When interpreting the Tanakh, Karaites strive to adhere to the plain or most obvious meaning (peshat) of the text; this is not necessarily the literal meaning, but rather the meaning that would have been naturally understood by the ancient Israelites when the books of the Tanakh were first written.
By contrast, Rabbinic Judaism relies on the legal rulings of the Sanhedrin as they are codified in the Midrash, Talmud, and other sources to indicate the authentic meaning of the Torah.

Jim Inhofe, Alt Tulsa and other thinking Tulsa citizens have a duty to point out a few basic facts.
The term "Torah" is used in the general sense to include both Rabbinic Judaism's written law and Oral Law, serving to encompass the entire spectrum of authoritative Jewish religious teachings throughout history, including the Mishnah, the Talmud, the Midrash and more, and the inaccurate rendering of "Torah" as "Law" The earliest name for the first part of the Bible seems to have been "The Torah of Moses". Other early titles were "The Book of Moses" (Ezra ; Neh. In Hebrew, the five books of the Torah are identified by the incipits in each book; Genesis begins with the "primeval history" (Genesis 1–11), the story of the world's beginnings and the descent from Adam.
This title, however, is found neither in the Torah itself, nor in the works of the pre-Exilic literary prophets. This is followed by the story of the three patriarchs (Abraham, Isaac and Jacob), Joseph (Genesis 12–50) and the four matriarchs (Sarah, Rebekah, Leah and Rachel).
Karaites maintain that all of the divine commandments handed down to Moses by God were recorded in the written Torah without additional Oral Law or explanation.
As a result, Karaite Jews do not accept as binding the written collections of the oral tradition in the Midrash or Talmud.
