23 Judaism, Christianity, & Islam
24 Brief History Judaism- The Hebrew leader Abraham founded Judaism in Mesopotamia around 1300 B.C. Judaism is the oldest of the monotheistic faiths (religions with one God). Christianity - Founded by Jesus Christ, who was crucified around A.D. 33 in Palestine in the city of Jerusalem. It was after his death when his followers came to believe in him as the Christ, the Messiah. Islam - Founded in Arabia by Muhammad in A.D. 622.
25 Abraham s Genealogy BC All 3 Religions are linked by Abraham He is the patriarch of all 3 Islam-Quran HAGAR Judaism-Torah ABRAHAM SARAH Ishmael Isaac 12 Arabian Tribes Jacob/Israel Esau Muhammad (the last prophet) Quran and the Five Pillars of Islam Mecca (Muslims) 12 Tribes of Israel Other 10 2 Tribes - (Jews) of Judah Jesus Christ (son of God) tribes-(israelites) (Hebrews) The Hebrew Bible - Old Testament in the Christian Bible
26 Judaism Briefly Judaism is over 3000 years old and is the oldest of the world's monotheistic religions (religions with only one God). It's also the smallest, with only about 14 million (7th) followers around the world. Its holy city is Jerusalem.
27 Judaism Beliefs Jews believe that there is a single God (Yahweh) who not only created the universe, but with whom every Jew can have an individual and personal relationship. They await the Messiah, who will be an earthly king. They believe in heaven, but that God determines where they go after life on earth. Ten Commandments is the basic code of law.
28 Judaism Holy Book The most holy Jewish book is the Torah (the first five books of the Christian Bible). Others include Judaism's oral tradition, the written form of which is known as the Talmud. The Torah (scroll of teachings) contains the five books revealed to Moses by God on Mount Sinai. Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy
29 Judaism Place of Worship Jews worship in Synagogues or temples. Men and women usually sit separately. Worship is led by a Rabbi. Saturday (begins at sundown on Friday) is time for worship. Stamford Hill, London
30 The Temple According to the Bible, the First Temple for Jewish worship was built around BCE and destroyed by Babylonians in 586 BCE. The Jews were then sent out of Canaan, but returned after 50 years in exile. A Diaspora occurs when a group of people leave their homeland and move to many different locations separately. All of the world s Jewish communities today that do not live in present-day Israel are part of the Jewish Diaspora.
31 The Temple A new temple was finished 70 years later on the site of the First Temple, but was badly plundered by invading Romans about 54 BCE. King Herod, a Jew, ruled Judea for the Romans. Under him the second temple was rebuilt in 20 BCE. When the Romans attacked Jerusalem again in 70 CE(AD), they destroyed Herod s temple. Today, the single remaining temple wall, the Western Wall, is a place of prayer for Jewish pilgrims. Jews moved away from the land again, until the modern state of Israel was formed in the late 1940s.

34 Christianity Beliefs Christians believe that Jesus Christ was the Son of God God sent his Son to earth to save humanity from the consequences of its sins Jesus rose from the dead on the third day after his Crucifixion (the Resurrection) Christians believe that Jesus was the Messiah promised in the Old Testament Christians believe that there is only one God, but that this one God consists of 3 "persons -God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Ghost--Trinity Christians believe that God made the world.
35 Christianity Beliefs Christians believe that they can have a personal relationship with God, and that they are saved by faith, and good works. They believe in heaven and hell. They believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God.
36 Christians Holy Book The Bible is the Christian holy book. It is divided into the Old and New Testaments. Parts of the writing contained in the Old Testament are also sacred to Jewish and Muslim people.
37 Christian Place of Worship The Christian place of worship is called a Church, which are built in the shape of a cross with the altar facing east towards the rising sun. Services are led by a priest, pastor or reverend. Day of worship is normally Sunday. Westminster Abbey London

40 Islam Briefly Islam is the second most popular religion in the world with 1.3 billion followers. Islam began in Arabia and was revealed to humanity by the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). Those who follow Islam are called Muslims. Muslims believe that there is only one God, called Allah, who speaks Arabic.
41 Islam Holy Book The Muslim scripture is the Holy Qur'an. It is 'the word of God'. Muslim beliefs and practices are rooted in the Qur'an. Muslims treat the Qur'an with great respect because they believe that the Qur'an is from Allah, and every word and every letter is sacred. Muslims regard the Qur'an as the unaltered word of God.
42 Islam Place of Worship The Muslim building for communal worship is called a Mosque. The word comes from the Arabic for "place of prostration". Worshippers are called to prayer 5 times a day from minarets towers on the mosque corners. They contain only designs, no people or animals or furniture. Normal day of worship is Friday. Religious leaders are called imams. Grand mosque in Mecca
43 Five Pillars Belief system/law code Shahadah: declaration of faith "I bear witness that there is no god, but God; I bear witness that Muhammad is the prophet of God." By reciting this, one enters Islamic faith. Salah: Pray 5 times a day facing Mecca Muslims are required to pray five times a day, washing themselves before prayer and facing in the direction of Mecca while praying. Zakat: Give a fixed proportion to charity Muslims are required to give away a percentage of their earnings to those less fortunate, regardless of their religion. Saum: Fast during the month of Ramadan Muslims fast for one lunar month each year, a period called Ramadan. During this time, Muslims reflect on their behavior and strive to purify their thoughts. Hajj: Make a pilgrimage to Mecca If it is financially possible, Muslims are required to travel to Mecca once in their lifetime.
44 The Hajj Hijja: The month of pilgrimage during which all Muslims, at least once in their life, should try to make the pilgrimage to Mecca and worship at the Kaaba
45 Muslim Sects Sunni-the majority Shia-the minority The split rose from an early dispute over who should be the leader of Islam after the death of Muhammad. The Sunnis argued that the successor should be appointed by election and consensus, as tradition dictated. (Sunni comes from the Arabic word Sunna, meaning tradition. ) The Shia believed that Muhammad's successors should come from his family, starting with Ali, his son-in-law. These, the partisans of Ali, were named from the word Shia, meaning partisan in Arabic.
