New Testament?  -  The New Testament is a collection of twenty seven books, all written in

first century AD.  They tell the story of Jesus of Nazareth, the savior promised in the Old Testament. ( res-3e )

3) Why is it called the New Testament?  -  The collection of twenty seven books is "NEW" in contrast to

the "OLD" Testament.  It is also called the New Testament because when Jesus died on the cross and

rose from the dead, he made possible a new relationship with God for everyone who believes in him. ( res-3e )

4) Get to know God Personally--by reading the New Testament.  -  The Old Testament helps to understand

God is like.  The New Testament shows us how we can have a personal relationship with God right now.

When we have a personal relationship with Jesus we can find fulfillment by loving God and loving other

people.( res-3e )

5) What's in the New Testament?  -  The books of the New Testament are divided into four different kinds of

writings. All of these books tells about Jesus Christ and what it means to be a follower of Jesus.  The most

important question any person can raise are asked and answered in these New Testament writings. ( res-3e )
