Excerpt from The New Testament: Being the English Only of the Greek and English Testament
These books are also called The Scriptures, or The Writings, be cause these Writings are held by christians in the highest estimation. They are the scriptures of the New Testament, or more properly speak ing of the New Covenant, because they contain a complete account of the christian dispensation, which is described as a covenant by which Almighty God engages to bestow eternal lim upon the penitent and virtuous believer in Christ. For this reason the christian scriptures, and particularly the books which contain the history of Jesus Christ, are called the Gospel, or Good news, a literal translation of the word sea-names, as these sacred writings contain the best tidings which could be communicated to mankind.
