"In the beginning when God Created the earth, the earth was a formless void and darkness covered the face of the deep..."

"For six days shall work be done; but the seventh day is a sabbath of complete rest…"

"Hear O Israel; the Lord is our God, the Lord alone. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might."

"On the seventh day you shall march around the city seven times, the priest blowing the trumpets."

THE NEW TESTAMENT

"After so many experiences there came a time of crisis for the people of Israel when God wanted to bring them at last to a mature faith. And Jesus came for that purpose. The most transcendental experience in all of history was fulfilled in him. Jesus - his efforts to save the Jewish people from imminent destruction, his rejection, his death, and then his resurrection - this was the final word of God.

The person of Jesus gave rise to the preaching of the apostles and to the first communities of Christ's Church. The written testimonies of these beginnings, approved by responsible members of the church [at the council of Nicaea in 325 AD], form the New Testament; the books of the New Covenant, where the book cannot but help with the work of the Holy Spirit within us instilling the total, unique truth which becomes certainty within us."
