They belief that all the prophets heard them and there teachings can be found in the Bible. The Jews feel that history begins the same way as the Muslims with the creation of the world by God, but after this they tend to veer off from the Islamic beliefs.

However, the Jews believes that other religions are real, nevertheless for Jews the only religion that they should worship is Judaism.
In Genesis chapter one, man and woman are created simultaneously. Yet, man is only mentioned to be created in the image of God. According to Jewish folklore, Lilith was the first woman. God had created Adam from dust, while Lilith was created with filth and sediment instead of dust. Lilith would argue with Adam and she would refuse to lie beneath him sexually since she believed herself his equal.
Having created Adam in his own image, the Lord God commanded Adam not to eat of the Tree of Knowledge of good and evil. After the Lord God created Eve from Adam's rib, Milton's Adam warns Eve that the consequence of eating the tree's forbidden fruit will be the knowledge of death. From the Bible and Milton's text, it is apparent that Eve hears directly only from Adam about the forbidden fruit. It is significant that God sends Raphael to "converse with Adam," to warn him of the fall of Satan and his companions, and to alert Adam to the ... ... middle of paper ... ...rcissism engenders the desire to be worshipped as a Goddess. Wanting deity for both, Eve chooses to induce Adam to eat because she is resolved that Adam shall share her fate.
The Hebrew tradition was that they were a patriarchal society that consisted of twelve tribes. The things we know today about them mostly come from the scriptures that were written by them to keep track of their history, achievements and use as teachings. They followed the God of Abraham, believed that God was the source of morality by following its commands, and that God was not part of creation & time. Hebrews believed that The Law regulated life of the Hebrews by saying how they dress, eat and work. The Hebrew tradition also consisted of the Passover which took place during the fall where it commemorates the liberation of God from slavery in Egypt and the story of Exodus.
They justify their position by citing Genesis chapter two, in which God takes a rib from Adam and creates Eve. They believe that because Eve was made from a piece of Adam, she is directly under him, as if he were her creator. Another source of evidence for this claim is that Adam was created before Eve. The rationale behind this piece of evidence is that the human being that was created first has more importance and is therefore, greater than the second. This interpretation also relies on the fact that women are less physically capable than men.
Interestingly, the Qur’an can only be referred to as the Qur’an when it is in Arabic. All translations of the Qur’an are titled differently. Both religions believe that though written by mortal men, the texts come directly from God. The Islamic Qur’an somewhat parallels the Christian Bible. Characters found in the Bible and the Qur’an include: Adam, Noah, Abraham, Joseph, Moses, and Jesus (Isa).
Paradise Lost by John Milton John Milton divided the characters in his epic poem Paradise Lost into two sides, one side under God representing good, and the other side under Satan representing evil and sin. Milton first introduced the reader to the character Satan, the representative of all evil, and his allegiance of fallen angels that aided in his revolt against God (Milton 35). Only later did Milton introduce the reader to all powerful God, leader and creator of all mankind (John). This introduction of Satan first led the reader to believe acts of sin were good, just like Eve felt in the Garden of Eden when she was enticed by Satan to eat the fruit off of the Tree of Knowledge (Milton 255). The later introduction of The Almighty had the readers change their feelings towards sin, as the ways of God were introduced to them and these ways were shown to be the way to feel and believe.
The Power of Good and the Power of Evil According to Christian Belief Most Christians believe that the devil, or Satan, is the power of evil and that God is the power of good. Satan is an ancient Middle Eastern word meaning "an accuser". Satan appears at various times through the Bible as the opposite to God. Satan, in the form of a snake, tempts Adam and Eve to eat the apple and so disobey God. Satan also tests Job and even tempts Jesus to abandon his ministry (but is unsuccessful).
His original disobedience is the reason that Adam and Eve fall; lured by Satan’s seemingly reasonable words, Adam and Eve disobey God as he did. It is this recurring theme of disobedience which shapes the course of Milton’s poem; firstly Satan disobeys God, then, because of Satan, Adam and Eve disobey God. Both the Humans and the Angel are exiled from Paradise and lose their perfect life as a result of
In Genesis 3 the Bible says, the devil appeared as a serpent in the Garden, and began to tempt Eve to go against God’s rule (Genesis 3:1). He convinced Eve to doubt God’s Word. Satan told Eve, if she ate the fruit from the tree she would become as enlightened as God, knowing all of what He knows, and that she would no longer need Him. Satan does this in the modern world today. He convinces humans that they do not need God.
