Still accomplish with their new textbook aimed at college and seminary level courses on Paul and his writings. Longenecker and Still bring decades of study and expertise to Thinking through Paul, challenging readers to delve deeply into Paul’s writings and wrestle with his richly-layered and dynamic theological discourse/5(44). Much of the thought of the New Testament is concerned with the interpretation of the Old. Much of it is, we might say, artistic rather than speculative -- as the New Testament writers search through the Old Testament for answers to their questions, and come upon Christ in the Old Testament in most unexpected places. The New Testament: 27 books in 5 categories. The New Testament books fall into five general categories: the Gospels, the single book of Acts, Paul’s letters to churches, Paul’s letters to church leaders, and a collection of letters sent out (mostly) to large groups of people. 27 Books and 9 Authors The New Testament contains 27 different books written by nine different authors. Every author of the New Testament was Jewish except for Luke. Three of the writers: Matthew, Peter, and John were among the 12 disciples who walked with Christ during his earthly ministry.
The Thinking Through the Bible series explores the repeated patterns of the Bible along with its overall narrative shape to generate a series of tools for cultural critique. The aim is to dive deeply into the Bible in order to draw out fresh, faithful, sensitive and constructive interventions into important social and intellectual debates. When we turn our attention to the New Testament, again it’s best to keep thinking in terms of groups of books, and then the order of books within them. Here, the four Gospels were gathered into a group (and Luke was separated from Acts), the letters of Paul formed another group, and then the general letters were another group. Proverbs - The heart of the righteous ponders how to answer,But the mouth of the wicked pours out evil things. Sinful thoughts are often something we believers struggle with. Sometimes we have no control as to what thoughts enter our minds, however we are able to take control of these thoughts. God's Word's help us to recognize our thoughts for what they really are, and how to act (or not act) upon them. Use these Bible verses to help control your thoughts in a way God encourages us to.

The New Testament, as usually received in the Christian Churches, is made up of twenty-seven different books attributed to eight different authors, six of whom are numbered among the Apostles (Matthew, John, Paul, James, Peter, Jude) and two among their immediate disciples (Mark, Luke).
