The New Testament 20 Aug 2020
A Testament is the last will of someone. God had a covenant with the Jewish people. The Old Testament deals with that.
God made a New Testament through Jesus Christ. His last will. He wants all people saved for an eternal life with Him. And the Saviour is available to us now. God invites us to become free for a good future. Such is his will.
Saint Luke gives a testimony on his investigation about the events of the life of Jesus Christ.
Seeing that many others have undertaken to draw up accounts of the events that have reached their fulfilment among us,
as these were handed down to us by those who from the outset were eyewitnesses and ministers of the word,
I in my turn, after carefully going over the whole story from the beginning,
have decided to write an ordered account for you, Theophilus,
so that your Excellency may learn how well founded the teaching is that you have received.
