i stand corrected
Yes, the Torah is the first books of the OT. The complete OT, however, is called the Tanakh.
genesis is the first book of the old testament. torah is the name of the complete set.
Actually it would be the Tanakh. The Torah, being only the first five books of the OT. The Koran, however, says the the Tanakh and the New Testament are corrupted.
also, rather then being dictated by humans who followed the son of the god, the old testament, supposedly, was dictated by god himself; directly to moses. primary sources are always more trustworthy :p
to my understanding christians accept the original testament. according to the pope (for catholics at least) the jewish people have their own covenant with god. the rest have an updated (imo lax religion, not only the silly fabric rules but prayer down from 3x a day to once a week). so clearly both christians and jews agree to the validity of the old testament.
as for muslims, they respect all the prophets of all 3 sets of books, thus they acknowledge the validity of both the old and new testament in addition to the quran
... i guess the common agreement is in the torah. torah takes the win :p
the talmud is an accessory book. the bible of the jews is called the torah.
If I remember right there is a difference between the Bible, the Koran and the Talmud.
They may claim the same God, but which of their Books are the truth?
