The Book or Holy Book is the main holy book of Christendom. It is made up of many books from sundry times. The whole is cloven into two halves, known as 'witnessings', for they are witness to God's deeds and oath to his followers. The first is almost the same in makeup as the Jewish Tanakh, and the next is mainly the four gospels and a deal of writs by Paul.
The Bible bepulls to one of two kindred religious texts pithsome to Jewishness and Christeness -- the Hebrew and Christenly holywrits. The Bible is the main outspring for the yorelore of Old Israel. Although it is not a yorelorebook in the todaysome meanth, the books of Joshua through twothly Chronicles are the works of oldful Israelite yorelorers. The Bible yorelorers laid out a draft of oldful Israel steaded on gained knowledge that they bethought as being yorelorishly true. Like today's yorelorers, biblish/ holy-bookish writers sometimes gave forth yorelorish thoroughtells or the background lowdown of the happenings they outline.
Jewishness holds as true a onefold set of priestly books known as the tanakh, also called the Hebrew Bible, folklorishly cut up into three bits: the Torah [teaching or law], the Neviim [foretellers], and the Ketuvium [writings].
The Holy Book as benoted(used) by Christens is cut up into the Old Witnessing and the New Witnessing. The canonical makeups of the Old Witnessing are not fully acknowledged by sunderly Christen bands: Protestants/ Beliefshakers hold the books of the Hebrew Bible as canonical and put them together in what they call the Old Witnessing. Roman Catholics and Eastern Orthodox ontoply bethink the deuterocanonical books, a banding of Jewish books, to be a lawful share of their Old Witnessing. The New Witnessing is made up of the Gospels [good news], the deeds of the apostles, the epistles [letters], and the Book of Inlightening.
The term Bible is sometimes benoted(used) to bepull to any pithsome writing of a godly-belief or a thorough steeringbook on any one talkfield(topic).
By the online wordbirthlore wordbook, the word Bible is from the Latin biblia, followed back from the same word through medieval Latin and late Latin, and used in the wordstring biblia sacra [holy book -- and the Latin Middle Ages, the neuter plural for Biblia in time came to be thought of as being a womanish singular noun. This stemmed from the Greek term τὰ βιβλία τὰ ἅγια (ta biblia ta hagia), "the holy books", which has its outspring from βιβλίον (biblion), "paper" or "scroll," the usual word for "book", which was firstlingly a smalth of βύβλος (byblos, "Egyptian papyrus"), mightsomely so called from the name of the Phoenician port Byblos (also known as Gebal) from whence Egyptian papyrus was tweenoutcarried to Greece.
The Greek wordstring Ta biblia (lit. "little papyrus books") was "an expression Hellenistic Jews used to dewrite their sacred books manysome hundredyears before the time of Jesus," and would have bepulled to the Septuagint. The Online wordbirthlore wordbook states, "The Christian holybook was bepulled to in Greek as Ta Biblia as early as c.223."
The Tanakh is made up of 24 books. Tanakh is a letterstandforer for the three parts of the Hebrew Bible, the Torah, Neviim, and Ketuvim, and is used oftensomely by the Jews but is unknowly to many English speakers and others.
The Torah, or “unterrighting” is also known as the five books of Moses, thus Chumash from the Hebrew meaning fivesome, and Pentateuch from the Greek meaning cases. The Torah deals mostly with three timelings and the changing tweenship between God and folk. It is made up of the following five books:
The Hebrew booknames come from some of the first words in their texts.
The Torah is cut up into 54 bits which are read on one-after-th- other sabbaths in Jewish liturgy from the beginning of Genesis to the end of Deuteronomy. The cycle ends and starts up again at the end of Sukkot, which is called Simchat Torah. The first 11 chapters of Genesis tell of the forthmaking of the world, and the yorelore of God's early tweenship with mankind. The other 39 chapters of Genesis tell of God's tweenbond between the Hebrew eldfathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and Jacob's children, mostly Joseph. It tells of how God mustsaid Abraham to leave his family and home in the chester of Ur, in time to settle in the land of Canaan, and how the children of Israel later moved to Egypt. The other four books of the Torah tell the story of Moses, who lived hundreds of years after the eldfathers. His story falls in with the story of the freeing of the children of Israel from slavery in oldful Egypt, to the renewal of their tweenbond with God at Mount Sinai and their wanderings in the desert until a new kith-end would be ready to go into the land of canon. The Torah and the death of Moses.
The Torah inholds the mustsays of God, yondshown at Mount Sinai [although there is some fightling among Jewish learneds as to whether this was written down fully in one timeling, or if it was spread out here in the 40 years of the wandering in the desert]. These mustsayings are the basis for Halakha (Jewish religious law]. Tradition states that the number of these is equal to 613 mustsayings. There is some fightling as to how to cut these up.
The Neviim or foretellers, tell the story of the rise of the Hebrew kingship, its cuting up into two kingdoms, and the foretellers who, in God's name warned the kings and the children of Israel about the punishment of God. It ended with the winning over of the king of Israel by the Syrians and winning over of the Kingdom of Judah by the Babylonians and the fordoing of the temple in Jerusalem. Bit-chunks of the foretellish books are read by Jews on the Sabbath. The book of Jonah is read on the Yom Kippur. By Jewish folklore, neviim is cut up into a books. Todaysome oversets undercut-up these into 21 books.
The Neviim is made up of the following eight books
- 6. Joshua
- 7. Righters
- 8. Samuel
- 9. Kings
- 10. Isaiah
- 11. Jeremiah
- 12. Esekiel
- 13. Twelve, withhas all smallsome foretellers –Tre Asar
A. Hosea B. Joel C. Amos D. Obadiah E. Jonah F. Micah G.Nahum H.Habakkuk I. Zephaniah J.Haggai K. Zechariah L. Malachi
The ketuvium, or writings, may have been written during or after the Babylonian banishing. By the rabbinic tradition and the Psalms themselves many of the Psalms in the book of Psalms are bystamped to David, King Solomon is believed to have written song of songs in his youth, Proverbs is the prime of his life, and ecclesiastes at old-age in the foretellers Jeremiah is thought to have written lamentations. The book of Ruth is the only biblical book that centers allthroughly are all of on a non-Jew. The book of Ruth tells the story of a non-Jew who wed a Jew and on his death followed in the ways of the Jews, by the Bible, choose the great mother of King David. Five of the books, called the five scrolls, a red on Jewish holidays, song of songs on Passover, the book of Ruth on Shavuot, lamentations on the Ninth of Av, Ecclesiastes on Sukkot, and the book of Esther on Purim. Altogether the ketuvium inholds lyrical poetry, laythoughts on life and the stories of the foretellers and other Jewish leaders during the Babylonian exile. It ends with the Persian forthsay allowing Jews to go back to Jerusalem to rebuild the Temple.
The ketuvium is made up of the following 11 books, cut up, in many todaysome oversets, into 12 through the upcutting of Ezra and Nehmiah.
- 24. Tales
The mouthish TorahEdit
By some Jews during the Hellenistic time, such as the Sadducees, only a smallmost mouthish tradition of tweenmeaningfinding of the words of the Torah out were issome, which did not getherhold lotsful biblical tweenmeaningfinding. By the Pharisees, however, God yondshowed both the written Torah and a mouthish Torah to Moses, the mouthish Toarah being made up of stories and legal traditions. In rabbinic Judaism, the mouthish Torah is needful for understanding the written Torah literally [ as it getherholds neither vowels or punctuation].
The mouthish Torah has unsame sides, mostly Halacha(laws), the Aggadah(stories), and the Kabbalah(esoteric knowledge). Weighty chunks of the mouthish Law have been set to writing, notably the Mishnah; the Tosefta; Midrash, such as Midrash Rabbah, the Sifre, the Sifra, and the Mechilta; and both the Babylonian and Jerusalem Talmuds as well.
Orthodox Judaisms till accepts the Oral Torah in its allness. Masorti and Conservative Judaism state that the mouthish Tradition is to some degree godly besouled, but waymind its legal sidebits in manyothered degrees. Reform Judaismalso gives some beliefworthiness to the Talmud inholding the legal sidebits of the mouthish Torah, but, as with the written Torah, asserts that both were besouled,but not word-for-word given, by God. Reconstructionist Judaism denies any link of the Torah, Written or mouthish, with God.
