The Pentateuch is the first five books of the Bible: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy. Think of it as the Bible’s starting point, like the origin story. It covers creation, early history, laws, and the journey of the Israelites. Genesis talks about the beginning of everything, Exodus is about escaping slavery, Leviticus has rules, Numbers counts people, and Deuteronomy has reminders and speeches. It’s like the foundation for understanding the rest of the Bible.
