The three great western religions---- Judaism, Islam and Christianity, share similarities and differences. Even though they have the common roots and common elements, differences emerged when these three religion grew. However, Judaism, Islam and Christianity stand out as the main religions in the world and their believes cover all over the continents, influence billions of believers in the world. Judaism, the most historical religion in all three, was founded by Abraham—the first and the greatest prophet of the God. Judaism is a monotheistic religion, which Jews only believe in one God.
CHRISTIANITY VS. JUDAISM Christianity and Judaism are religions that are each very unique. Although they both have plenty of differences, they also have similarities. In fact they probably have more in common than some of the other major religions in the world, such as Hinduism, Buddhism, and Islam. Although both Christians and Jews believe God to be their creator and controller; Judaism has no founder, as opposed to Christianity whose founder was Jesus Christ. 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.
So the trunk of these three religions is Abraham and the descendants or branches of the trunk are his two sons Isaac and Ishmael. Both Jews and Christians believe their religion emerged from Isaac because their founders Moses and Jesus are decedents of Isaac. Muslims believe though that their roots are traced back to Abraham’s other son Ishmael. And that Muhammad their founder is a decedent of Ishmael and created Islam. How are the three major holy books of the monotheistic faiths both
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.
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.
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.
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.
Again, what similarities would affect your choice? Let us examine these three monotheistic religions which are based on faith in God. Judaism believes there is one God who cannot be made up of parts. To attempt to divide God's oneness is seen as a pagan throwback to many gods. Islam embraces an immaterial, invisible God -- one
Jesus Christ is an important part of a religion called Christianity and Aphrodite is a part of a religion called Wicca. Christianity and Wicca contain many differences and similarities, like the origin, the Gods or Goddesses, the good or bad in people, their view of the afterlife, rituals, and guidelines. Although Wicca was popularized in the 1960s, by Gerald Gardner, that does not mean it did not exist before that era. Archaeologists have found evidence that shows that Wicca has been practiced for
One major difference is that with Christianity they view God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit as the trinity, whereas with Judaism they view God as the only Supreme Being. The Jewish faith does not believe the way that Christians believe that all beings have been given the sins of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. Both religions believe that heaven and hell exist. Both religions also believe that having ethical behavior by following the commandments and the divine commandments will lead to an eternal life with God in heaven (Robinson,
