Excerpt from The Gospels and the Acts of the ApostlesIt must, of course, be remembered that the New Testament is in a very real sense the covenant itself. The New Testament, therefore, is a record of the covenant relationship into which God enters with those who by faith appropriate the redemption as wrought by Jesus Christ. The name, "New Testament," as found in our English Bibles is taken from the Latin Vulgate Version - "Novum Testamentum."The New Testament is "The Book - of Jesus Christ" (Matthew i. 1) just as the Old Testament is "The Book - of Adam" (Genesis v.1. See also Luke x. 20; Revelation xx. 12-15; xxi. -27). The Old Testament is the covenant of works, and ends in a curse (Malachi iv. 6; cf. Galatians iii. 10); the New Testament is the covenant of grace, and ends with a blessing (Revelation xxii. 14, 21).The Order of the Books. In speaking of the order of the books of the New Testament it should be observed that there is not only harmony, but progress also in their doctrinal teaching, and that this harmony and progress may be looked upon as an evidence of the guiding hand of God in connection therewith. In order, however, to see the progress and development in the teachings of the New Testament it is necessary to read and study the books composing it in their logical order and arrangement. That the student of the Bible may be helped in this particular direction the following order of the books is suggested:The order of the four Gospels is probably that in which they occur in our English Bible, although modern scholarship is inclined to give Mark the precedence over Matthew.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
