NEW TESTAMENT

What is striking about the New Testament is the number of books that are written or co-authored by Paul and the distinct difference in tone with that of the Old Testament. The dating of various New Testament books is uncertain, although most are thought to have been produced in the first century AD. The ‘climate’ of the New Testament, of course, is that of the land of Israel under Roman rule.
