Judaism

Judaism is a religion that believes in one all powerful God. They believe that he created the world and that there is no beginning and end to him. They look out of two books. Some prefer one over the other saying that one is the word of God. The two books are the Torah and Tanakh.

Messiah

There was a man named Jesus that was born once and claimed to be the Messiah saying he was the savior of all. Jews thought he was a false prophet and did not believe he was the Messiah. The Christian religion believe he wasn't a false prophet. But the Jews crucified him on a cross for being a false prophet with the help of the Romans.
