Judaism later had a strong influence on Christianity and Islam Diaspora A Diaspora is a dispersion of a people from their original homeland. In global history we studied the Diaspora of the Jews from their homeland in Canaan (Israel) in 77 C.E. According to tradition, the Jews were given Israel by God in about 2000 B.C.E. In about 77 C.E., the Romans attacked Jerusalem and destroyed the temple. With Jerusalem now being controlled by the Romans, Jews dispersed throughout Eurasia in search of a place where they could practice

freely. In 1948 a Jewish state of Israel was created although many Jews still live in other parts of the World. Christianity (1AD-Present) Jesus was the founder of Christianity. Jesus teachings included many Jewish beliefs, such as monotheism and the Ten Commandments. He stressed Gods personal relationship with each person. Jesus followers were called disciples and later apostles.

Christianity (1AD-Present) Jesus was crucified around A.D. 29 for challenging the authority of the Roman government. Jesus disciples believed that his crucifixion was a triumph over death and that he was the Messiah (deliverer). The Jewish priests of the time did not believe he was the Messiah and call his ministry blasphemy. Jesus disciples continued to spread Jesus teachings and Christianity later became a prominent religion throughout

the world. Roman Empire persecuted Christians until Constantine the Great made Christianity the official religion of the empire (380 c.e) Bible Christians used The Bible as a way to follow their God. The book consisted of the Old and New Testament. The bible contains stories and messages about how to live and behave and how to prepare for the afterlife and judgment day. The New Testament is about Jesus life as it was on

earth and how it came to be. Islam(600s Present) Islam is a religion that came about in the early 600s. The founder was a merchant named Muhammad Ali. He claimed that one night the voice of Allah (God) spoke to him, and thus he began the religion.
