Question description

Compose a formal, argumentative essay (1000 words) in answer to the question:

Of the three Abrahamic religions (Judaism, Christianity, Islam) would you conclude that Islam has more in common with Judaism or Christianity? What leads you to this conclusion?

  • Think about what you have learned about the three Abrahamic religions
  • Review resources noted in the folder below as well as reading, notes and discussion contributions from earlier in the course that may be pertinent to comparing and contrasting the three religions.
  • Consider these "key questions":
    • In what ways are Judaism, Christianity and Islam are similar to each other?
    • In what ways are Judaism and Christianity similar to each other but different from Islam?
    • In what ways are Christianity and Islam similar to each other but different from Judaism?
    • In what ways are Judaism and Islam similar to each other but different from Christianity?
    • In what ways are each of these three religions unique, unlike the other two?
These questions are merely meant to get you thinking. In the end, you want to do more than merely compare and contrast. You want to be arguing a particular thesis: Islam has more in common with Judaism OR Islam has more in common with Christianity. Use your observations about comparisons and contrasts to help support your argument.
You can use this attached venn diagram to help you brainstorm and sort out your observations about the three religions.
  • Use your best thinking and composition skills - approximately 1000 words. You should be able to make an argument based on what you have learned about the religions throughout the course. However, if you do use any sources, be sure to cite them properly. The conclusions you arrive at and your writing should be your own (no plagiarism - review course policies on plagiarism in the "grading policies" folder of the course SYLLABUS).
  • There is no "right" or "wrong" answer to this question. It is a matter of how convincing you can be with regard to how you prove your point, drawing on evidence to support your observations.

Islam, Christianity and Judaism
There are three Abrahamic faiths. These are Islam, Judaism, and Christianity. Each came
up in a different epoch. But then they are single-handedly responsible for the longest-lasting
religious institutions in the world. The faith of Christianity stems from Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
He was the son of a carpenter and a woman named Mary. The birth of Jesus was a miracle since
his mother was a virgin at the time of his conception. He grew up to be an influential preacher, a
miracle worker, and as many would say, the living embodiment of the Son of God. His ministry
was kickstarted by an attempted execution at the hands of the provincial leader, Pontious Pilate.
The consequent persecution saw it spread all over the Middle East. Today, it is present all over
the world.
Judaism is the religion that is borne of the interaction between Abraham and God around
