Western Religions
Prophecy
Concept of prophecy shows God is devoted to guiding for the good of humanity
Revelation: prophets are considered to voice the literal words of God and are
subsequently collected into scripture to be the revealed texts of tradition and are
held to be sacred; God reveals moral beliefs
Monotheism
Christianity, Islam & Judaism:
All are messianic tradition: concepts of messiah figure
Monotheistic traditions
Super cosmic being who transcends the universe and exists outside space and time
Supreme being is all mighty, possessing infinite power to as being omniscient
Conjecture that human beings are made in the image of this being who is
benevolently disposed to the world, interested in the welfare of human beings
All traditions assert there is some kind of being called God that exists
Emphasize only one god exists (monotheism)
Jewish and Muslim traditions of God is one transcendent
God created the universe within a particular span of time and from the sheer force
of imagination and will; creation being the handy work of good is not
involuntarily indifferent to good creation; cosmoses was created by God to be
good
God author of time, set in motion the passage of time when he created the
universe
Judaism
Covenant
God decides to enter into a covenant (enter into contractual, legally binding
relationship where each side has certain obligations to fulfill) with Abraham
God will keep Abrahams family in his favor, however Abraham and his
descendants are obligated with their commitments to venerate with only one God,
follow his directives
Abrahams devotion to this relationship is to be valued through circumcision 
religious bond established between God and descendants of Abraham (covenant
bond)
History interpreted as revealing how well Abrahams people have done in holding
up their side of that covenant
God punished Israelis when they do not obey him, God blesses when things go
right
www.notesolution.com
God had to choose a people in order to set example for the relationship b/w
humanity and God
Abraham is paradigm for what should be humanity’s way of engaging with God,
complete and utter obedience, faith, confidence in his judgment
Diaspora

Major source about evolution of theology/faith is set of scripturesHebrew Bible”

animals and occupied by Adam (created from dust on the ground)
God took rib from Adam when he was eating to form Eve to given Adam a
companion
