Did/Do the Jews believe in a doctrine similar to Sola Scriptura


I have no idea…anyone?


Hope this helps





Tanakh (Hebrew: תנ״ך‎) (also Tanach, IPA: [taˈnax] or [təˈnax], or Tenak) is an acronym that identifies the Hebrew Bible. The acronym is based on the initial Hebrew letters of each of the text’s three parts:

  1. Torah תורה meaning “Instruction.” It is also called the Chumash חומש, meaning “the five” or “the five books of Moses.” In Greek, it is called the Pentateuch. The Torah is often referred to as the law of the Jewish people.

  2. Nevi’im נביאים, meaning “Prophets.” This term is associated with anything to do with the prophets.

  3. Ketuvim כתובים, meaning “Writings.” The Greek word being “Hagiographa.”

The **Written Law **is another name for the Torah. The **Oral Law is a legal commentary **on the Torah, explaining how its commandments are to be carried out.
