Millions of people view it as absolutely true scripture, and use its teachings as the basis of their belief systems.
Only in the second century did Christians begin to use the term “New Testament” to refer to their collection of scriptures.
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 as we now know it is comprised of twenty-seven books, but it was not originally written as a coherent whole.
Jesus himself did not produce any written record of his work.
