    As New Testament Christians in the New Covenant, which commands or moral principles are obligatory and would apply regardless of the covenants because they are universal morals that transcend the Mosaic Law? God’s laws—from both the Old Testament and New Testament—are not just arbitrary expressions of His power. Then take 3 x 9 = 27, the number of books in the New Testament. Then 39 +27 = 66, the number of books in the Bible! David Brackett sent in a better method for remembering the number of books in the Bible: If you count the letters of Old Testament .

    Books of the New Testament include the four gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, as well as the account of the early Church in the Book of Acts.

    Rather, as Paul states repeatedly in the New Testament, the Law served as a “guardian”, or teacher, to show Israel how sinful they were in relation to a holy God. Or, put in a different way, the Law served as a “mirror”, of sorts, to reflect the sin of mankind i.e. our anger, bitterness, gossip, lust, pride, the list seems endless. What is the New Testament teaching on “law and grace”? Is it one or the other—law versus grace—or both—law and grace? This is a subject of great controversy, leaving many confused. This need not be. Here is the plain Bible teaching! The meaning of grace in the New Testament has nothing to do with abolishing God’s laws.
