In the Garden of Eden no reference is made to a stenographer! The several accounts of “beginnings”--creation, sin (Adam, Eve, Cain), the flood and Noah, the Tower of Babel, etc. in Genesis 1-11) were written much later as God inspired an explanation of creation, sin, and cultural diversity. These chapters are theological, not geological, nor anthropological, nor even historical as we understand history. Moses could not have written Deuteronomy because most of it is written in the “third person” and it contains his obituary.
Chapter 4 The Abrahamic religions view on the Afterlife. Picture 43380769 The 3 main Abrahamic religions are Islam, Judaism and Christianity. Why they are called the Abrahamic religions is because they all share the patriarch Abraham in their lineage, having said that his role differ in the 3 religions, but Christianity and Judaism are very similar, or if not the same..( in regards to the old testament.). Picture 16224835 Above is a picture of Father Abraham receiving instructions from God’s angels… 1. Judaism Picture 14986202 Judaism is the foundational faith that led to both Christianity and Islam.
John 1:1 States that “[I]n the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. This statement is one of a few that Trinitarians believe to prove their belief in the idea of the Trinity. The Trinity is a belief that God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit are all one being. The dogmatic “doctrine” of the trinity is not taught in the bible, there are only a few passages that were wrongly interpreted that these claims are based from. The bible itself disproves the theory that the three entities, God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit are three separate beings, operating together to bring the will of God to the world.
What can we learn about Moses relationship between God and the Hebrews? How does the story told here create a sense of purpose and the and identity for the Hebrews? How does Isaiah modify or change any of these images? What is the role of the prophets by this time? We can learn that Moses and the Hebrews had extreme faith in his God Yahweh.
The ancient Hebrew Scriptures describe His functionalities as Ruach Hakodesh (Holy Spirit) and Ha-Mashiach (Messiah). We know nothing about God except what are in these manifestations. We are in error when we give these functionalities distinctive independent personality and individuality as hypostases or as parts of a trinity, each with total independence. They are not three different Gods, but very simply and neatly Elohim’s functions in Creation and Redemption. In Creation the Word said, “Let there be Light.” And the Spirit “moved upon the waters.” And creation was accomplished.
Judaism and Christianity can be comparable religions, but essentially they believe that there is only one God. Judaism mainly stress on having only one God and the unity of it. Christianity can be sometimes misunderstood, as Christians believe that the one God is the Holy Trinity. Therefore they both have a similarity of having one god. Both two religions believe that this God is the beginning and cause of all that came to earth.
Judaism doesn't even make the top ten religions, as there is around fourteen million, and Jews make up a majority of the population in only one country: Israel.2 However, Judaism is one of the oldest religions still existing today and sparked one of the largest religious revolutions at the time. A central religious belief of Judaism is the covenant, a special relationship with the one and only God, by which the Jews became God's chosen people. The covenant, which is symbolized by circumcision, is an agreement of the Jews to follow God's Ten Commandments. As reward, the Jewish people would possess the Holy Land and be blessed with prosperity and victory over their enemies. The Ten Commandments, believed to have been given to the prophet Moses by God, play a fundamental role in both Judaism and Christianity.
Forgiveness is closely allied to this spiritual component of its nature and thus transcends the narrowly religious or denominational beliefs of individual religions. Thus, forgiveness is of profound spiritual and moral relevance to all, regardless of whether they hold more specifically religious beliefs. “Forgiveness is a matter of a strong-willed change of heart, the greatest blessing in human being, the successful result of an active endeavor to replace bad thoughts with good, bitterness, and anger with compassion and affection” (North, 1998; Scott Peck, 1992). Similarly, conversion to the newness of the Gospel entails a daily encounter with the Lord in prayer. “Jesus Christ is the son of God, our Savior, our high priest who brings us mercy, grace and help in all our needs (Hebrew 4:14-16)”.
Comparing and Contrasting Christianity and Hinduism Around 2.3 billion people practice Christianity worldwide (Wraight 12). They mainly practice in North America, South America and Europe (World-faiths.com). In the U.S. around 224 million people practice Christianity (Pewforum.org).

He began sole worship of Aten or the Sun Disk.109 Amenhotep attempted further change by changing his own name to Akhenaten, or the Servant of Aten.1110 Through all of these cultures, we can see some differences and some similarities. Egyptian culture did almost change monotheism but soon regained polytheistic beliefs. The Hebrew people started off worshiping only one god, and have remained that way, while the Mesopotamian cultures, containing thousands of gods, were by far the most heavily polytheistic religion maybe of all
After reading the U.S Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, and Thomas Jefferson’s Letter to the Danbury Baptists in 1802. I realized that all three of these documents have common signers and Thomas Jefferson as the creator of these documents. God also plays a major role in these documents. As mentioned in the Declaration of Independence “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness (Declaration, 2016, p. 1)”. This document, which was created, first in order to assure our countries stability states that our country has been built on God, and it united the thirteen colonies.
Below write 200 words stating and outlining 3 KEY POINTS gained from the lecture material and explain why you consider them key points. My first main point is how Jesus is presented as the fulfillment of the promise by Yahweh to sent the Messiah, ‘The one who saves’, in the New Testament. The Gospel texts describe who Jesus is or what he did and are linked to Old Testament texts. This important as it associates and further bring together all parts of the Bible as the New Testament is written in light on the Old Testament. Also the version of Jesus presented in the Synoptic Gospels is different from the Gospel of John.
This is one of the oldest religions on earth and Hebrews, Jews, and Israelites are all refer to the same people, the nation which sprang from Abraham through Isaac and Jacob. A nation promised and chosen by God in the Old Testament. Hebrews or Jews, till now are monotheistic which is worshipping one single God and it is forbidden to worship other gods. It is their believe also not to marry non-Jews. Jews worship in a temple or synagogue and their spiritual leaders are called rabbis.
