The Bible comprises the Christian sacred scriptures.
It is God’s revelation to mankind.
It contains teachings about God’s love for the world in providing Christ, the life of salvation for mankind.
The Bible is divided into two main sections. There are 39 books in the Old Testament and 27 books in the New Testament.
“Testament ” refers to the covenant God has established with men.
“The Old Testament” denotes the covenant which God established in the beginning with his chosen people, Israel. Then, because the Israelites rejected the covenant and sinned, God, gave His only beloved Son, who suffered death and shed His blood to redeem the world, and so established a new covenant with mankind.
That is why the original covenant is called the Old Testament and renewed one is called the New Testament.
However, the New Testament does not cancel the Old Testament, but fulfills it.
