The New Testament is the second part of the Christian Bible chronicling the life and teachings of Jesus Christ of Nazareth and his disciples. The Bible claims Jesus was the son of God, born to the virgin Mary. Jesus performed miracles that fed the hungry and healed the sick, teaching his followers to love thy neighbor and enemy, guidelines of pacifism, forgiveness, charity, renunciation of earthly posessions and humility. Jesus was crucified by the Romans and, after three days in the tomb, was resurrected.
The Old Testament of the Bible is the first half of the Christian Bible, sharing stories with the Jewish torah. The Old Testament tells the story of God's creation of all existence and His evolving relationship with mankind, from His expulsion of Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden for disobeying Him, through the flood and preservation of Noah, the covenant between God and the Israelites, and the descendants of Jacob, their battles, misfortunes and victories. Thematically, the Old Testament emphasizes obedience, law, tradition, honesty and piety.
