New Testament
The New Testament is the second major part of the Christian biblical canon, the first part being the Old Testament, based on the Hebrew Bible. The New Testament discusses the teachings and person of Jesus, as well as events in first-century Christianity. Christians regard both the Old and New Testaments together as sacred scripture.

The New Testament consists of 27 books which serve as a source for Christian theology and morality. It is an anthology, a collection of Christian works written in the Greek language within the first 100-years of Jesus, at different times by various writers, who were early Jewish followers of Jesus.

The baptism of John, was it from heaven, or of men?
3 of 47
And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven; he will say, Why then believed ye him not?

8 of 47
And at the season he sent a servant to the husbandmen, that they should give him of the fruit of the vineyard: but the husbandmen beat him, and sent him away empty.
9 of 47

11 of 47
Then said the lord of the vineyard, What shall I do? I will send my beloved son: it may be they will reverence him when they see him.
12 of 47
But when the husbandmen saw him, they reasoned among themselves, saying, This is the heir: come, let us kill him, that the inheritance may be ours.
13 of 47
So they cast him out of the vineyard, and killed him. What therefore shall the lord of the vineyard do unto them?
14 of 47
He shall come and destroy these husbandmen, and shall give the vineyard to others. And when they heard it, they said, God forbid.

21 of 47

26 of 47
Saying, Master, Moses wrote unto us, If any man's brother die, having a wife, and he die without children, that his brother should take his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother.
27 of 47

32 of 47
And Jesus answering said unto them, The children of this world marry, and are given in marriage:
33 of 47
But they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage:
34 of 47
Neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto the angels; and are the children of God, being the children of the resurrection.
35 of 47

39 of 47

40 of 47
And David himself saith in the book of Psalms, The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand,
41 of 47
Till I make thine enemies thy footstool.
42 of 47
David therefore calleth him Lord, how is he then his son?

45 of 47
Which devour widows' houses, and for a shew make long prayers: the same shall receive greater damnation.
