This article discusses the concept of New Testament (NT) theology. NT is the primary witness to the beginnings of Christian theology, and remains a primary source for Christian theology in all ages. Indeed, it can be fairly argued that the NT writings define and provide the subject matter for Christian theology, on which all subsequent Christian theologizing is ultimately commentary. And even if some would regard that last comment as something of an overstatement, it nevertheless remains an inescapable fact that the NT writings provide the literary basis for all Christian theology.
