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.
