While the Old Testament was mostly written in Hebrew, The New Testament was written in Greek and is regarded as the agreement made by God with His people after the coming of Christ. It is the account of the Son of man and was where God Himself became man to save His people by offering salvation. The New Testament contains parables which are often used in sermons and most Christian teachings. Beginning with Christ, the New Testament is the reason the Church exists.
