The Epistles are letters written to the fledgling churches and individual believers in the earliest days of Christianity. The Apostle Paul wrote the first 13 of these letters, each addressing a specific situation or problem.

In terms of volume, Paul's writings constitute about one-fourth of the entire New Testament. The New Testament: 27 books in 5 categories. The New Testament books fall into five general categories: the Gospels, the single book of Acts, Paul’s letters to churches, Paul’s letters to church leaders, and a collection of letters sent out (mostly) to large groups of people.

These books, written by Christians in the early second century CE, were considered authoritative in some Christian communities. Some of these writings, in fact, were believed to be as authoritative as the Gospels or Paul’s letters.

Another important collection of early Christian writings, including epistles, apocalypses, and Gospels, was.

In Letters from the Pillar Apostles, Darian Lockett has produced a detailed and thorough presentation of the Catholic epistles as a collection.
