RLGA02H3- Judaism 13:22
The Ten Waves Think, Pair, Share
- Shamanism is number one, had earliest existence
- this evolution of religion, earlier ones are less sophisticated
- Ex. Hinudism, Vedas oral texts and didnt need to be written. Human beings
believe if something is written, it is more stable, but we make mistakes.
- Wave is a metaphor- come and go
Wave one might come in and doesnt mean that it doesnt re enter in the picture in
some point, they wave into each other.
Ten waves flow into each other!!
Reading and Note tips: scim and scan and pull out key concepts, issues or theories
that are being discussed
- Myth- frames experience of their world, organized people into certain classes or
groups and manages not just people but gods as well and typically tell origin stories,
where we come from and so on.
- realms (re-lums): historians are very limited in terms of things to know, ancient
world is coming out of this idea
pre history- time we had nothing of whats going on, no evidence
Ancient religion do have their own texts
A text is something written and recited silently.
Death and After life - notion in ancient tradition and grace and even Hebrew bible,
its not great place, grey and dull.
JUDAISM- doesnt have a single founder, it can be defined as ethnic designation.
Also identify themselves as people apart of Israel. They follow the Torah, meaning
religion or faith might be an ongoing encounter of knowing God.
Classification
Diversity
Being Jewish
Monotheism- Active word to describe Judaism. As Judaism emerges, its not always
explicit clear in even Hebrew bible that their god is exclusive, but exclusively
worship that God and all other ones are false so believe they others dont exist.
Worship of one God with disclusion of other Gods. God Is seen as an Entourage-
people hang out and follow him around.
Torah- has multiple meanings and may mean literally first 5 books in Hebrew bible
or rest of it all together or Hebrew bible or can it all just mean you follow its
teachings. Stories are contained in the Torah. Stories are not just influential for
Judaism but to understand Christianity and Islam. Hebrew bible is still sacred from
Islamic and christianity . Gods ongoing engagement and sequences of moments of
success and failure are tied too moments of obedience and disobedience.

1. Torah (genesis, exodus, Leviticus, numbers, Deuteronomy)
2. Prophets (Neviim)- stuff coming after Moses and after establishment of Isreal
3. Writings (Ketuvim)- classified as short stories and poems
Revelation- 200 B.C.E
Prophets
Moses-
Hebrew Bible- written document and made up of five main books with historical
certainty by 200 B.C.E.
Sacred History
Creation Stories
- Cosmic: Creation of order out of chaos, god creates by taking this material and
making distinctions, creating boundaries and clear sense of identity between things
(light, dark, sky, earth). World is created.
- Adam and Eve (later interpretation pg.38): Adam is created in the image of
God, created for a purpose. They sing praises of god in the garden, can eat just
about anything and are really happy. The serpent is a trouble maker and God tells
them this is your place to play, but theres one tree make sure u dont touch it.
Snake says well eat this fruit you will gain gods wisdom and become exiled from this
garden.
In Jewish context exile doesnt mean that they are permanent punishment, god
always gives second chances and no final thing to say your totally done. In Judaism
Noah (commonality of flood myth in Mesopotamia) Theme of tradition??
God says to Noah this is very drastic, but there is a bit of sincerity near the distaste
and r allows Noah to survive. God sees Noah as a righteous guy, and tells him to
give him time to prepare.
Each specific tradition has many commonalties but make it their own by adding
other stuff.
The world of the patraiarch and Matriarchs
Abraham
- Covenant (circumcision)- circumcision rare practice in region and symbolizes no
more sacrifices and about worship. God wants him to exclusively worship that God
and no other god, in exchange god will reward him with Land and prosperity and
long life through your religion.
-Demythologizing nature
-Reward/punishment
-Isaac Hebrew lineage
-Ishmael Arabs
-Jacob (Israel) Israelites
