Hebrew Nuggets, Lesson 26: ta·NAK (Part 2)

Articles 1 Comment

Part two of the two-part series on the ta·NAK.

Revised: 5-Oct.-2015

Hebrew NuggetsThe second letter of תַּנַ″ךְ (ta·NAK), the Hebrew acronym for the Jewish Bible, is נ (nun). We learned this letter, the symbol for the Hebrew “n” sound, in Lesson 13. Under the nun is a pa·TAḤ, one of the Hebrew vowel symbols representing the “a” sound, as in “father.”

The נ of the acronym תַּנַ″ך stands for נְבִיאִים (ne·vi·’IM, “Prophets”), referring to the second section of the Hebrew Scriptures. Remember that תַּנַ″ך is made up of the first letters of the Hebrew names for the Jewish Bible’s three divisions: תּוֹרָה (to·RAH, “Torah,” “Pentateuch”), נְבִיאִים (ne·vi·’IM, “Prophets”), and כְּתוּבִים (ke·tu·VIM, “Writings,” “Hagiographa”).
