Intro toGod, 3, p. 3 Bare'syth = In the Beginning....Is there a primer somewhere that explains where the Hebrew names for the 1st 5 books of scripture came from? I tried to look up Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy in Strong's Concordance to figure it out, but they are not there.

Don't take my word for it, Look it up.

Yes...I know these Hebrew names...but where did they come from? Are they attached to the Hebrew manuscripts?

Hermine Dow,

The Hebrew names for the books are basically the first word or phrase of that book:

Pardon the Hebrew cut and paste is backwards.

Correction, I was in a hurry and highlighted the wrong word in Ba'Mid'dabar = In The Wilderness (Numbers). In my defense the phrase did have “dabar” in it.

Ba'Mid'dabar = In The Wilderness (Numbers)
