Major ideas: Jesus is Messiah who fulfills Jewish law, salvation through faith, love thy neighbor, trinity. Predominantly in Europe, North America, and South America.

70 Islam Arose in 17th century on Arabian Peninsula. Mohammad, founder, believed God had selected him as messenger to preach faith in Allah, the one true God. Quaran, Holy book of Islam, contains God’s message as spoken to Mohammad. Five Pillars of Islam. Faith, prayer, charity, fasting, making pilgrimage to Mecca. Within 100 years, the Islamic caliphates controlled the Middle East, Southwest Asia, and Indonesia.

71 Judaism Began in Southwest Asia along the Mediterranean Sea. Founder, Abraham, made covenant with God. Moses was given the 10 Commandments to guide moral/ethical conduct, which created the basis for civil and religions laws in Judaism. Today predominately in Europe, Israel, and North America.
