The New Testament interprets the Old Testament and expands its message. It offers a blueprint for living in the age of grace and provides behavioral patterns that span all time. The life, ministry, death and resurrection of Christ are detailed in the Gospels. The continuation of His ministry in the power of the Holy Spirit is recorded in the Book of Acts. The Epistles build upon His teachings and the Book of Revelation describes His glorious Second Coming.

In his introduction to the New Testament in the Ryrie Study Bible, Charles C. Ryrie correctly writes: “The message of the New Testament centers on (1) the Person who gave Himself for the remission of sins (Matthew 26:28) and (2) the people (the church) who have received His salvation. Thus the central theme of the New Testament is salvation. The Gospels introduce the Savior. The book called the Acts of the Apostles describes the spread of the good news about His salvation through a large part of the Mediterranean world of the first century A.D. The letters give details of the blessings of that salvation, and Revelation previews the culmination of salvation.”
