Tanakh
Tanak Tanak, Tanakh Tanakh, n. [From the initial (Hebrew) letters of Torah, Nevi'im, and Kethubim.] a term used among Jews for the Hebrew Bible; the Old Testament. [Also spelled {Tanach}.]

Note: Although Christians use the term ``Old Testament'', this term implies the superseding force of the ``New Testament'', not recognized as revelation by the Jewish faith. [PJC]

The Hebrew Bible is divided into three parts: (1) The {Torah}, ``Law,'' or Pentateuch. (2) The Prophets . . . (3) The Kethubim, or the ``Writings,'' generally termed {Hagiographa}. --C. H. H. Wright. [Webster 1913 Suppl.]
