However, it is important to realize they were writing a religious document, not a scientific one. One of the most important aspects from the creation story is that of the Sabbath. Since the Sabbath is only one twenty-four hour period, then the other days of creation, in order to be harmonious, must also represent one twenty-four hour period. Coogan also refers elsewhere in the Bible where a “day” is a literal twenty-four hour period. Therefore, the literal day theory is consistent with the rest of scripture.
The Beliefs of Judaism and Christianity Throughout this paper we will be looking at two very different beliefs. What they believe and how they came to be. However, though they are very different, they are two beliefs that also have a lot to do with each other. Christianity, which came after Judaism, stemmed from Judaism and therefore looks fairly similar. “Judaism is the oldest of the monotheistic faiths.” It has survived more than four thousand years.
Jeffrey W. Moore Bibli_410_D01 May 5, 2012 ABRAHAMIC COVENANT CHART INTRODUCTION The institution of the Abrahamic Covenant is found in Genesis Chapters 12-50. Initially understood by Abram to be fulfilled in his time, it is soon established to be an everlasting covenant to God’s chosen people. The understanding of this covenant is unfolded through historical events under the providence of God’s control. Many times it seems to be unraveling by man’s lack of faith and obedience, only to later be revealed that God indeed is working “behind the scenes” to fulfill the promise. Three things are at the heart of the covenant, of which is a one sided promise; Land (Canaan), Blessings (to and through the Abrahamic lineage), and Descendants (of which all nations and people are blessed/cursed).
It also mentioned how mighty he is and talks about the redemption he brings upon children for the “sake of the Divine Name.” The Tanakh was split, half English, half Hebrew. There were songs on almost every page and during the service many of them were sung, with everyone joining in. I also noticed that there were rubric headings on the outside margins that indicated the current prayer’s place within the service. There was another reading that rabbi Jaime discussed. I do not remember it fully, or very detailed, but it was about the story of the relationship between Adonai and Abraham, up until the creation of the relationship between Adonai and the Jewish people.
The review of the book, “Knowing Jesus”; I will show how the author, Christopher J. H. Wright explains how understanding Jesus, one must understand the Old Testament and it’s narratives that paint a picture of the one who prophets elude to as the one who will fulfill the law, by delivering Israel. In doing so, using Israel as the prototype of God’s mission to provide salvation to them and to all nations. Prophetical narratives that paint pictures of one, who is destined to be the savior of God’s chosen people, Israel, and all mankind. The crescendo of events in the Old Testament that takes the reader through time, places, and events that provides credence to who Jesus really was and his purpose here on the earth. The relationship that Old
-Reform Judaism- Believe that moral and ethical teachings form the most important part of Judaism.

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.
Judaism xxxxxxxx Hum130 Athalene Mcnay February 6, 2009   The life and struggles of the Jewish people have not been unknown to the world, since religion began the Jewish culture and religion has been criticized, and chastised for their beliefs and practices much like many other religions. Jesus Christ was Hebrew by decent and in many ways practiced this religion. Does this mean Jesus wasn’t a Christian? There is a lot of debate over this some of which I will try to explain but the main focus will be Judaism now and in the past. I will compare and scrutinize the Jewish religion to Christianity and the fundamentals that make up both religions.

And these things they will do to you because they have not known the Father nor Me. But these things I have told you, that when the time comes, you may remember that I told you of them. -John 16:1-4 This aforementioned reference to the words of Christ is what Jesus told His disciples about coming religious persecution. Jesus did not specify that the persecution would come from Jews, or Muslims or “so called” Christians. The Lord warned that “Men would think that they were offering service for God”.
