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).”

Q: Your views on the Bible?

I’m not at all a religious person, but I just want to see your views on the Bible. Do you believe everything in it? Think it’s nonsense? Another thing I want to know is, if they didn’t keep records, how did people write the Bible accurately? 

A: The Bible is the inerrant, written Word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit and accurately set down by the sacred writers, infallibly expressing precisely what God intended.

Moses wrote the first five books of the Old Testament. The remaining OT books were a product of tradition, and were not set down in writing until around 400 BC.

Recent archaeological discoveries of ancient documents and sites have proved the biblical accounts to be highly reliable, even down to some very precise and minute details.

The one thing that sets the Bible apart from all other writings is the prophecies that are contained within.

And since the OT was written some 1500 to 250 years before Jesus Christ, one has to respect the accuracy of a book that found its’ prophetic fulfillment in one obscure but obviously very special, itinerant Jewish carpenter from the town of Nazareth, with literally hundreds of ancient biblical prophecies being perfectly fulfilled by Christ, during his 34 short years.

Most significant are those that came to pass during the last three days of his human life on earth.

The New Testament of the Bible points out many of these prophetic fulfillments, explains their eternal significance and their practical application, using several different languages and precise detail that has been painstakingly set to writing, confirmed through authentic world history, and faithfully handed down by means of authentic Catholic Church tradition.

The fact that today, we can go back and verify the authenticity of all those fulfilled prophecies also bolsters the Bible’s claim to being divinely inspired.

And since about a third of all Bible prophecies have yet to be fulfilled, dealing with future, end times events and personalities, the “best” is probably yet to come.

I’m not merely cutting and pasting here. I’ve done the research and made all the compilations and comparisons. You can too.

I was also pretty skeptical when I began the work, but I’m not anymore.
