    As far as I know, the Torah consists of the books of the Old Testament.

    Whether the Bible has them in the proper order or not, I would suggest consulting a Rabbi.

    pst: plural and contrary 'scriptures' aren't inspired of God

    Only the sing-u-lar 'script-u-are' is what's inspired of God

    What saith the (allegory-ic) script-u-are in Galatians 4?

    It allegorically saith: cast out the bondwoman and her son.

    It meaneth cast out the law and result of law: sin and death.
