Text The Old Testament provides the basis of the present day Judeo-Christian faith. It talks about the history of how the world was created, exodus of Israelites, and the Ten Commandments given to Moses by God, and also includes real life stories. The function of this text is to teach people through the experiences of people throughout history. Several books also foretell the arrival of the Messiah and the end of the world. The New Testament, on the other hand, focuses more on the life and teachings of Jesus and the Christian church. The stories are narrated through gospels and emphasize the importance of the sacrifice of Jesus. The function of the New Testament is to lead people to follow the example of Jesus more closely. The other books, written by various authors also talk about the end of the world and last battle between good and evil.

Abrahamic Religions Islam and Christianity are false interpretations and extensions of Judaism Judaism is a true religion, but with incomplete revelation. Islam is a false religion Jews and Christians are respected as 'People of the Book'. Today they have wrong beliefs and partial/ corrupted revelation
Holy Spirit Divine power given to Prophets Part of Trinity, with the Father and Son he is worshipped Angel Gabriel
Human Nature Two equal impulses, good and bad "Original sin" inherited from Adam - tendency towards evil Equal ability to do good or evil
Sin No original sin. Atonement for sins through forgiveness from God in repentance All humans from Adam are inherently sinful. Jesus atoned for our sins through his death on the Cross All humans are born sinless, but our weakness leads to sin
Forgiveness You have to bring a lamb as a sacrifice for your sin to be forgiven. All you have to do is to repent and you're forgiven automatically.  
Salvation By good works, prayers and grace of God By faith in Jesus Christ By good works, and belief in true monotheism
Salvation (God's Role) Predestination Predestination, various forms of grace Divine revelation and forgiveness
End Times God (YHWH/Adonai) will send a messenger to bring salvation on earth. Jesus came to save the Earth  
Heaven Views vary: either heaven or no afterlife Eternal heaven Eternal paradise
Hell Views vary: sinners may suffer temporary punishment, but certain sins merit eternal punishment; reincarnation or no afterlife Eternal hell. Everlasting punishment for the unrighteous Eternal hell. A place of torment and fire
