Testament is for example referring to the New Testament. It is also at times called the Greek Testament. The other names of the New Testament are Greek Scriptures and New Covenant. All the names of the New Testament are the literal translations, all meaning the Christian Bible. There were various authors who wrote in the New Testament. Eventually all the texts written by various authors were collected and made into a single volume along the period of several centuries. The central element of the New Testament is Christianity. The modern western culture has been shaped on the lines of the New Testament. Altogether the New Testament consists of twenty seven works.

Depending how it is used in a sentence, it has different meanings.
A testiment during a trial can mean the given word to prove something is how we said it was, even though it can be a lie.
When a person dies and leaves a will, testiment is used in the reading of the will as being the desire and word of the now deceased.
I am sure there are others but I am not that smart so I will be checking back here to learn more.

Testament? I guess it's a REPORT...of things that took place.
I heard a preacher compare it with the word "covenant" before.
Like being a promise. 
I'll have to check my dictionary.
I'm not so sure they're the same thing.

Testament definition

occurs twelve times in the New Testament (Heb. 9:15, etc.) as the rendering of the Gr. Diatheke, which is twenty times rendered "covenant" in the Authorized Version, and always so in the Revised Version. The Vulgate translates incorrectly by testamentum, whence the names "Old" and "New Testament," by which we now designate the two sections into which the Bible is divided. (See BIBLE.)

Something that serves as tangible proof or evidence: The spacious plan of the city is a testament to the foresight of its founders.

A statement of belief; a credo: My political testament.

Law A written document providing for the disposition of a person's property after death; a will.

Testament Bible Either of the two main divisions of the Bible.

Archaic A covenant between humans and God.
