Understanding the New Testament

Over the past couple of Sundays Pastor has given to us a helpful structure of the New Testament. Understanding how all the books of the New Testament work together is essential when attempting to understand what God is communicating to us as His people. I hope this small chart is helpful to you.

Overall Theme of the New Testament:

the Person & Work of Jesus Christ

  1. The Gospels (Matthew – John): the Gospels serve as the Introduction to the Person and Work of Jesus Christ
  2. The Book of Acts: the book of Acts serves as the Proclamation of the Person and Work of Jesus Christ
  3. The Letters (Romans – Jude): the Epistles serve as the Explanation of the Person and Work of Jesus Christ
  4. The Revelation: the book of Revelation serves to Reveal the Person and Work of Jesus Christ
