Textbook has different order of commands: login password password-value
and also password password-value login
Does the order matter?

If you mean something like this:
line vty 0 15 logging synchronous exec-timeout 15 0 password <PASSWORD> login transport input telnet !
or something like this:
line vty 0 15 logging synchronous login exec-timeout 15 0 password <PASSWORD> transport input telnet !
then, no, it doesn't matter. Most commands in IOS can be entered in any order within the context. If you are in the particular mode (interface, line, router, etc.) then you can usually enter commands in any order for that mode. There are a few exceptions.
