Before you say “a book” ask yourself what the book says the New Testament is.

I would say that the New Testament is a way of life, a guide for salvation.

Easy. Testament is another word for covenant, so…. The precious blood of our Lord Jesus Christ

The New Testament is simply the New Covenant, the Paschal sacrifice and mystery of Christ’s passion, death, and resurrection that gave us life and conquered death and sin. The New Testament is not a book but the collection of the “books of the New Covenant.” The old covenant involved animal sacrifice, God’s law and presence in the ark then the Holy of Holies, and the old passover. The New Covenant (the veil in the temple was split from top to bottom signifying the end of the old) involves the presence of Christ in the New Covenant Passover meal which is the Liturgy of the Eucharist, Christ’s presence in the Eucharist, and the Church. It began with “Emanuel,” God with us, then sacrificial redemption, then “paraclete,” Holy Spirit manifest in us.

The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not a communion with the Blood of Christ?
