What is New Testament?

The New Testament (NT) is the fulfillment of the prophecies (the Law, Prophets, and Psalms),
which were once promises of God in Christ Jesus that are given by God Himself for His people
through prophets. In other words, the NT is about Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who came into
this world to fulfill the Law and prophets of God to redeem His people from the burden of the
Law and the bondage of Sins and Satan. After fulfilling the demands of the Old Covenant, God
has begun the New Covenant in Christ and His works. Though it was declared by God through
Jeremiah, the fullness of the New Covenant is revealed and realized in Christ. During the feast
of Passover, Christ has revealed this truth and instituted it for His people. This everlasting
covenant is also called New Covenant in Christ (NCC) for all. Hebrews 8: 13 says, ―In speaking
of a new covenant, He makes the first one obsolete. And what is becoming obsolete and
growing old is ready to vanish away (ESV). In other words, on the one hand, a former
commandment is set aside because of its weakness and uselessness (for the law made nothing
perfect); but on other hand, a better hope is introduced, through which we draw near to God.
(Heb. 7:18-19, ESV).
The NT is also called the second part of the Bible. It consists of 27 books. It includes the four
Gospels, the Acts of the Apostles, twenty-one Epistles, and the book of Revelation. It is
originally written in Greek by 9 writers. Thus, it records the life and teachings of Christ that
interpret the OT rightly to show God‘s Wills and His Ways for Jews and Gentiles
