Humanities notes 1118 - Judaism How does it start Abraham...

This preview shows page 1 - 2 out of 2 pages.

Judaism: How does it start? Abraham the father. The story of Abraham. He lived in Ur, (polytheistic) God came to him and said “I am the one god if you create a new kingdom in my name then everything is awesome” so he created Israel. His son is Ishmael. But he is illegitimate. His wife was not supposed to have kids, but now she’s pregnant with his actual son (Isaac) – Hagar is the slave-mother. -Judaism: He kills Isaac -Islam: He kills Ishmael When he’s about to kill his son, arch-angel Gabriel intervenes and says “Okay you got it” “Sorry Hagar, Ishmael, I have to send you off” He raises Isaac to be his son. Moses: Related from a long line of things to Isaac Mohamed: Related from a long line from Ishmael Exodus: Moses finds out who he is, he needs to lead the people, considered to have happened around 1240BC But we really have no evidence that the Exodus existed.. The problem is that people are dating it wrong.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
