THE TENAK : BY: BISHOP DR.VERGHESE L.MATHAI

(The description about Torah, Tenak and Naviim by Respected Bishop Dr. Verghese Mathai will give some insight into the subjects.Thanks)
THE TENAK
The Tenak, in simple terms, is the Jewish Bible – that part of the Scripture the Jewish people recognize as their own Bible – the Old Testament or Covenant. Tenak is an acronym (a word formed from the initial letter of a name or names) for:
Torah – the First Five Books which we call The Law or the Pentateuch. In Arabic it is known as the thourath.
Naviim (Nabiyim) – The Nabis or Prophets is normally known as the Prophetic Books starting from Isaiah to Malachi of the Old Testament. It includes the so-called Major Prophets – Isaiah, Jeremiah, Lamentations of Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and Daniel, as well as the Minor Prophets – Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah, Micah, Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah, Haggai, Zechariah and Malachi. The classification into major and Minor is based on the bulk of the individual books and not on their importance or their superiority or inferiority
