    Question Question from BBC article:Sefer Torah and the Book of Moses

    Hello.

    I have a question from following BBC article.
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-12191104

    The question part is 3rd paragraph from the bottom.

    "Though technology has rendered it more or less absurd to feel gratitude over owning a book, there remain psychological advantages in rarity. We can revere the care that goes into making a Jewish Sefer Torah, the sacred scroll of the book of Moses, a copy of which will take a single scribe a year and a half to write out by hand, on a parchment made from the hide of a ceremonially slaughtered goat which has been soaked for nine days. "

    I can't figure out if "a Jewish Sefer Torah" and " the sacred scroll of the book of Moses" mean the same documents,
    or "The book of Moses" is one of "Sefer Torah"
    And "The book of Moses" means "The five books of Moses"?

    Your assistance will be highly appreciated.

    Best regards,
