The Three Main Religions of the Middle East
Transcript of The Three Main Religions of the Middle East
Judaism uses the holy book called the Tanuch. The Tanuch is divided into three parts. The first part is known as the Torah, which is the most common. The next section is called the Talmud. Lastly, there is the eight books of pslams and proverbs.
Christianity also has plenty of interesting facts as well. Christianity began around 33CE when Jesus was crucified on the cross. Jesus was hung on the cross for telling holy stories of God, his father. Jewish Leaders became very upset at this, so they requested to kill him. Christianity has the most number of followers out of these three religions, with 2.1 billion christians.
The three main religions of the Middle East have many similarities and differences. These religions are known as Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Each religion has their own special characterlistics. For example: When did they originate? How they begin? What is the amount of followers? What is their holy book? Along with so much more.
After Muhammad died, the muslims argued about who should rule next. The muslims split into two: Sunni and Shi'a. Sunnis believed the new ruler should be the person most capable to rule. Shi'a believed whoever to rule should be a relative of Muhammad. About 90% of the world's muslims are Sunni.
Islam has the second most number of followers out these three religions. It has 1.2 billion followers called muslims.
Muslims use the holy book called the Qur'an. It is the most strict out of all three of the books. The Five Pillars of Faith are included in the Qur'an. The Five Pillars of Faith are basic rules that tell muslims how to live a very religious life.
Christians use the holy book called the bible. It contains stories from different prophets. There are two parts: The Old Testament and the New Testament.
Judaism has some pretty interesting features. Judaism was founded around 1800 BC when God spoke to Abraham. God promised Abraham a religion called Judaism, he also promised Israelites. Judaism has grown a lot since then. But in the mid-twentieth century, a very depressing event happened. This event is known as the Holocaust. More than seven million jews were killed. After the Holocaust ended, the Jews decided to gain back their followers. Currently, there are about seventeen million jews worldwide.
Islam is a pretty common religion in Southwest Asia. Islam originated around 622 CE, being the last of these three religions to form. It began when Muhammad started teaching stories that he believed to be true. He saw all these stories in a dream when he was in a cave.
The three religions have many similarities and differences. For instance, all three's father is Abraham. But they all have different founders. (Judaism has Abraham, Christianity has Jesus, and Islam has Muhammad.)
