The Pentateuch

Finally finished reading the Pentateuch, aka Torah.  They are first 5 books of the Bible.  I have to be honest, it was pretty brutal.  Some parts of it are interesting, but you can so so tell it was written by ignorant, ancient people with morals that would make a serial killer blush.  I am truly shocked how incredibly repetitive it really is.  Books 2 to 5 are just all the same thing, with slight rewording.  Numbers is almost impossible to read and the most boring text I have ever read.
