“The Tanakh, also called the Mikra or Hebrew Bible, is the canonical collection of Jewish texts, which is also a textual source for the Christian Old Testament,” according to Wikipedia. “These texts are composed mainly in Biblical Hebrew, with some passages in Biblical Aramaic (in the Books of Daniel, Ezra and a few others). The traditional Hebrew text is known as the Masoretic Text. The Tanakh consists of twenty-four books.

“Tanakh is an acronym of the first Hebrew letter of each of the Masoretic Text's three traditional subdivisions: Torah (Teaching, also known as the Five Books of Moses), Nevi'im (Prophets) and Ketuvim (Writings) — hence TaNaKh. The name Mikra, meaning ‘that which is read’, is another Hebrew word for the Tanakh. The books of the Tanakh were passed on by each generation and, according to rabbinic tradition were accompanied by an oral tradition, called the Oral Torah.”

This group will feature selections from the Tanakh. Because my commercial images with verses from what is also called the Old Testament have to be from public-domain sources, I will use those from the King James Bible or the World English Bible®. My apologies to those who would rather see quotes from other sources.
