In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He [Jesus Christ -Yeshua] was in the beginning with God.


The Law comprises the first five books of the Holy Bible. They are known as the Five Books of Moses. In Judaism, the Hebrew Scriptures of the Tanakh comprise twenty-four books. The three divisions in the Tanakh are the Torah (The Law), Nevi’im (The Prophets), and Ketuvim (The Writings). The Torah and the first five books of the Bible are known collectively as the Pentateuch.

The first five books are divided into four major periods of events from creation to c. 1406 BC. The first major period begins with creation and ends with the destructive flood that resulted from man’s unbridled sinfulness. God also reveals the first prophecy of the coming Messiah - Jesus Christ, who would bring salvation and restoration to all who accept His free gift. The second major period represents a new beginning from Noah through the time of the Patriarchs of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Joseph. God's first covenant, the Abrahamic Covenant, consists of three promises made to Abraham: the nation of Israel from the descendants of Jacob; a great land; and blessings. The third major period covers the enslavement of Israel in the land of Egypt and Israel’s exodus out of Egypt. The fourth major period culminates with the giving of God’s law through Moses and the wandering of Israel in the desert for 40 years before entering into the land promised to them by God. The land and nation of Israel is the center of strife in the world today. But God will save and preserve Jerusalem and the nation of Israel forever.
