Books of the New Testament

Four hundred years after the close of the Old Testament, the New Testament completes the cosmic story of God’s plan to bring salvation upon the earth.  The word testament is best translated as “covenant.” The New Testament embodies the new covenant of which Jesus was mediator.  This new covenant was sealed with the atoning death of Jesus Christ.

The New Testament opens with five narrative books – four Gospels and the Acts of the Apostles.  The Gospels cover the ministry, death, and resurrection of Jesus.  The Book of Acts continues the story of the development of the early church over the next thirty years.
