The Jewish Religion state a strong base that is tied to Christianity. The Jewish people and their story has been discussed in many bible verses and traditional Jewish books that have been translated to include the Jewish in today’s times. We will find more Jewish religions in the subheadings below.
Who are the Jewish?
The kingdom of Israel was divided into two after the death of King Solomon. The Kingdom of Israel situated in the North and the Kingdom of Judah, located in the South (1 Kings 11:9-13). King Solomon sons headed these Kingdoms; Rehoboam and Jeroboam (1 Kings 12:16-24). The word Jewish was first mentioned in 1 Chronicles 4: 18 after the split. The term Jewish is used here to mean Judah, a Hebrew word meaning Yehudi, which is translated as Jewish, Jew, or Judeans meaning descendants from the Tribe of Judah. This word is translated from other verses to mean brothers from understanding the split of the two kingdoms. Judah, who is the ancestor of Israel, was one among the twelve sons of Jacob. Later the Kingdom of Israel to the north was conquered by the Assyrian King Sennacherib; all the citizens were exiled and lost. The other kingdom of Judah was not conquered at this time. All the remnants of the Israel Kingdom from this time were referred to as Judeans of Jewish. They all came to Judah for prayers. The Babylonians later invaded the Kingdom of Judah; some of its citizens went to exile in Egypt. But still, the remnants were referred to as Jewish regardless of the ancestral origin of the people of Israel. Zechariah states that Yehudi will refer to all the remnants of Jewish in the Millennial Kingdom, Jerusalem will be their capital city, and they will be called Jewish (Zechariah 14:8-21).
What is the History of Jewish Religion?
The Jewish prayed at the Temple in Jerusalem to their God called Yahweh. According to the New Testament, Jesus referred to the Jewish as descendants of the tribe of Judah and Israel. During Jesus’s times, there were the Gentiles and the Jewish. People became Jewish through baptism into Christianity and saved in Jesus’ name (Romans 3: 29, 1 Corinthians 1:23, Mathew 25:34, Genesis 49:10, Numbers 24:17). The Jewish became Christians, either spiritual or through baptisms (Luke 2:36, James 1:1, John 1:19, Romans 2:29,9:6, Galatians 5:28-29). The Apostle Paul state that he was Jewish by Flesh as he was an authentic remnant of Israel’s people (Philippians 3:4-6, Acts 21:39). In the New Testament, the Jewish and the Gentiles are all welcomed to the Kingdom of God. The Jewish nation is chosen, and the lord will bless them wherever they go or live (2 Samuel 7:15-17, Zechariah 13:9, Zechariah 8:20-23, Joel 3:17, Zechariah 14:8-9).
What are the days and hours of prayers according to Jewish Religion?
In Jewish Religion, prayer and worship take place three times a day; in the morning, afternoon, and evening according to their prayer book Siddur, Acts 2:15, Acts 3:1, 10:9). Jewish prayer and worship practices consist of reciting written service text in the Synagogue, where they prayed together. Jewish men must attend all the services and repeat all the text while their women are not obliged to follow them. Jewish women may only participate in one prayer service and not recite any text. The morning service is called Shacharit, happening at 9 am dawn. The afternoon prayers, Mincha, happens at 3 pm, a time referred to a gift-offering hour. The evening prayer time known as Arvit (hour of confession), takes place at nightfall. The Jewish Sabbath prayer time begins on Friday evening. There are special recitations they do on Sabbath, which are Musaf and Neila; these recitations are also done during major Jewish holidays.
The Jewish prayer recitations are majorly composed of the Songs of Songs and Kabbalist (a term meaning receiving the Sabbath). Another famous composition of prayers comes from Psalms: 29, 95, 99, Poem of Lekha Dodi, rabbis, and commemorations from Exodus 31:16-17). The traditional Jewish law directs the Judeans to face Jerusalem and when they are in Jerusalem to look at the Temple and Holy of Holies during their prayers. Jewish performs individual prayers and public prayers. Jewish public prayers include more than ten people, usually called Minyam. Jewish men wear Tefillin (leather boxes and leather straps) on their foreheads and forearms during afternoon prayer times. The Tefillin contains scripture writings from the Bible; the book of Exodus 13:1-16, Deuteronomy 6:4-9, and Deuteronomy 11:13-21). The Jewish prayer practice is tied to the concept of sacrificing animals for all their misgivings as per the Old Testament in Abraham’s story (Genesis 15:10, 22, Exodus 29:19-22, Leviticus 9:3-4, Leviticus 23:19, and Numbers 6:14, Numbers 10:10). In the New Testament, the lord Gave his only Son Jesus Christ, to die for us and deliver us from the burden of sin; the blood of Jesus saved all humankind, including both the Gentiles and the Jewish (John 3:16). After the destruction of the Jewish temple of prayers in Jerusalem, many rabbis came up with different prayer recitations, and guidelines multiplied in the modern days. Jewish payer traditions continued to differ according to religious affiliations, and still, there are some similarities (Numbers 15:37-41).
As stated in this context, the Jewish tradition depicts the origin of Christianity and God’s love for the Jewish and all the Nations. Since King Solomon’s death, leading to the formation of the two kingdoms, the Northern Israel Kingdom and the Kingdom of Judah to the South, the Israelites have continued to serve the Lord Yahweh from every corner of the world as the Jewish nation. Their descendant has live in many places, including Egypt and other millennial Kingdoms. The Jewish traditions maintained and spread to all corners of the world, including their prayer practices, even in the most challenging times of war, exile, and invasion. Jesus delivered all Christians and pronounced them Jew spiritually through baptism and God’s love, creating a new definition and understanding of the term Jew in our days (John 3: 15-17, Acts 3:15, Acts 3:1, Acts 10:9).
