Judaism is the religion and culture of the Jewish people and is known to be one of the earliest recorded faiths. Judaism shaped each prophets experience and teachings by having the prophets Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, Aaron and many more who were known to be known for seeing the future. The prophets experienced and gave teachings of what had been taught to them by the god that they cherished. They were known as the navi also meaning "spokesman" as they were capable in telling what they felt as they were selected by god to deliver what needed to be said, and many individuals where able to analyze the economics of the prophet of greed.

Historically Jesus was born to a virgin and his mother was Mary and she was engaged to Joseph and he was a carpenter. When Joseph found out that she was pregnant an Angel instructed him to marry her. She was God chosen one to have his son. Jesus was born to pay for our sins. He was born around 4- 6 B.C. in a town called Bethlehem and there he was born in a manger. There was a king named Herod, king of Palestine wanted to kill all of the born males under the age of two. At that time an angel told Joseph to take his family to Egypt so that Jesus would not be killed. After Herod died the family moved back to Israel and was raised in a town called Nazareth. Jesus had siblings; his brothers were James, Joseph, Simon, and Judas. At the age of twelve Jesus was taken to Jerusalem for Passover, when he did not return his parents found him at the temple in Jerusalem where he was teaching. There is really teachers at the temple were amazed at what he knew. Jesus was a carpenter so he did that until he started his ministry at the age of thirty. Jesus was baptized by John and from there he was led by the spirit in the wilderness to fast which he did for forty days and forty nights. He was tempted by the devil three times because he did want him to fail. He tempted him three times, once was to kill himself, because he was hungry he tempted to make the rock into bread, and the devil tempted him to bow down and honor him. Jesus objects all three times and from there the devil fled. He was followed by 12 disciples and they took care of him along his journey of ministry and teachings. After that he went on to perform miracles such as making the blind see, bringing the dead to life, and casting out devils. He was later crucified died and died on the cross, some say between 30 and 33 A.D. He was buried and resurrected in 3 days to sit on the right hand of God.
