The Torah is the Hebrew name for the first five books of the Bible found in the Old Testament that were written by Moses -- Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy. It is one of the sacred books along with the Nevi'im ("Prophets") and the Ketuvim ("Writings") that are used by Jews as instruction for building up their faith. It also refers to the Law of God contained within those books which He gave through Moses to His people Israel as part of the Old Covenant made by God with Israel.
In the Left Behind series, Dr. Tsion Ben-Judah studied the Torah as well as other Jewish religious books and the New Testament when he was commissioned to research who would actually be the Messiah for the Jews.
