The word Torah is Hebrew. It means direction, teaching, and/or instruction. In general, the Torah is the first 5 books of the Bible: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy. Torah is older than the world. Originally, the Torah was a collection of fragments of writing then they were put together as a cohesive book. Then it was broken up into 5 books. The modern grouping of books didn't exist during Moses' time. It wasn't until many generations after the last stroke was made by Moses, that it was sectioned off into the current format.
