Jesus referred to the Hebrew manuscripts as the Law, the Proph... and 27 books found in the The New Testament is a collection of 27 books, all written in Greek within the first century A.D. Twenty three of these books were written by the Apostles of Jesus Christ, two were written by Dr. Luke a Christian medical doctor who traveled with the Apostle Paul, and two books were written by James ... More. It is our view that these books were written between 1446 BC and 96 AD, representing a time span of about 1,500 years, by the hands of about 40 different authors. The time frame and the number of authors can be debated, but the books named or selected within the canon of 66 books are closed and is non-negotiable within the Protestant Church since the 16th century. Some may argue for an earlier start time of the writings or plus or minus one author. But in the end, the Scriptures are viewed as God’s revelation revealed to humanity by God Himself.
