The New Testament: a translation in the language of the people. [Charles B Williams;] -- In the minds of many exacting Greek scholars this is the best translation of the New Testament existing in the English language today.

The New Testament (Ancient Greek: Ἡ Καινὴ Διαθήκη, transl. Hē Kainḕ Diathḗkē; Latin: Novum Testamentum) is the second part of the Christian biblical canon, the first being the Old New Testament discusses the teachings and person of Jesus, as well as events in first-century ians regard both the Old and New Testaments together as.
