The Torah (Overview)



The Torah which can be translated as Instruction or Law is made up of Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy. It was formed by various authors over centuries. See The Documentary Hypothesis Quick Guide. It tells the story from Creation to the death of Moses before the Hebrews arrive in the Promised Land.

Here is the January quick guide for the Torah. Here is the quiz.

John - I'm not reading these very carefully, because, well, I've obviously studied a lot of this recently and it makes my mind hurt. But I just wanted to say that this is excellent. Well done.
