I'm looking to read the Abrahamic trilogy (Judaism, Christian, islam) and am wondering if there are any differences between the Jewish tanakh and the old testament in the king james holy Bible.

On paper they appear to be nearly identical, is that the case?

There's bound to be some overlap with the Tanakh and the Old T.
Jesus often quoted from the Old T, but showed how we should interpret it in a new enlightened way, and people quickly cottoned on..:)-

"The law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ" (John 1:17)
"Through Jesus we are saved, and not through Moses" (Acts 13:39)
"The covenant of which Jesus is mediator is superior to the old one" (Hebrews 8:6)

"Jesus saved you from the empty way of life handed you by your forefathers" (1 Peter 1:18 )

Longer answer: In the 3rd century BC, the Old Testament was translated into Greek by 72 Jewish scholars for inclusion in the library at Alexandria. This is the translation that was used in the time of Christ, and all quotes in the New Testament given by Christ are from that text, known as the Septuagint.
