So, how much do you know about Torah? If you’re a Bible-believing Christian, you might be surprised to discover that you actually already believe in keeping Torah to some degree. Indeed, the Torah (often translated as “Law” in English) is found in the first five books of the Bible and is comprised of God’s instructions to His people. These instructions include commandments such as take care of the poor and love your enemies; don’t lie, steal, commit adultery, etc. Most Christians would agree with those commandments.

The following is a list of five reasons Christians should stop ignoring these parts of Scripture.
