The Torah in secular context is the Old Testament, either Masoretic or Septuagint texts, specifically the first five books of the bible.
Torah, however means Instructions. The Tanakh is the "Old Testament".
It's a play on words that has happened over generations.
Thank you. I thought as much. I just wanted to make sure I understood right.
