You Asked for It: The Torah vs. The Bible

“What’s the difference between the Torah and the Bible?” The Torah can have a range of meanings, but it is most widely understood as the law of God that was revealed to Moses. It is recorded in the first five books of the Hebrew scriptures, also known as the Pentateuch. The definition of the word…
