I. INTRODUCTION

Good afternoon, brothers and sisters. Sister Moon is taking her daughter down to So. Va. College and asked me to substitute. I want to thank my son Stan for agreeing to watch my rugrat, Trevor, during this lesson. Feel free to help Stan out if you see he needs it.

II. SHOW AND TELL

Let me begin the introduction with a little show and tell.

III. HISTORICAL BACKGROUND

IV. IMPORTANT GROUPS IN THE NEW TESTAMENT

V. WRITING THE NEW TESTAMENT

VI. ASSEMBLING AND TRANSLATING THE NEW TESTAMENT

VII. CONCLUSION

We believe the Bible to be the word of God, insofar as it is translated correctly. The imperfections of the New Testament provide us with great opportunities. These imperfections are personal revelation just waiting to happen. The New Testament's central mission is to testify of the mission and divinity of Jesus Christ. It does that mission well.

Finally, let me bear you my testimony. I have had personal revelation that tells me the teachings in the New Testament are true. As the result of studying the New Testament, the Holy Ghost has borne witness to my that Jesus is my Savior. To this I add my witness to those of Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Paul, and Peter. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
