The concept of God in Judaism.

00:00:04 --> 00:00:06

It's mentioned in the Old Testament, in the

00:00:06 --> 00:00:07

book of Deuteronomy.

00:00:08 --> 00:00:10

Chapter number 6, verse number 4. Moses

00:00:14 --> 00:00:16

said, It's a Hebrew quotation which means

00:00:17 --> 00:00:19

Israel. The Lord, our God is one Lord.

00:00:20 --> 00:00:22

It's mentioned in the book of Isaiah, chapter

00:00:22 --> 00:00:25

number 43, verse number 11. I, even I,

00:00:25 --> 00:00:27

am Lord, and there is no savior besides

00:00:27 --> 00:00:28

me.

00:00:28 --> 00:00:30

It's mentioned in the book of Isaiah, chapter

00:00:30 --> 00:00:33

number 45, verse number 5. I am Lord,

00:00:33 --> 00:00:35

and there's none like me. There's no God

00:00:35 --> 00:00:36

besides me.

00:00:36 --> 00:00:38

It's mentioned in the book of Isaiah chapter

00:00:38 --> 00:00:40

number 46 verse number 9. I am God,

00:00:40 --> 00:00:42

and there's none like me. I am God,

00:00:42 --> 00:00:44

and there's no one besides

00:00:44 --> 00:00:46

me. It further mentioned the book of Exodus

00:00:46 --> 00:00:49

chapter number 20 verse number 3 to 5.

00:00:49 --> 00:00:52

It says, thou shall have no other God

00:00:52 --> 00:00:55

beside me. Almighty God is saying that thou

00:00:55 --> 00:00:57

shall have no other God beside me. Thou

00:00:57 --> 00:01:00

shall not make unto thee any graven image

00:01:00 --> 00:01:02

of anything, of any likeness in the heaven

00:01:02 --> 00:01:04

above, in the earth beneath, in the water

00:01:04 --> 00:01:06

beneath the earth. Thou shall not bow down

00:01:06 --> 00:01:08

to them, nor serve them. For I, thy

00:01:08 --> 00:01:10

God, thy Lord is a jealous God.

00:01:11 --> 00:01:14

These verses of the Bible strictly prohibit idol

00:01:14 --> 00:01:15

worship,

00:01:15 --> 00:01:17

and making an image of God. In the

00:01:17 --> 00:01:18

book of Deuteronomy,

00:01:18 --> 00:01:20

chapter number 5, verse number 7 to 9,

00:01:20 --> 00:01:23

the almighty God says, thou shall have none

00:01:23 --> 00:01:26

other God besides me. Thou shall not make

00:01:26 --> 00:01:29

any graven image of any likeness, of anything

00:01:29 --> 00:01:31

in the heaven above, in the earth beneath,

00:01:31 --> 00:01:32

in the water under the earth. Thou shall

00:01:32 --> 00:01:34

not bow onto them, nor serve them. For

00:01:34 --> 00:01:37

I, thy God, thy Lord is the delist

00:01:37 --> 00:01:38

God.

00:01:39 --> 00:01:41

So if you read the Jewish scriptures, you

00:01:41 --> 00:01:44

should understand the concept of God in Judaism.

00:01:44 --> 00:01:46

And this will increase

00:01:46 --> 00:01:47

the brotherhood

00:01:47 --> 00:01:50

between the Jews, Christians, the Muslims, and the

00:01:50 --> 00:01:51

Hindus.
