The Historical Books. 1 the New Testament Bible> Library. The Historical Books. 1 the New Testament Companion to the Bible— E. Barrows. CHAPTER XXIX. THE HISTORICAL BOOKS The New Testament, like the Old, is not an abstract system of doctrines and duties, but a record of facts involving doctrines and duties of the highest import.

Newly revised, Dr. Benware offers a chronological approach to give A Historic View Of The New Testament book a bird's-eye view of the historic value of the Old Testament, while his book-by-book analysis reveals important details and you want a better understanding of the whole Bible, Survey of the Old Testament is the place to start.

Bart Ehrman is the quintessential professor/academic, and this textbook, which has been revised repeatedly so as to stay up to date and current on research, walks you through how the New Testament was written, the books which it is composed of, the historic data supporting it, and information about the writers (in terms of what is historically known about them)/5(35).

The New Testament, then, is a historical book of the Good News of the living God at work in human history, not just in the past, but in the living present and the future in light of the promises of God. The New Testament also contains a history of the first missionary efforts of the Church (the book of Acts); letters from early leaders, such as Peter and Paul, that admonish the early Christians (who were also called Saints) to remain true to the faith; a testimony (Hebrews); and an apocalypse (Revelation) that promises the return of the Lord in the latter days.

Each of the writers has a different perspective to. 61 rows  List of the Dates and Places of the New Testament Books. This chart shows a chronology. 27 Books and 9 Authors The New Testament contains 27 different books written by nine different authors. Every author of the New Testament was Jewish except for Luke.

Three of the writers: Matthew, Peter, and John were among the 12 disciples who walked with Christ during his earthly ministry. The conventional sources of historical evidence (archaeological remains, written documents) provide few traces of the Old Testament story and none at all of the events described in the New Testament.

Yet in the Bible the early Jews and Christians provide an account of themselves which is unparalleled, among religious groups of those times, in its wealth of detail. What Was Jesus’ View of The New Testament.

Jesus believed the Old Testament was God’s authoritative Word. In the same manner, He authorized the divine status of the New Testament ahead of time. Jesus made the following promises to His disciples while He was still here on earth.

First, He said that He was going to leave His disciples. The books of the New Testament were composed not in order to satisfy historical curiosity about the events they recount but to bear witness to a faith in the action of God through these events. A history of the New Testament is made difficult by the relatively short time span covered by its books when compared with the millennium and more of history described by the Old Testament.

The historicity of the Bible is the question of the Bible's relationship to history – covering not just the Bible's "acceptability as history" but also the ability to understand the literary forms of biblical narrative.

One can extend biblical historicity to the evaluation of whether or not the Christian New Testament is an accurate record of the historical Jesus and of the Apostolic Age.

After Joshua, the history books take us through Israel's ups and downs under Judges, its transition to kingship, the division of the nation and its life as two rival kingdoms (Israel and Judah), the moral decline and exile of both kingdoms, the period of captivity, and finally, the nation's return from exile.

Most scholars who study the historical Jesus and early Christianity believe that the canonical gospels and the life of Jesus must be viewed within their historical and cultural context, rather than purely in terms of Christian orthodoxy. They look at Second Temple Judaism, the tensions, trends, and changes in the region under the influence of Hellenism and the Roman occupation, and the Jewish factions of the.

For example, Christian Bibles include dozens of books, and the Hebrew Bible, or Tanakh, contains 24 books, including the Torah, the Nevi'im, and the Ketuvim. The original Christian Bible is the Old Testament, and the New Testament, which includes the Canonical gospels, the Acts of the Apostles, the Epistles, and the Book of Revelation.

The New Testament (NT) contains four biographies of Jesus (the Gospels), one history book of the early church (Acts), twenty-one letters (Romans to Jude), and an apocalypse (Revelation). The Origins of the New Testament The holy book of the first Christians was the collection of Jewish writings that Christians call the Old particular the Greek translation of the Old Testament - the Septuagint - achieved a strong position among Christians.

Besides the Old Testament writings the early Christians valued oral tradition, which was of several types. The New Testament, as usually received in the Christian Churches, is made up of twenty-seven different books attributed to eight different authors, six of whom are numbered among the Apostles (Matthew, John, Paul, James, Peter, Jude) and two among their immediate disciples (Mark, Luke).

In view of these facts, an adequate understanding of the books in the New Testament cannot be had without some knowledge of the historical background from which they were written, but just how this knowledge can be obtained presents something of a problem.

Despite variations in the arrangement of early lists of the New Testament books, Matthew always comes first. Perhaps this is why one famous scholar called Matthew "the most important book ever written." All of the Gospels share certain traits, and all of them have unique features as well.
