304 New Testament

The New Testament begins with the incarnation of Jesus which signifies a major turning point in Scripture. Jesus, Son of the living God, the “Word of God,” exceeds all human expectations of a Messiah. His mission is to proclaim the Kingdom of God already among us. The writings of the four evangelists recount their individual perception of Christ, as told to the Christian Communities they serve. In addition to the Gospels, the Acts of the Apostles, the letters of Paul and others in the early apostolic community, and the Apocalyptic writings grow into a sound Catholic Christology by which we, today, continue to effectively evangelize and catechize.
