The Torah (or the Books of the Law) are the first five books of the Bible. The first book, Genesis, tells about the creation of the universe and God choosing a person (Abraham) to be the father of his people. The next four books (Exodus to Deuteronomy) describe God saving his people from slavery in Egypt and giving them the law by which they were to live, including the Ten Commandments. The word Torah itself actually means "teaching" or "instruction" or "law" in Hebrew.

The five books are as follows:
