The Torah is the first five books of the Hebrew and Christian Bible. Torah means to teach. What does the Torah teach? How does the Torah teach? Scholars agree the Bible evolved from an oral tradition to its written form. This book examines the messages of the Book of Genesis, the first book of the Bible, based on what those messages would have sounded like to an audience in the original oral tradition. The episodes of Creation and the 21 separate stories of the iconic figure of Abraham are recast under the microscope of the prevailing Near Eastern context of their birth. The reader is invited to experience the vivid world of antiquity and for the first time hear The Greatest Story Never Told.
