In 15 New Testament Words of Life, biblical scholar Nijay Gupta explores some of the most important New Testament words:

  • Righteousness
  • Gospel
  • Forgiveness
  • Life
  • Cross
  • Faith
  • Grace
  • Fellowship
  • Hope
  • Salvation
  • Peace
  • Religion
  • Holiness
  • Love
  • Witness

These are familiar terms in the Christian vocabulary, but many don’t know the original background and theological importance of these words, and how they can be life-giving for Christian faith and life today. To access the deep meaning of these words in the theological vocabulary of the New Testament writers, Gupta discusses each word within a key text and interprets it in three contexts:

  • Canonical—how the New Testament is grounded in the Old
  • Literary—the meaning developed within the key text
  • Historical—the Jewish and Greco-Roman world of the first century

For those first hearers of the gospel who chose to follow Jesus, these words were the words of life, and they can be once again for Jesus-followers in the modern world. With Gupta’s skilled guidance, readers will find their engagement with the New Testament revitalized as they begin to understand how these inspiring ancient words can still be captivating, thought-provoking, and worldview-shaping words for real life today.
