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. (res-2c3)

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 )

And this is a New Contract, a New Covenant, New Testament Between God and Mankind. The Old Contract, Old Covenant, Old Testament is Passing Away. Jesus Christ does NOT want animals sacrificed to him instead he wants to give mercy based on man kinds repentance and faith! (res-0)

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 studying the New Testament.  -  The Old Testament helps to understand

what 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 )

Jesus Christ came to reveal the True God to us, and the secrets of his kingdom, to his disciples )Born Again Christians-The Elect) not to everybody. (MT 11:27, 13:11). (res-2a)

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
