Scripture – writings that are acknowledged to be sacred by a particular religious tradition Canon – the set of books that are determined to be authoritative as scripture and are recognized as such by a religious institution Sola Scriptura – “only scripture”; this idea was emphasized by Martin Luther during the Protestant Reformation. It counteracts the notion that the institution of the church, or tradition, are the primary sources from which the individual gains an understanding of God. Tanakh – a word for the Hebrew Bible. The consonants form an acronym (TNK), which stand for Torah, Nebiim, and Kethubim. Torah – means “law”; usually refers to the Penteteuch, but it has also been used to refer to the entire Hebrew Bible. Pentateuch – the first 5 books of the Bible: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy – the last book of the Penteteuch. It has its own source (D) according to the documentary hypothesis. Nebiim – means “prophets”; it is the second part of the Hebrew Bible. It contains narratives and poetry, and it makes up a large part of the Old Testament. Kethubim – means “writings.” This was the last set of scripture that was included in the Jewish canon. Council of Jamnia – following the destruction of the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem, rabbis (led by Yohahan ben Zakkai) came together to define what would be included in the Jewish canon. Synoptic Gospel – refers to the first three gospels (Matthew, Mark, and Luke). They are very similar to each other and it is believed that one of the texts may have been used to write the others.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
