- from Ancient Hebrews
What would you do if you were asked to believe something no one else believed? Would you pick up your family and travel hundreds of miles in search of a place you knew nothing about?
The Hebrew Bible, or Torah, tells us a man named Abraham did just that, more than 3,000 years ago. Abraham had a vision that God told him to believe in only one God. Abraham’s covenant with, or promise to, God was the beginning of monotheism – the belief in one God. It was also the start of the world’s first monotheistic religion: Judaism.
