WHY TORAH

Richard Boyd

The Torah is recognized as the first five books of the Bible: It is Moses who was the author of these books. They are as follows Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy; Moses penned the first five books by receiving direct revelation from God and experiencing a significant part of his life in Egypt. It's even possible that he may also have used reports that were already in existence in his time.


The fact rests in the accuracy of what Moses recorded. The biblical inspiration stems from God-inspiring Moses to record precisely what had transpired. Moses received information in helping us understand the importance of the Torah and why it is necessary to study these foundational teachings.


We know Jesus and the early Apostles studied and understood its importance in their lives. Jesus said, "Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I have not come to destroy, but to fulfill " Matthew 5:1 Hence Christ prohibited His disciples from believing that He came to dismiss the teachings of the Torah.
