1.2.4 The New Testament

The New Testament contains the records of the mission and activity of Jesus and His Apostles handed down in the gospels and the Acts. Letters from the Apostles to the congregations and individuals provide insight into the congregational life and missionary activity in the early Christian period. These letters also provide explanations about the doctrine, which the Apostles proclaimed by commission of their Sender.


In the Revelation of Jesus Christ, the prophetical book of the New Testament, Jesus Christ admonishes His church in various ways, comforts them with the promise of His return, and points to future events.
