Predating jesus

As the original Abrahamic faith, Judaism traces its founding to the patriarch Abraham, who is also considered an important patriarch of Christianity and Islam.

Founded more than 3,500 years ago in the Middle East, Judaism was established based on a covenant between God and the Jewish people.

The first mention is in the Sefer Zerubbabel, from the mid-seventh century, which uses the term, mashiah sheker, ("false messiah").

Verses in the Christian Bible tell that Jesus will come again in some fashion; various people have claimed to, in fact, be the second coming of Jesus.

Far from being the result of scientific breakthroughs or modern mass education, the belief that there were no gods was relatively common in the ancient world, research by Prof Tim Whitmarsh, a leading Cambridge classicist, concludes.
