  2. 2. Why  do  some  say  Judaism  is  neither  a  race  nor  a  culture?  Ø  Race  must  have  gene5c  similari5es.  Jews   can  convert  and  thus  not  be  gene5cally   related.    Ø  Not  a  culture  because  there  are  many   cultures  represented  in  Judaism.

  6. 6. Difference  between  Jewish  concept  of  messiah  and  Chris5an  concept  of  savior   Messiah   •  Will  be  human,  not  divine   •  Poten5al  to  come  at  any  age.  One  always   on  earth.   •  Will  lead  people  back  to  Israel  and   establish  kingdom  of  peace   Savior   •  Not  human,  divine   •  Sacrifice  (or  subs5tu5on)  for  sins   •  Not  poli5cal  leader  
  7. 7. What  has  been  suggested  about  the  world  to  come  aSer  the  messiah?   World  will  be  peaceful   Lion  and  lamb  will  be  happy  together   Temple  in  Jerusalem  will  be  restored   There  will  be  one  world  government   and  all  will  follow  it  by  choice  
  8. 8. What  are  some  points  that  orthodox   and  reconstruc5onist  Jews  might   disagree  about?  Orthodox   Reconstruc5onist   • God  exists   • God  does  not   • Jewish  people   exist   chosen  by  God   • Judaism  is   • Law  is  s5ll   mainly  a  culture   authorita5ve   • No  authority  to   scripture  
  9. 9. Most  agnos5c  Jews  consider  themselves  what  type  of  Jew  and  why?  Ø  Reformed  because  this  type  of  Judaism  is   the  most  liberal  and  generally  allows  the   widest  range  of  acceptable  beliefs  among   Judaism    
  10. 10. How  do  Jews  feel  toward  Chris5ans  and  Muslims?  Ø  Jews  believe  Chris5ans  and  Muslims  worship   the  same  God  as  they  do  Ø  They  believe  Chris5ans  and  Muslims  can  be   righteous  if  they  follow  the  law  that  has  been   revealed  to  them  (Chris5ans  and  Muslims)  Ø  S5ll  the  Jews  believe  they  have  been  chosen   by  God  in  a  way  that  the  Chris5ans  and   Muslims  have  not  been    
  11. 11. Why  must  Jews  live  up  to  a  higher  standard  than  non-­‐Jews?  Ø  They  have  been  chosen  by  God  and  have   special  status.  Ø  They  have  received  special  revela5on  from   God.

  14. 14. Why  do  Reform  Jews  use  the  word  temple  instead  of  synagogue?  Ø  Reformed  Jews  do  not  believe  the  temple  in   Jerusalem  will  be  rebuilt;  therefore,  they  do   not  reserve  the  word  temple  for  a  building   that  is  s5ll  to  come.  Ø  They  think  that  the  synagogue  has  replaced   by  the  temple.    
  15. 15. List  five  roles  the  synagogue  can  play  Ø  A  center  of  the  Jewish  religious  community  Ø  A  place  of  prayer  Ø  A  place  of  study    Ø  A  place  of  educa5on  Ø  A  place  of  social  work  Ø  A  place  of    charitable  work  
  16. 16. Where  are  the  Torah  scrolls  kept?   The  scrolls  are  kept  in  a  cabinet  in  the   synagogue  called  an  "ark,"  as  in  Ark  of  the   Covenant,  not  as  in  Noahs  Ark  
  17. 17. Explain  two  ideas  about  the  temple  Ø  It  is  a  physical  place  that  will  be  rebuilt  in   the  age  to  come  aSer  the  messiah  comes.   At  that  5me,  there  will  be  thanks  sacrifices   again  at  the  temple.  Ø  The  temple  is  no  longer  a  physical  place.  It   will  not  be  rebuilt  in  Jerusalem.  The   synagogue  has  now  taken  its  place.    
  18. 18. This  concludes  the  ques5ons  that  I  want  you  to  be  familiar  with  for  a  test.
