The New Testament relates the ministry of Jesus and his early followers, and also includes several epistles (letters) written by Saint Paul and others. It was written in Greek. It includes a variety of Hebrew, Aramaic, Greek and Roman names.
There are many different English translations of the Bible. The lists of names presented here are based on the Revised English Bible, which drew from the "best available texts of both Testaments", as well as on two great reference works, Nave's Topical Bible and Easton's Bible Dictionary. Though the greater part of the lists is composed of personal names, a select few place names and personal titles have been included, especially ones which have come into currency as personal names in modern times. Names from the Apocrypha have been excluded.
