Secondly, they are the chosen people of God, which means they live beyond the rest of mankind. Thirdly, they are always the witness of God. However, the history of Jews is full of tears, because they found it difficult to live at peace with the rest of mankind. Christianity, the religion emerged from Judaism, is known as a new religion by that time, Jesus Christ was a Jew, but he created Christianity by adding supernumerary laws to the Jewish law based on mercy not only on justice—the forgiveness of the original sin and the promise of eternal life in paradise for Christians who are willing to be the witness of Jesus. Islam, the youngest religion in all three, was founded by Muhammad.
Both religions founded from the Judaism belief in one God. Both Christianity and Islam agree that humans are the ruling species upon the earth. Both believers of Islam and Christianity believe that they are the children of Abraham. Whereas similarities in foundational beliefs and origin exist, many differences divide the two nations of believers. In the 1,300 years after the life of Muhammad, the relationships between Christianity and Islam have remained less than harmonious.
In the literature, Judaism begins with the Pentateuch or the first five books of Moses, the Torah-interpretations of the law, and the Mishnah were writings that gave rise to Judaism today. Historically, the Judaic religion arose from the founder which was Abraham, the Hebrew leader and patriach who gave birth to the Hebrew race and then to Moses, who created the Mosaic law that was the foundation of the Jewish religion. Other influences has been the Babylonian captivity where the Jews were carried away and they had to create the synagogue to replace the temple. Islam is similar in that the Muslim claimed that the message of Allah was prophesied through the Old Testament by the prophets from Ishmael, who taught the teachings of the One True God, Allah. This was handed down by different prophets especially prophets like Jesus.
Christianity and Judaism are both monotheistic religion that were founded in the Middle East. These two faiths share common history and traditions, a respect for the Bible, a conviction that there is one God, a belief in prophets and divine revelation, and a holy city in Jerusalem, but they also differ significantly in matters of belief and practice from their understanding of God to the identity of the prophets and Jesus and the authority of various scriptures. Christianity believes in the holy trinity: god the father, god the son, and god the holy spirit whereas Judaism believes in one god: Yahweh. 2. Identify one or two points of similarity or difference regarding the Jewish and Christian conceptions of human nature.
In Christianity it is believed that Jesus Christ was the savior to all humanity and was sent to Earth by his father (God) to pay for the sins of all mankind. In Judaism on the other hand, Jesus was merely a prophet. Both Christianity and Judaism were established in Israel. Christianity was founded around 30 AD in contrast to Judaism which started around 1000 BC. Although a few sacred readings and the form that followers pray are similar in both religions they are also slightly different.
Judaism is a monotheism which means that they believe in a single, all-powerful God. This God was the creator of Heaven and Earth, which is different from being the Lord of Heaven and Earth. “The first people to insist upon monotheism, the Jews, throughout their history, found this to be their greatest source of strength.” “It is often suggested that Akhenaten’s religion and Zoroastrianism have influenced the development of monotheism in Judaism.” The second unique aspect of Judaism is the covenant. The covenant was a pact between the Jews and God. The Jews vowed to worship only God and to obey his laws.
With the roots of Christianity found in Judaism, with Abraham as the founder of religions, who encouraged the belief in one God and also brought the people to the promised land. Not to forget Moses who freed the Israelites from the rule of Egypt and entered them into a covenant with God. This makes them have important similarities. They both believe that Jesus Christ or Yeshua was crucified, the belief in the existence in one God, although Christianity has the Holy Trinity, they both believe the Messiah is coming and that there is an after life. We should try to communicate better with others in this vast world of ours.
Just like the Christians believe in the Bible and the Jews believe in Torah, the Koran is the sacred book of Islam. The Koran is the holy and sacred book of over 300 million Muslims around the world. The Koran was first written in Arabic soon after the death of the prophet Mohammed in about
Christian Zionism Christians have had an important part in supporting the Jewish people's restoration to "Zion." Within the millenarian tradition the conviction that the Jews would return to Palestine became an important dogma. As pre-millennialism gained ground during the nineteenth century, forming the core of the early fundamentalist movement, adherents not only believed that the Jewish people would return, but also vocally supported the right of the Jews to be restored to their former homeland. Even before Theodor Herzl's Der Judenstaat fundamentalist - evangelical William E Blackstone advocated the reestablishment of a Jewish state and circulated a petition urging the United States to return the land of Palestine to the Jewish people.
However, there are three ways to view God; this is called the Holy Trinity. It represents God as God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. The Holy Trinity is a mystery of the Christian religion; however there are explanations for why it is the way it is. According to Father Abraam D. Sleman, Christians say “God the Father,” because He is the father of Jesus Christ and he is our Father. Explained earlier, God chose Mary to be the mother of Jesus.
