It is a little easier to explain the difference between the Old Testament and Tanakh, or the Hebrew Bible, since both include the Torah, or first five books (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus and Deuteronomy). The Protestant Old Testament and the Tanakh, or Hebrew Bible, contain exactly the same library of books.
Moreover, is the book of Hebrews an epistle?
The Epistle to the Hebrews of the Christian Bible is one of the New Testament books whose canonicity was disputed. Traditionally, Paul the Apostle was thought to be the author. However, since the third century this has been questioned, and the consensus among most modern scholars is that the author is unknown.
What is the difference between the old and new testament?
While the Bible is a unified book, there are differences between the Old Testament and the New Testament. In many ways, they are complementary. In the Old Testament, God's dealings are mainly with His chosen people, the Jews; in the New Testament, God's dealings are mainly with His church (Matthew 16:18).
How was the Old Testament written?
(The Bible's Old Testament is thought to have been first written down in an ancient form of Hebrew.) Until now, many scholars have held that the Hebrew Bible originated in the 6th century B.C., because Hebrew writing was thought to stretch back no further.
