What is Torah?


Today we’re start a journey that millions of
Hebrews and Christians have taken over the last 3000 years. We are going to study the Torah, which is
the first and oldest section of the original Hebrew Bible. Torah is a a word that few Christians have ever
heard of (although more and more have today, and I’m glad to see it), but most don’t have any idea what it actually is. The Torah is the Hebrew name for the first
5 books of our Bible: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy. We’re going to start with Genesis 1:1, and
go right on through Deuteronomy 34. We’re going to do something a little different,
though. We’re going to add back in the Jewishness that has been removed over
the last 1900 years. Why would we do that? Because it is within the Hebrew/Jewish culture and language that the Torah was created, and its ONLY within that context that we gain proper
understanding of what God is telling us. In fact, the entire Bible, OT and NT, was written by Hebrews, Hebrews who were entirely immersed in Hebrew culture. It was Moses, a Hebrew, who received the Torah from
God, on Mt. Sinai, around 1400 BC. Though we typically think of Moses receiving only the
2 stone tablets of the 10 commandments from God while leading the Israelites out of their bondage
in Egypt, in fact the 10 commandments were just a tiny piece of all that Moses received in those
several trips up and down that mountain. Moses actually received most of what is now the first 5 books
of what we call the OT. Torah is not a word you’re gonna find in your modern English
bibles. And, it’s a tragedy that that is the case. In general, where in the ancient texts the word
Torah appeared, today you’ll find the word “Law”; this is a sad and somewhat intentional mistranslation, and this first happened when the scriptures were translated to Greek, and was fostered
by the desire of the early Church to distance itself from the Jewish people. Torah does not mean “law”; in an overly
simplistic sense, it means “teaching”

  1. Yes he’s right the Bible was written by Hebrews. Black man. There were no white man in that region at that time. Sir can you teach what today’s history says about the true Hebrews people of that day and time. I’m sure everyone would love to learn about the true holy man that wrote the Bible

  2. TORAH IS THE COMMANDMENTS OF GOD… NOT LAW … IT IS THE TEACHINGS OF GOD not THE LAW OF MOSES… TALMUD ARE BIG DIFFERENCE OF TORAH. TALMUD IS ORAL TRADITION OF JEWISH LAW…that GIVE LAW TO THE JEWS BUT THE TORAH IS WRITTEN FROM GOD…. TO TEACH THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL about THE COMMANDMENTS OF GOD. TO keep the COMMANDMENTS OF God. WHY WE NEED TO KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS OF GOD??? HOW IMPORTANT IT IS?
    THE COMMANDMENT S OF GOD ARE THE KEY FOR REDEMPTION… TO RECEIVE ETERNAL LIFE.
    BUT GOD CHANGE HIS WAY FOR SALVATION… BECAUSE SURELY NO ONE CAN FOLLOW THE COMMANDMENTS OF GOD PERFECTLY… BECAUSE TEMPTATION IS EVERYWHERE. THAT IS WHY GOD SHOWS HIS MERCIFUL AND UNCONDITIONAL LOVE… HE ALLOWS HIMSELF TO BECAME MAN. IN ORDER TO TEACH US HIS COMMANDMENTS PERSONALLY. TO CLARIFY EVERYTHING… HIS COMMANDMENTS IS FOR THE SALVATIONS OF EVERY SOULS. HE WANTS US TO KNOW THAT ONLY GOD CAN SAVE US AND FORGIVE US FROM OUR SINS…. NO ONE IN THIS WORLD… ONLY GOD! And HIS NAME IS JESUS CHRIST! THE MESSIAH, THE ANOINTED ONE, THE LORD THE GIVER OF LIFE.
    JESUS is the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE… " I and the FATHER are ONE." (JOHN 10:30)

  3. All the translations must be rethought and redone in scientific approved way. Such a way that will preserve meaning and integrity of the book

  4. When you tell people not to mess with you karma always happens Never should of messed with me iam a Jewish women in prison Planet AMERICA

  5. Paul was a Gentile and the NT was written in Greek. But Jesus gave us 2 new commandments. love the lord your god with all your strength …. and the other love one another as I have loved you.

  6. Christians did not take the Torah seriously let alone go on a Torah journey. In Christianity, it's believed that, to repent, is necessary every day.

  7. I think the Torah is "truth" teachings and instructions limited to only what Moses had taught to all Hebrews/Jews with God Commandments, but there is no such another verses written about after the prophet Moses, but the bible has completed verses since Adam and Eve the "Genesis" the prophet Moses and God instructions to Moses are on the verses and up to the "revelation" happenings of the future proclaimed by John, a disciple of Jesus sent to him in a visions by God.

  8. The Torah switches between Aramaic and Hebrew sources. The original Torah would have 3 sections in each language before making the switch.

  9. Hear hear every statement you made is TRUE ,excellent teaching how oh how I wish there are half a dozen teachers like you ,may the Almighty Bless you .

  10. Almost, close. You almost got it.
    Ask any Rabbi and they will tell you that the Torah is a book of LAW and that it is ALIVE.
    The Rabbis may claim the Torah to be a 'living law' but still, as they did not specify the word Torah correctly they missed the mark.
    Ultimately,the Torah was written for two sets of people: the Royals, aka, biblical Israel, the Royal House of Jacob.
    And the children of Israel, the commoners who are the biblical Canaanites, the servant of servants.
    Torah, like a coin, has two faces, one side is the head the other is a tail.
    One side is reality the other side is fiction.
    Torah, apart from being a contract, a covenant, a book of law, is also a stage play.
    It is in the title: Torah = Show.
    A show for business.
    Torah is a stage play that is performed on the world stage as we speak.
    The only reason you believe something that has no evidence of ever happening in 1400BC is because you are naive and you chose to blindly follow those who give you nonsense.
