**Upanishads
The philosophical and most recently composed portion of the 4 Vedas- the sacred texts of the
Hindu tradition. The term Upanishad translates to “sitting near and refers to a period of
intellectual and philosophical inquiry that developed following the earlier Vedic period. In
contrast to the predominantly ritual and sacrifice based texts of the earlier vedas, the Upanishads
reflect a shift in focus towards a focus on aquiring a higher knowledge and the quest for
Enlightenment. It exists predominantly in the form of conversations that take place between two
people, most often a teacher and his student. These conversations address many questions of life
especially reguarding the relationship between god (Brahman) and the self (atman).

An early convert to the christian religion, as a result of an aparent personal encounter with the

traveled around the Eastern mediteranian spreading the teaching of christ, and converted many
people. While traveling he maintained communication with the early christian comunities
through letters, which today represent the ealiest christina literature. In his letters, he is said to
have reffered to himself as theapostle of the gentiles), as he stressed the excepance of Jews and
Non-jews alike as coverts. He rejecting the need to convert to Judaism, or follow the many laws
associated with the tradition, in order to attain salvation. Instead claimed that faith in jesus alone

**Covenant
A central part of the Jewish (Isrelight) tradition- it is an agreement or contract between the
Israelite people and God that specifies exactly what human behavior is acceptable. There were
two major covenants. The first was between god and the people of Isreal, in the form of devine
revelation through Moses at Mount Sinai, which defined a set of moral codes and obligations that
still govern Jewish society today. The second was between God and Abraham, promising land to
the Hebrews , which is viewed as an exchange for upholding the agreement to live according to
Gods wishes, rather than a gift.
-Agreement or contract between god and his people.
*Sallekhana
*Yijing (I Ching)
*Khalsa
*Hasidism
A movement founded by a leader/ teacher by the name of Israel Ben Eliezer that followed the
period of rabinic judaism. He preached the message that the best way to communicate with god
is through humility, good deeds, and prayer. This was a movement aimed at the greater
population that consisted mostly of lower class peasants who did not have access to education,
and subsquently were unable to read the religious scripture. Untill this time, as part of the rabinic
movement, warship and religious ritual was performed under the guidance of Rabis, (religious
teachers), the only people considered educated enough to be qualified to teach and interpret
religious law and scripture. Hasidism became a popular movement among the common person,
as it shifted focus away from rigid formalities of a scripture based tradition, to a more personal
and accesible warship and relationship with god. Eliezer stressed that you didnt need to be able
to read to study every word of the bible or perform every ritual in detail in order to be pious.

John-
One of god’s deciples thought to have written the fourth gospel. It is distinguished from the
earlier 3 gospels often referred to as the “synoptic gospels. This distinction is made largely due
to the difference in writing style and content.
- John presents Jesus as the divine figure who descends from above to bring God's presence in to
a hostile world to the gift of eternal life to all who believe.
Diaspora-
Jews living outside of Isreal: typicaly displaced by invading civilizations. Formed many small
comunities in isolated populations. Jews stuck together.
Christian Persecution by romans:
Christians were heavily persecuted by roman rulers in early times becaue although they followed
the Jewish tradition of Monotheirsm, they rejected the many roman gods of the time, as objected
of their warship of Idols. Romans persecuted them not as much on the basis of religious
differences, but more on the fact that they were a growing population that disagreeed with their
authority, and were considered at first an insabordinate nueucance, and then later a threat as the
pupulation began to grow.
