dreamstime 2943195 300Q: What is this "Torah" thing mentioned quite a bit on your site?

A: Torah is the Hebrew word that is often translated as "Law" in Scripture.

That word is also used to refer to the "Law of Moses" (G-d's Law given at Mt. Sinai).  It is also used to refer to the first five books of the Bible (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy). While it can mean "law", the Hebrew word Torah is more accurately translated as "teaching" or "instruction".  It comes from a Hebrew root word that means "to hit the mark" as in archery.

These instructions from G-d are often neglected by the followers of Jesus today. This website and ministry are focused on delving deeper into G-d’s Word to consider the relevance and impact of His instructions on the lives of believers and how we can be obedient to G-d as a result of His saving grace.

If you have questions about the relevance of G-d's Law in the life of believers please see Working Out My Salvation.
