What is the Importance of Pentateuch in the Old Testament?
Pentateuch simply means "five books", in Greek. The Pentateuch (which Jews call the Torah) includes the books of Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy. These books are very important to the Christian faith. In the Pentateuch is the story of the creation of the worlds and mankind. We also learn about the fall of mankind - a very important doctrine of Christianity. In the Pentateuch we learn about the nature and character of God and how He has dealt with mankind throughout history. The Pentateuch tells us about the call of Abraham and God's covenants with Abraham. In the Pentateuch is recorded the founding of the nation of Israel and God's covenant and dealings with them.
