OLD TESTAMENT OVERVIEW
The Hebrew word Torah conventionally translated 'law' is a much broader idea than its English translation conveys. Torah derives from the verb yarah to 'teach' or 'instruct', so we would be wiser to render Torah as 'instruction' rather than 'law'. Torah refers to the five books of Moses which are known in Hebrew as Chameesha Choomshey Torah.
Bible History is about exploring the eyewitness accounts recorded in the Old and New Testaments of the Bible and comparing them with the history of ancient people and civilizations revealed by the spade of the archaeologist. Are you curious about the past, it's people, customs and culture? Then you would probably appreciate those who's curiosity drove them across the earth without the conveniences of modern travel, to dig up the empires buried within the earth to reveal the mysteries they contain.
The Major Prophets is a grouping of books in the Christian Old Testament, but not occurring in the Hebrew Bible. These books are centred on a prophet, traditionally regarded as the author of the respective book. The term "major" refers only to their length, in distinction to the Twelve Minor Prophets, whose books are much shorter and grouped together as a single book in the Hebrew Bible.
A Prophet is an inspired teacher, interpreter or proclaimer of the will of God. An individual who is regarded as being in divine contact with God and is said to speak on that behalf, serving as an intermediary with humanity by delivering messages or teachings from the supernatural God to other people.
The Minor Prophets or Twelve Prophets (Aramaic: תרי עשר, Trei Asar, "Twelve"), occasionally Book of the Twelve, is the last book of the Nevi'im, the second main division of the Jewish Tanakh. The collection is broken up to form twelve individual books in the Christian Old Testament, one for each of the prophets. The terms "minor prophets" and "twelve prophets" can also refer to the twelve traditional authors of these works.
