These books were written over a period of approximately fifty years. The book of James was the earliest, penned between AD 46 and 49 and Revelation, written by the apostle John, was the last to be recorded in AD 95 or 96. Most of these letters were written after the apostle Paul’s death, and they carried on the Christian epistolary tradition. They were written during the years of heavy Roman persecution of the Christian population. The content of some of these letters reflects the increasingly hostile environment and the spread and strength of false teachings. Finally, there could be no better capstone to the New Testament – and, in fact, the entire Bible – than the book of Revelation. In it, God records His last words about the final days and the ultimate victory of His son, the Lamb of God and the Lion of Judah.
