On the 5th Day of Christmas

my true love gave to me
fiiiiive gooooolden riiiiiings!

four colly birds
three French hens
two turtle doves
and a partridge in a pear tree!
In our journey through the song, the five golden rings stand for the first five books of the Old Testament, known as the Torah or the Pentateuch. Did you know that the early Jews had to memorize the entire five books? Before it was available to every individual in print, audio, or as an iPhone app it was shared orally and memorized. The first five books are Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy. They present the early history of the faith, the old covenant, and the whole reason we need Jesus! This download includes five fun versions of the golden ring. Hopefully one of these rings will work for your layout. :) You can grab it on 4shared or Box.
