Seen on the web: “Torah” – “Tanakh” – “Word of God” – What’s the difference?

“I would not use the word “Torah” for the entire Word of God because that could cause some confusion.

The Bible itself refers to the first five books as the “Torah of Moses” and the whole Jewish Old Testament is called Tanakh meaning Torah (Law), Nevaiim (Prophets) and Kethuvim (Writings).

This then is reflected by Christ in the New Testament when He said “These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses (Torah), and in the prophets (Nevaiim), and in the psalms (Kethuvim), concerning me.” (Luke 24:44).”
