CHRISTIAN SCRIPTURES


TRUTH’S

STORY:

“The Bible” (“tà biblía“) is Koine Greek for, “the books” (τὰ βιβλία)[1][a], and it is a collection of sacred texts or “scriptures”.

MOSES’ FIVE (5) BOOKS:


Christian scholars usually refer to the first five books of the “Old Testament” (a.k.a. the Hebrew Bible) as the ‘Pentateuch’ (Greekπεντάτευχος, pentáteuchos, translates to English as ‘five scrolls’). This is a term first used in the Hellenistic Judaism of Alexandria.[13]

 

HISTORICAL BOOKS:


The historical books are a division in the Christian Old Testament, corresponding to the Former Prophets of the Hebrew Nevi’im (and two of the ungrouped books of Ketuvim).  Together with the Books of Ruth and Esther which are both found in the “Five Megillot“. It would seem the order of books are intended to confuse earnest searchers. 

 

 

WISDOM & POETRY BOOKS:


Wisdom literature is a writing genre common in the ancient Middle East. It consists of statements by sages and wise men that offer teachings about divinity and virtue. Although this genre uses techniques of traditional oral story-telling, it was disseminated in written form.

Song of Solomon

 

MAJOR PROPHET BOOKS:


The Major Prophet are “major” because they aren’t a part of the next group of 12… I think? I know that one of them (Isaiah) was found (complete) in the Dead Sea Scrolls – from Before Christ. That’s the same Isaiah he read from! These books are centered on a prophet, traditionally regarded as the author of the respective book.

Lamentations

 

MINOR PROPHET BOOKS:


The Minor Prophets were called the “Twelve Prophets” in the Jewish Bible, and occasionally “Book of the Twelve”.  This group finish up the “Prophets” section, which is the second main division of the Jewish Scriptures named “Tanakh”. The collection is broken up to form twelve individual books in the Christian Old Testament, one for each of the prophets. I think that’s why these guys are minor, and the others are major… because these were originally a part of a group and the others were always called by their name.

 

APOCRYPHA BOOKS:


Although the term apocrypha had been in use since the 5th century, it was in Luther’s Bible of 1534 that the Apocrypha was first published as a separate section between the Old and New Testament(s).

Prayer of Manasses

Psalm 151

 

 



NEW TESTAMENT BOOKS:


Jesus, the Chosen-One; lived, taught and was killed by those with power. They murdered him in an effort to save their illusion of control. But… He came back to life again! He took ownership of Death, and then let his followers watch him fly out of this dimension.
