The Origin of the New Testament: and the most important consequences of the new creation
This book takes a historical approach to examine the actual factors that contributed to the emergence of the New Testament and their implications for Christian beliefs. By critically assessing traditional Christian perspectives on the formation of the New Testament and relying on historical evidence, this book presents original findings and insights that hold special importance.
The initial section of the book explores the circumstances and factors that led to the emergence of the New Testament. It specifically addresses five significant historical issues, with the first being how the Church acquired an additional authoritative collection of books alongside the Old Testament.
This book seeks to provide answers to questions such as why there is only one book of revelations in the New Testament instead of none or multiple.
The second part of the book addressed the implications of the formation of the New Testament through eleven significant aspects, which is an extensive and crucial matter. The book delves into questions such as whether the New Testament inhibits the creation of authoritative texts and examines its introduction and distinctive characteristics.
