The Bible is divided into two major divisions, the Old and New Testaments. What is the meaning most often associated with the word “testament” today? Is it not someone’s “Last Will and Testament,” which is a legal document that tells what someone has left to others upon the occasion of his or her death.
The Bible, as suggested by the Apostle Peter in 1 Peter 1:2-5, may be seen as the “Last Will and Testament” of Jesus Christ. Its two Testaments, especially its New Testament, tells us all about the incorruptible inheritance Christ has left for us in Heaven as a result of His death for us upon the cross of Calvary.
