The pentateuch represents the first five books of the Bible (Penta meaning "five", and teuch meaning "book" in the Greek). The term Pentateuch comes to us from the the ancient Greek translation of the Scriptures called the Septuagint via the Latin Vulgate (International Standard Bible Encyclopedia, vol. 3, p. 740). It is also referred to as "Torah", which in Hebrew means teaching, instruction, or even law.
