A modern printing of the Tanakh in Hebrew and English.

The Tanakh is a compilation of Jewish scriptures that would later be used as the source for the various Christian old testaments. The word "Tanakh" is derived from three main sources used to make the compilation: the Torah, Nevi'im, and Ketuvim. While the number of books that make up the Tanakh is widely agree upon, as with all ancient manuscripts, there is no one official version of the Tanakh because various Jewish sects use different and conflicting sources for each book.
