Slide 2 - Other Jewish Holy Texts
Hebrew Bible – three sections of the Bible are used by the Jews which are the sections Christians consider as the “Old Testament”: Torah (5 Books of Moses) + Nevi’im (Prophets) + Ketuvim (Writings). Judaism recognizes the Christian “New Testament” as a historical and not religious text, the term “Old Testament” is not used.
