Comments about the  Torah

      Torah means Law and instruction. The Torah are often called the Five Books of Moses. Evidently he only edited the first book, and someone finished the last after his death. But most likely he did write most of the later four books. Genesis was probably not written by Moses, it was edited by him. He received many stories written way before his time, and edited them into this book. Many of the books might have been written by Enoch originally.

       The Torah are the first five books of the standard bible. They lay the foundation. They teach us how we came to be. They teach us how to act. They teach us who Yahweh is and about His plan for this world.

     I believe they have to be taken at face value for what they claim to be: a true and accurate history of the earth, and the world. If the Garden of Eden and seven days of creation are just allegories, or fancy stories, to warm me up for the rest of the book, then I have no reason to read the scripture at all. If I can't believe the first chapter, I won't believe any of them.

     And so I judge the book by it's claims. Psalm 11:3 "If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?" By saying Genesis is not literal they destroy the very foundation of creation, and so, now the christian thinks he does not have to obey the law.

     And so before we get to Genesis I present many other books of the same time. They all say essentially the same thing, each filling in different details. We have Jubilees, Yasher, and the Cave of Treasures. You should read them all!
