Atonement
The meaning of the word is simply at-one-ment; i.e., the state of being at one or being reconciled, so that atonement is reconciliation. Thus, it is used to denote the effect that flows from the death of Jesus Christ.
Covenant
(Hebrew, berit) In biblical use, a covenant differed from a contract in two ways. First, a covenant had no termination date, whereas a contract always did. Second, a covenant applied to the whole of a person, whereas a contract involved only a part, especially a skill, possessed by a person.
Mount Sinai
The name of the mountain district, which was reached by the Israelites in the third month after the Exodus. In many instances "Sinai" and "Horeb" are used synonymously; where a distinction appears, the mountain itself is Sinai and the neighboring wilderness area bears the wider designation Horeb. Traditional Mt. Sinai has been associated with Mt. Musa at the apex of the Sinai Peninsula.
Pentateuch
A name derived from Greek for the first five books of the Old Testament. It is the first of three divisions of the Jewish Scriptures and is also called the Law or the Torah or the Books of Moses.
Pharisees
(Hebrew "separated ones") - A Jewish religious party. The name occurs in Josephus and in rabbinic sources, as well as in the New Testament. Unlike the Sadducees, who tried to apply the Mosaic Law precisely as it was given, the Pharisees allowed some interpretation of it to make it more applicable to different situations, and they regarded these oral interpretations on the same level of importance as the Law itself.
Sabbath
The seventh day of the week observed from Friday evening to Saturday evening as a day of rest and worship by Jews and some Christians.
Torah
(Hebrew, "instruction," "law," "The law") - Torah basically means "teaching," whether it is the wise woman instructing her son or God instructing Israel. Through the law, God showed His interest in all aspects of human life, which is to be lived under His direction and care. Torah, defined as "law," refers to the first five books of the Old Testament (Pentateuch); but more broadly it may refer to the whole Old Testament.
