Jews and Christians believe that Moses wrote the Torah. Scriptural evidence supports this view.  According to the texts of the Hebrew Bible, the Torah that Moses wrote is referred to by several phrases: Sefer ha-Torah, Sefer Moshe, Torat Moshe, Sefer torat Moshe, and torat Moshe avdi. This class works through each of these, establishing that per the Hebrew Bible’s texts, Moses did, in fact, write the Torah, but what did THAT Torah consist of? What is the Torah that Moses wrote? Is it the Pentateuch – the five books traditionally ascribed to Moses (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy)?
