Books of the Old Testament

The Old Testament begins with God’s creation of the universe and continues by describing the mighty acts of God in and through His people.  The 39 books of the Old Testament were written over a period of several centuries.

The first five books of the Old Testament are referred to as the Books of the Law or the Pentateuch, a Greek word meaning “five volumed.”  The Hebrew term for this collection is Torah, meaning “instruction, teaching, or doctrine.”
