    The New Testament has 27 books total, which consist of Historical Books - Matthew, Mark, Luke, (Hebrews may be of Pauline origin. There is much debate on its authorship). James - a practical exhortation of believers to live a Christian life evidencing regeneration. It urges self-examination of the evidence of the changed life. The New Testament (NT) contains four biographies of Jesus (the Gospels), one history book of the early church (Acts), twenty-one letters (Romans to Jude), and an apocalypse (Revelation).

    In effect, this work successfully unites both the theology and the historical development of the canon, ultimately serving as a practical defense for the authority of the New Testament books. Canon Revisited: Establishing the Origins and Authority of the New Testament Books () by Michael J. Kruger4/5(1). 2nd book of the New Testament: the 2nd Gospel, which focuses on Jesus' person (as Messiah - both man and God). Luke. 3rd book of the New Testament: the 3rd Gospel, written by a doctor for the gentiles. John. 4th book of the New Testament: the last Gospel, written by "the one whom Jesus loved.".

It was reserved to modern times, especially to our own days, to dispute and deny the truth of the opinion received from the ancients concerning the origin of the books of the New Testament. This doubt and the negation regarding the authors had their primary cause in .
