Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets (Matt. 5:17; cf. 7:12)

Torah and Nebiim are two traditional categories of material in Israel's canon. The first consists of what are presently the first five books of the Old Testament. The second has two subdivisions: the Former Prophets, including Joshua, Judges, I and II Samuel, and I and II Kings; and the Latter Prophets, including Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and the twelve prophetic books that presently conclude the Old Testament. Other books now part of the Old Testament are included in the Ketubim, "Writings." Certain of these may not have been officially canonized until A.D. 100, long after Jesus' statement.
