    Why does is seem that the words Testament and Covenant causes confussion for christians?

    Why does some bibles use the word Testament for Covenant and vis versa? It seem to me that this creates a great deal of misunderstanding for many christians. Do these two words have the same meaning or not?

    Not really but they are used  interchangibly by some.   That is why we must always check the application of terms against the original word to see what it actually means in that particular application.  You cannot trust any translation.
    There are quite a few words that you have to see what the original word referred to to understand the actual usage.   Like, judging (several kinds), love ( there are over 25 different kinds of love) come to mind.    Some are even purposely mistranslated to say what the translator wants to say
    Actual words used and context are always necessary to proper understanding.

      celafoe- I agree. Context in which words in the bible are used will most often provide the meaning. But not everyone understand even the context. Thanks--- By the way, I read your Hub "How to study srcipture to find Truth. Great Hub."

    I'm a Christian and I don't really find them confusing, either. I like your reply, celafoe.

    People assume a word means something and they don't check into it to see if they are correct. Testament and covenant are not the same thing although the Christian religion (and in English, but not in Bible) uses them as the same word.

    Covenant in Hebrew is Beriyt and means an agreement that both sides are to keep or NONE have to.

    A testament is a document or some writings about events that the author has sworn to be true.
