What is the Jewish bible called? Is it the same as the old testiment, in the chirstian bible?

  • The “Jewish Bible” is the Tanakh. Its essentially composed of the books of the OT. The first five books of the OT and the Tanakh (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy) are called the Torah and are the central books to Judaism. The Tanakh is important but definitely second to the Torah.

  • The Jewish Binle is called the Tanakh, and it includes

    Torah (תורה), meaning “teaching” or “law,” includes the Five Books of Moses. The printed form of the Torah is called “the Chumash” (חומש), meaning “five-part.” The Torah is also known by its Greek name, “the Pentateuch,” which similarly means “five scrolls.”

    Nevi’im (נביאים), meaning “Prophets.” This division includes the books which, as a whole, cover the chronological era from the entrance of the Israelites into the Land until the Babylonian captivity of Judah (the “period of prophecy”). However, they exclude Chronicles, which covers the same period. The Nevi’im are often divided into the Earlier Prophets, which are generally historical, and the Later Prophets, which contain more exhortational prophecies.

    Ketuvim (כתובים), meaning “Writings,” are sometimes also known by the Greek title “Hagiographa.” These encompass all the remaining books, and include the Five Scrolls. They are sometimes also divided into such categories as the “wisdom books” of Job, Ecclesiastes, and Proverbs, the “poetry books” of Psalms, Lamentations and Song of Solomon, and the “historical books” of Ezra-Nehemiah and Chronicles.

    The books of the Jewish Bible are, in this order:

    Genesis

    Exodus

    Leviticus

    Numbers

    Deuteronomy

    Joshua

    Judges

    Ruth

    1 Samuel

    2 Samuel

    1 Kings

    2 Kings

    1 Chronicles

    2 Chronicles

    Ezra

    Nehemiah

    Esther

    Job

    Psalms

    Proverbs

    Ecclesiastes

    Song of Solomon

    Isaiah

    The Old Testament is the first section of the two-part Christian Biblical canon.

    The exact canon of the Old Testament differs between the various branches of Christianity. All include the books of the Hebrew Bible, while many traditions also recognise several deuterocanonical books.

    The Protestant Old Testament is, for the most part, identical with the Hebrew Bible; the differences are minor, dealing only with the arrangement and number of the books. For example, while the Hebrew Bible considers Kings to be a unified text, and Ezra and Nehemiah as a single book, the Protestant Old Testament divides each of these into two books.

    The differences between the Hebrew Bible and other versions of the Old Testament such as the Samaritan Pentateuch, the Syriac, Latin, Greek and other canons, are greater. Many of these canons include whole books and additional sections of books that the others do not. The translations of various words from the original Hebrew may also give rise to significant differences of interpretation.

    Nevi’im (נביאים), meaning “Prophets.” This division includes the books which, as a whole, cover the chronological era from the entrance of the Israelites into the Land until the Babylonian captivity of Judah

    Put it all together and you get the Tanakh

  • The first five books are called the Torah, which literally means ‘law’. The whole thing (including the Prophets) is called the Tanakh, and it is the same as the OT.

  • The first 5 books are called “The Torah”, which means the Law, but there are also The Writings, and The Prophets.

  • the torah. it is much the same as the first 5 books of the christian bible, but it’s in hebrew.
