- from Ancient Hebrews
What if someone asked you to believe something no one else believed? What would you do? Could you imagine taking your family hundreds of miles from home to find a place you knew nothing about?
In the Hebrew Bible, or Torah, it says a man named Abraham did that, more than 3,000 years ago. Abraham thought God told him to believe in only one God. So, Abraham agreed to do it. His covenant with, or promise to, God was the start of monotheism, or the belief in one God. It was also the start of the world’s first monotheistic religion: Judaism.
