"Grace" is not even a concept in the Tanach.

"Chesed" (lovingkindness) is, atonement (leChaper) is, forgiveness 
is.  I have never ever heard the word "grace" used in any Torah or 
Jewish philosophy class, or book.... I can't think of a Hebrew word 
in the Torah that would translate to "grace".


I reacted to a theological treatise, so now I push Peter's question
back to David Fenton, what words are used? I know that the concept is
taught in the New Testament that we are free from the penalty of the
law, but that is not contained in one word, as Peter so correctly
pointed out. What is the Hebrew antecedent? Are we again dealing with
a phrase instead of a single word? Where is it found in Tanakh?
