The Patriarchs ~ Week 9
Good Morning Princesses,
This week we take a bit of an off-road tour to take a look at the following:
Hmm... words we don't say or even converse about daily. However, this week we will have a special guest visit the GO! Bible Study session to discuss these three words. In fact, the dialogue will span the Patriarchs and much more! Recognizing that the GO! Monday Reports are read by many who are not able to attend the local bible study sessions, I thought it would be helpful if we took a journey down three distinct mile markers as they are aligned to our study and provide a backdrop to the Old Testament. Are you ready? Buckle up, let's go!
1. TaNaKh ~ /tä-ˈnäḵ/
The Hebrew Bible, comprised of 24 books, also known as Mikra (“what is read”) or TaNaKh is an acronym referring to the traditional Jewish division of the Bible Torah (Teaching), Nevi’im (Prophets), and Ketuvim (Writings), is the founding document of the people of Israel, describing its origins, history, and visions of a just society. (My Jewish Learning, "Hebrew Bible: Torah, Prophets, and Writings").
Torah ~ refers to the "Five Books of Moses": Genesis (“Origins”)/Bereishit), Exodus (“The Road Out”)/Shemot), Leviticus (“Laws of the Levites”)/Vayikra), Numbers (“The Census”)/Bamidbar), and Deuteronomy (“Second Law”)/Devarim).
Nevi'im ~ refers to the following books: the former prophets (the books of Joshua, Judges, Samuel, and Kings) and the latter prophets (the books of Isaiah, Jeremiah, and Ezekiel, along with 12 minor prophets).
2. Torah ~ /ˈtôrə,tôˈrä,ˈtōrə/
Hebrew meaning "Instruction"; "Teaching"; "Law"
The Torah is the first five books in the 24 books of the Hebrew Bible.
3. Pentateuch ~ \ ˈpen-tə-ˌtük/
Five books in the TaNaKh. In Greek, the Pentateuch (in Hebrew called the Torah) includes the books of Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy.
For an overview of the first five books, take a look at the Bible Project's "How to Read the Bible: The Law". We'll pick back up next week with Genesis Chapters 46-48. Happy watching!
Oh, princesses of faith...remember
Prayer “empowers and ‘charges up’ every other piece so they can be used effectively against the enemy. Without prayer… your armor, cannot, will not, be infused with the power that only God’s-Spirit can give."
