The Epistles are written correspondence (often letters), generally addressed to specific communities of early Christians. They provide advice about community life, theological teachings, ethical practices, and how to live as followers of Jesus. Paul wrote most of the letters included in the New Testament. Each letter follows a similar flow: greeting, sender identified, body of the letter, greetings to specific people, closing, and peace wish.
