The New Testament

The Bible is divided into the Old Testament and the New Testament. All the devotions in this book are about people, events or things from the New Testament.
There are three very important reasons why Christians should read and study the New Testament. First, the New Testament tells us about Jesus’ life on earth, His death and His resurrection. Second, we can learn from the New Testament how to become a Christian. Third, the New Testament tells us how to live a Christian life.
When we study the Old Testament, we learn about God’s people. In the New Testament we can see how God worked through these people to prepare the world for Jesus to come to earth. The Old Testament has many prophecies about Jesus. In the New Testament we can read that these prophecies really happened.
Our Bible Reading today reminds us that the Bible is from God. I hope that you will read all the devotions in this book and that you will “be ready and will have everything” you need “to do every good work” (verse 17b).
