- from Ancient Hebrews
If someone wanted you to believe something no one else believed, how would you react? Would you take your family hundreds of miles from home in search of a place you knew nothing about?
According to the Hebrew Bible, or Torah, a man named Abraham actually did 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.
