Analysing three religions
Uploaded by Jazza40 on Feb 20, 2007
Presently, the three largest religions are Christianity, Islam and Judaism. It first struck me that these three all had a single person or prophet that “began” the motility which has lead them to their heights today. Christianity - Jesus, Islam - Mohammad, Judaism - “the nameless God”.
