This chapter examines the concept of New Testament theology. It contends that if the primary task of NT theology is determined by its character as New Testament theology, then its main subject-matter has to be the principal themes which both unite the Testaments as testament and distinguish the NT from the OT as new. These themes are fourfold: God, the people of God, the saving purpose of God, and the people's response.

Keywords: New Testament theology; God; people of God; saving purpose of God
