The semester has come to an end and it has been a wonderful time learning and exploring new key things that will stick with me throughout my lifetime and hopefully pass this on to my children in the future. I have decided that my research paper will be on the 5 Holy books. The reason why I felt like researching and writing a research paper on the 5 Holy books was because I was instantly attracted to it. When you first open and read the Bible, you are introduced to genesis very early within the book. This is a topic in class I enjoyed learning more about (besides the fact that I have some very strong points and interesting things to talk about I this paper) so I decided to stick with it.

Firstly, The Old Testament ( otherwise called the Jewish Tanakh ) is the initial 39 books in most Christian Bibles. The name represents the first guarantee with God (to the relatives of Abraham specifically) preceding the happening to Jesus Christ in the New Testament (or the new guarantee). The Old Testament contains the production of the universe, the historical backdrop of the patriarchs, the departure from Egypt, the development of Israel as a country, the consequent decay and fall of the country, the Prophets (who represented God), and the Wisdom Books.

Genesis talks about beginnings and is essential to the comprehension of whatever is left of the Bible. It is remarkably a book that talks about connections, featuring those among God and his creation, among God and mankind, and between individuals.

Exodus describes the history of the Israelites leaving Egypt after slavery. The book lays a foundational theology in which God reveals his name, his attributes, his redemption, his law and how he is to be worshiped.

Leviticus gets its name from the Septuagint (the pre-Christian Greek interpretation of the Old Testament) and signifies "concerning the Levites" (the ministers of Israel). It fills in as a manual of directions empowering the sacred King to set up his natural position of authority among the general population of his kingdom. It discloses how they are to be his heavenly individuals and to venerate him in a blessed way.

Numbers relates the narrative of Israel's voyage from Mount Sinai to the fields of Moab on the fringe of Canaan. The book recounts the mumbling and resistance of God's kin and of their consequent judgment.

Deuteronomy ("redundancy of the Law") fills in as a suggestion to God's kin about His agreement. The book is a "stop" before Joshua's triumph starts and a notice of what God required.

Genesis opens the Hebrew Bible with the tale of creation. God, a soul drifting over an unfilled, watery void, makes the world by talking into the haziness and calling into being light, sky, land, vegetation, and living animals throughout six days. Every day, he delays to articulate his works "great" (1:4). On the 6th day, God announces his expectation to make a being in his "own picture," and he makes mankind (1:26). He designs a man out of residue and structures a lady out of the man's rib. God puts the two individuals, Adam and Eve, in the unspoiled garden of Eden, urging them to reproduce and to appreciate the made the world completely, and restricting them to eat from the tree of the information of good and wickedness.

In the garden, Eve experiences a tricky snake who persuades her to eat the tree's taboo organic product, guaranteeing her that she won't endure in the event that she does as such. Eve imparts the organic product to Adam, and the two are quickly loaded up with disgrace and regret. While strolling in the garden, God finds their defiance. Subsequent to reviling the snake, he turns and reviles the couple. Eve, he says, will be reviled to endure difficult labor and should submit to her significant other's power.

Adam is reviled to drudge and till the fields for sustenance. The two are along these lines ousted from Eden. Conveyed into the world, Adam and Eve bring forth two children, Cain and Abel. Cain, an agriculturist, offers God a bit of his yields one day as a forfeit, just to discover that God is increasingly satisfied when Abel, a herder, presents God with the fattest segment of his runs. Irritated, Cain slaughters his sibling. God ousts Cain from his home to meander in the land east of Eden. Adam and Eve bring forth a third child, Seth. Through Seth and Cain, mankind starts to develop. Ten generations pass, and humankind becomes more-evil. God begins to lament his creation and makes plans to destroy humankind completely. However, one man, Noah, has earned God’s favor because of his blameless behavior. God speaks to Noah and promises to establish a special covenant with Noah and his family.

This then leads me to Exodus. I really did enjoy learning more
