Ben Bag Bag would say: Delve and delve into it, for all is in it; see with it; grow old and worn in it; do not budge from it, for there is nothing better.  (Pirkei Avos 5:26)

Such was said about the Torah. There is so much that can be learned from the Tanach and contrary to the title of this feature – facts of the Tanach are not trivial!
