Second half of the Christian Bible, comprised of 4 accounts of the life of Jesus (Gospels), the historical account of the first apostles (Acts), various letters written by leaders of the early church (Epistles) and the Apocalypse of John (Revelation).

The New Testament was originally written in Greek in the first century A.D. The last book written, The Revelation of St. John was written in 90 A.D.

Today we have many references to the New Testament which are famous:
"root of all evil" (1 Tim 6:10)
"Go the extra mile" (Matthew 5:41)
"Apocalypse" ("Revelation" in Greek)
"Armageddon" (Revelation 16:16)
and countless more...

The second half of the Bible, containing the Gospel (good news), a large number of letters to lost churches and tribes, some important history, and a prophecy of the apocalypse.

The New Testament is mainly focused on the Gospel, which literally translates into "good news", and basically shows us what God did for us some 2000 years ago by miking his own son a perfect, sentient being who committed no sins, and was killed as the ultimate sacrifice, allowing everone who lets Jesus into his heart through prayer to go to heaven forever and ever and ever.

Now, especially on this website, this section, the Bible, the man whom the New Testament focuses on, and the deity who created it all, are all ridiculed and mocked by those who still have the opportunity to go to heaven, but ignore it and are destined to spend an eternity in hell.
