The New Testament consists of:
- Four narratives of the life, teaching, death and resurrection of Jesus called “gospel” or the good news.
- A narrative of the Apostle ministries in the early church called the “Acts of the Apostles”, and probably written by the same writer as the Gospel of Luke, which it continues;
- Twenty-one letters, often called “epistles” from Greek “epistle”, written by various authors, and consisting of Christian doctrine, counsel, instruction, and conflict resolution; and
- An Apocalypse, the Book of Revelation, which is a book of prophecy, containing some instructions to seven local congregations of Asia Minor, but mostly containing prophetical symbology, about the end times.
