1. Jewish tradition holds that \"Moses received the Torah from Sinai,\" yet there is also an ancient tradition that the Torah existed in heaven not only before God revealed it to Moses, but even before the world was created. The Septuagint rendered the Hebrew torah by the Greek nomos (\"law\"), probably in the sense of a living network of traditions and customs of a people. The designation of the Torah by nomos, and by its Latin successor lex (whence, \"the Law\"), has historically given rise to the misunderstanding that Torah means legalism. It was one of the very few real dogmas of rabbinic theology that the Torah is from heaven; i.e., the Torah in its entirety was revealed by God. According to biblical stories, Moses ascended into heaven to capture the Torah from the angels. In one of the oldest mishnaic statements it is taught that Torah is one of the three things by which the world is sustained. Eleazar ben Shammua said: \"Were it not for the Torah, heaven and earth would not continue to exist\".
