Moses was born in Egypt and grew up in the palace as an Egyptian prince. However, at the age of 40, he realized that he was meant to lead his people out of Egypt and back to their homeland of Israel (Canaan). The Bible tells us that Moses could not speak well and he had an unusual appearance (Numbers 12:3). He also lacked confidence when it came to his ability to do what God wanted him to do (Exodus 3:11). But through the power of God, Moses was able to lead God’s people out of bondage and back into their own land.
The first book, Genesis
Many find it easiest to start at the beginning. There’s a lot to cover in Genesis, which covers creation and Noah’s Ark as well as Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and more. The bottom line is that if you try starting with Genesis, you will quickly realize how little you know about Torah. This might be discouraging at first but is actually a great sign—it means there’s a lot to learn! Try recording your thoughts and questions in your journal or on paper throughout your learning process so that when it comes time for study later on, you have an overview of where your knowledge gaps are. This will help you prioritize what area(s) need further study.
The second book, Exodus
It contains 40 chapters. The first nine chapters describe how God punished Egypt for persecuting Israel with terrible plagues, such as lice, frogs, and locusts. After suffering for many years in Egypt, God finally led them out under their leader Moses. They were able to cross into freedom after a powerful sea serpent parted the waters of an enormous body of water for them.
The third book, Leviticus
It’s a book that’s easy to skim—and many people do just that. So, what do you need to know from Leviticus? For starters, it’s important to note how Leviticus relates (or doesn’t relate) with other books in Scripture. The author of Exodus and Numbers obviously knew about Leviticus since they quote from it and refer back to it. But notice how little connection there is between Exodus, Leviticus, and Deuteronomy.
The fourth book, Numbers
The fourth book is Numbers. It takes place as Israel travels through the desert on their way to Canaan, during what scholars call the wilderness period. The book covers a variety of topics, including a census conducted by Moses (Numbers 1:1), spies sent into Canaan (Numbers 13), an Israelite rebellion against God (Numbers 14), and battle preparations against Midian and Amalek (Numbers 31). Although it does not focus on seven laws or commandments like other books in The Torah, it is often considered part of The Torah’s book of law because it includes some laws and teachings that are foundational for later parts of The Torah. It also provides valuable background information about historical events before they occur.
The fifth book, Deuteronomy
One purpose is to summarize and repeat everything stated in previous books. According to Jewish tradition, God dictates a copy of Deuteronomy every generation. In Judaism, passages from Deuteronomy are recited daily and nightly during prayers; three times a day during prayer services on Shabbat; twice daily, as part of an afternoon prayer service known as Mussaf (Hebrew: addition); and once a week, as part of Saturday evening services. The Haggadah, which is traditionally read on Passover evening, contains references from all seven books.
The sixth book, Joshua
The book of Joshua, which is written in a more narrative style than other books of Moses, helps us understand how God moved people and nations around so that all things might be done according to His purpose. And now here is a quick overview on how we can apply these life lessons from the book
The seventh book, Judges
The book covers approximately 400 years, from around 1200 BC to about 1000 BC. It follows on from Joshua, and continues with a story that reflects how Israel went from being ruled by one strong leader (Moses) to two regional powers (the tribes of Judah and Ephraim), who were eventually replaced by a number of small kingdoms led by morally flawed individuals, as described in Chapter 16: Every man did that which was right in his own eyes. The people had become very sinful and were no longer faithful in following God. This led God's anger against them until he eventually sent judges to lead his people again, but they often fell into sin themselves.
The Books of Moses are one of our most important sources when it comes to learning about God and how He wants us to live. They tell us how we got here, why we are here, and what will happen if we don't do things His way. The books that make up what's known as The Bible or The Word have four different categories: law, history, poetry, and prophecy.
