Torah is a Hebrew word that indicates reigning authority, such as a king using his decrees and rulings (Torah) to reign over his kingdom.
Because of this, the first five books of the bible are known as the Torah of God (given through Moses). The Torah tells us the history of creation, the fall of mankind, the faith of our patriarchs and the people that God welcomed under His reign.
His reign consists of roughly 613 commandments, decrees and statutes. Everything from loving your neighbor to caring for animals properly with love and respect.
The Torah also tells us of the covenants God makes to His followers. He declares that His covenants are promises that he will never break. This sets the stage for a God who would do anything for His people; including send His son to die on our behalf.
For this reason we continue to study, observe, and submit ourselves to the reign of our King through His Torah and the relationship with His son, Yeshua.
