The Bible In Small Bites
Knowing what books of the Bible offers what information can help you immerse yourself better in the word of God.
The Epistles of the New Testament are considered by Christians to be divinely inspired and holy letters, written by the apostles and disciples of Christ, to either local congregations with specific needs, or to New Covenant Christians in general, scattered about; or “General Epistles.”
The Pauline epistles are the thirteen New Testament books which present Paul the Apostle as their author.
Six of the letters are disputed. Four are thought by most modern scholars to be pseudepigraphic, i.e., not actually written by Paul even if attributed to him within the letters themselves.
Opinion is more divided on the other two disputed letters (2 Thessalonians and Colossians). These letters were written to the Christian communities in specific cities or geographical regions, often to address issues faced by that particular community. Prominent themes include the relationship both to broader “pagan” society, to Judaism, and to other Christians.
The books are:
- 1st and 2nd Corinthians
- 1st and 2nd Thessalonians
- 1st and 2nd Timothy
The Pastoral epistles, presented as if written by Paul, are addressed to individuals with pastoral oversight of churches and discuss issues of Christian living, doctrine and leadership. They often address different concerns to those of the preceding epistles.
The books are:
- 1st and 2nd Peter
- 1st, 2nd, and 3rd John
"All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness." -2 Timothy 3:16
