                                                                                                         All three said, “yes … basically they do.” (Not all representatives of these three religions would agree, of course, but these three                                                                                                                                                                                     — all veterans of the interfaith movement — said yes right away.) 

 Despite many theological and cultural similarities and frequent social proximity among Jews- Christians and Muslims, they are still confused and divided in their perception of God. – This dispute raised up the Second Vatican Council which affirmed that Muslims “adore the one God, living and subsisting in Himself; merciful and all- powerful, the Creator of heaven and earth, who has spoken to men; they take pains to submit wholeheartedly to even His inscrutable decrees, just as Abraham, with whom the faith of Islam takes pleasure in linking itself, submitted to God.  If we started to recognize and acknowledge the similarities, we might have much less Antisemitism and Islamophobia in our world.

 

Christianity, major religion stemming from the life, teachings, and death of Jesus of Nazareth (the Christ, or the Anointed One of God) in the 1st century CE. It has become the largest of the world’s religions and, geographically, the most widely diffused of all faiths. It has a constituency of more than two billion believers. – At its most basic, Christianity is the faith tradition that focuses on the figure of Jesus Christ.  Christianity is more than a system of religious belief. It also has generated a culture, a set of ideas and ways of life, practices, and artifacts that have been handed down from generation to generation since Jesus first became the object of faith. Christianity is thus both a living tradition of faith and the culture that the faith leaves behind.

 Are Jews PROUD of Jesus?

Judaism, monotheistic religion developed among the ancient Hebrews. Judaism is characterized by a belief in one transcendent God who revealed himself to Abraham, Moses, and the Hebrew prophets and by a religious life in accordance with Scriptures and rabbinic traditions. Judaism is the complex phenomenon of a total way of life for the Jewish people, comprising theology, law, and innumerable cultural traditions.

It is history that provides the key to an understanding of Judaism, for its primal affirmations appear in early historical narratives.  The biblical authors believed that the divine presence is encountered primarily within history. God’s presence is also experienced within the natural realm, but the more immediate or intimate disclosure occurs in human actions. Although other ancient communities also perceived a divine presence in history, the understanding of the ancient Israelites proved to be the most lasting and influential. It is this particular claim—to have experienced God’s presence in human events—and its subsequent development that is the differentiating factor in Jewish thought.
