The Books of the TaNaKh
The Hebrew Bible is called the TaNaKh.
The letters T-N-K are an acronym for the three parts of the Bible of Judaism:
- Torah (tor-AH) -- The Law, also called the Pentateuch (Greek for "five books")
- Nebiim ( neh-veh-EEM) -- The Prophets
- Ketubim (keh-tu-VEEM) -- The Writings
Listed below are the books of the Tanakh. Three main "headers" show the three divisions of the book spoken of above. Additionally the Prophets section is subdivided into the Former Prophets and the Latter Prophets. The Latter Prophets also include "The Twelve" (Minor Prophets).
