“Tanach” the usual Hebrew collective term for the Old Testament, is composed of the initial letters of the words Torah (“Pentateuch”). Nevi’im (“Prophets”), and Ketuvim (“Hagiographa”). This three-fold division of the Bible is commonly found in the Talmud (e.g., Shab. 88a; Sanh. 101a; Kid. 49a; KM 21a), and arguments are often supported by quoting individual verses from each of the sections (e.g., Meg.31a; Mak. 10b).
