Collection of religious texts central to Christianity and Judaism.
The two collections vary between the two religions in that the Hebrew Bible represents the first of two parts in the Christian. The first part is referred to as the Old Testament by Christians, while the second part is called New Testament.
The word "Bible" comes from the Greek, "biblia", meaning "books". The Greek took this word from the Phoenician city of Byblos, which in the 1st millennium BCE was the main trading port for papyrus.
The canonical Hebrew Bible consists of 24 books, while the one in use today has 39 books, as prophetical books have been added to both the Christian Old Testament and the Hebrew Bible.
