Introductions to the Books of the New Testament

This page contains links to articles which give helpful information about each of the books in the New Testament. They include information about the author and date of the book, together with relevant historical background information to set the book into its original context, as well as a description of the main themes of the book.

Introductions to all twenty-seven books are available below. The links are listed in the same order as in the English New Testament. The books of 1 and 2 Thessalonians are covered together, as are the books of 2 and 3 John, because the background information for the books in each pair are fairly similar.
