Judaism, Christianity, and Islam are three of the world’s main religions. Their characteristics and history each makes them unique. However, with the similarities also come differences.
The three religions, Christianity, Judaism, and Islam are all very similar. Take Christianity for example, they believe in monotheism. Similarly, Judaism and Islam have the same belief. The Judaism faith has a book called the Torah, just like Christianity has the Bible and Islam has the Quran. People who have the Islam faith believe in life after death, as do the people of Christianity and Judaism. Muslims and Jews believe that if a person is good that person will go to heaven and if they are not good you go to hell: equally the Christians have the same belief. All religions have place to worship and Judaism is worshiped in synagogues, also the Christians believers worship in a church.
Coming similarities also come differences. Take Islam for example, they believe that the angel Gabriel told Mohammad how to “live life”, and he wrote the Koran. However, both Christian and Judaism believe that different people wrote different parts of their “holy book” Today there are only about seventeen million Jews. Whereas in Christianity there are approximately one billion and the one point three billion believers in Islam faith. The days of worship also vary. In Islamic faith, all male Muslims must go to a mosque on Fridays. Yet, in Christianity, church, and Islam, synagogues, attend on Sundays. The faiths themselves have denominations such as Baptist and Lutheran, while in Islam there are two, and in Judaism there are none. Christianity is spread widely all over the world, on the other hand there is Islam which is concentrated in the Middle East and Judaism is mainly in Israel, USA, and the former Soviet Union.
All these religions are very unique and they each contain their personal history and beliefs. Each can help differentiate the religions and make them independent.
