Summary The Hebrew Bible, known to Jews as the Tanakh and to Christians as the Old Testament, is the basis of our tradition of monotheism as well as the main avenue by which the ethics and teachings of the Hebrew spirit entered Western civilization. Eminent scholar Lawrence H. Schiffman discusses how that collection came into being and how it was passed down and interpreted through the ages.
