Scott, Walter - Bible Handbook New Testament

We desire, in the following pages, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, to gather together some of the many things that throw light upon the various writings which form the Book commonly called the New Testament.

We are not aware that God Himself gave the book this title, though we doubt not He guided those who first collected the sacred writings to place them in the order in which we now find them, and also over-ruled the selection of a title for the collected books.

While there was only the Old Testament writings it was not needful to call them old; but when a new dispensation was brought in, with scriptures belonging thereto, it was necessary (while calling the whole collection the Bible - The Book) to distinguish between the writings belonging to the old order of things, and those belonging to the new order.

It is important to see that the latter is not merely a continuance of what had existed before, though all had surely come from God. Many passages of scripture clearly point out the difference, such as "The law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ." (Joh_1:7.) "Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he. And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force. For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John." (Mat_11:11-13.) "Neither do men put new wine into old bottles: else the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish: but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved." (Mat_9:17.) In the first and second epistles of John that which Christ introduced is again and again called " the beginning," surely signifying the beginning of Christianity.

It is therefore quite right and becoming that the inspired writings which unfold Christianity should be collected together, and have a distinguishing title such as, in the providence of God, has been given to them in the familiar but hallowed title of "The New Testament." The Christian may regard it as his Father's "will."
