Describe three similarities and three differences between Christianity, Judaism and Islam
Holy book – C – Bible, J- Torah and I Quran
Place of worship – C – church, J – Temple or Synagogue and I –mosques
Religious leaders – C – priest or pastor, J – rabbi, and I – Imam
Sabbath – C – Sunday, J- Saturday and I – Friday
The first of the three similarities are that all three have a holy book.
The difference between them is in Christianity it’s the Bible, in Judaism it’s the Torah and in
Islam it’s the Qur’an. The next similarity is that all three religions have a place of worship.
The difference is that in Christianity it’s a church, in Judaism it’s the temple or Synagogue,
and in Islam it’s a mosque. Finally the last similarity between the three religions is that all
three have religious leaders. The difference is that in Christianity you have your pastor or
priest, in Judaism you have your Rabbi, and in Islam you have your Imam.
