In the TaNaK, the “t” stands for Torah and includes the same first five books as our English Bibles. The “n” stands for the Hebrew word for prophets, nevi’im. It includes Isaiah through Malachi and begins with Joshua through Kings. The “k” stands for the Hebrew word for the writings, ketuvim. It is similar to the poetry section of our English Bibles, but it includes quite a few other books (Ruth and Daniel, for example). Jesus and other Jewish authors allude to a three-part design of the Hebrew Scriptures. The “seams” of the TaNaK, or the beginning and ending of the major sections, include repeated words and phrases that show that the TaNaK is telling one overarching story of Israel’s need for a prophet like Moses and Elijah who will bring life to all around him. The Hebrew Bible is meditation literature (Joshua 1, Psalm 1) that is designed to foster: Daily reading and pondering about the meaning of these texts Future hope in the promised prophet who will herald the messianic Kingdom A covenantal way of life that creates a counter-culture to the prevailing world systems
