Great Job! Now you are ready to complete the assessment. Imagine that you are a reporter attending a very unique press conference. At this press conference, the important religious figures discussed in the lesson are asked questions about their religions! Your faithful readers are anxious to learn all about the world’s three major monotheistic religions. Your task is to use what you learned in the lesson to explain the answers to your readers, who are unfamiliar with the religions. Next, you will write two of your own questions and provide a sample answer for each.

Step 1: Answer the six questions using three to four sentences each. Use what you learned in the lesson to guide your response. •In what ways is the Holy Land an important site for all three monotheistic faiths? This land is considered holy and sacred to each religion. Many places of worship are located there for each religion. The Holy Land holds a special in each religion’s past. •The three major monotheistic religions are sometimes described as branches of the same family tree. If this is true, how would you describe the trunk of the tree? The trunk of the tree would be Abraham because of the common roots of the three religions. From the base, the trunk would split in two in representation of the believed founders of these religions. The founders were believed to be Isaac Ishmael. •How are the three major holy books of the monotheistic faiths both similar and different? Their books are similar in the way that they explain and state the foundation of their religion. Each religion believes in a higher power, one god. The details of each religion very in importance. •How are the basic beliefs of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam alike? Each one believes in the 10 commandments, the Sabbath and that Moses was a prophet of god. They all believe in some sort of afterlife. Some of the differences for example, is the fact that Christians are the only ones that believe that Jesus resurrected. •What types of internal differences and divisions exist within each religion? Each religions have different sects and denominations that have specific believes and customs.

•What characteristics and beliefs of the three religions make them different? Judaism believes in having a rabbi to lead their church while Christians have priest/preachers.

What was the reason of the separation of religions? The differences in opinion and character. Q: Moses, what is the basis and perspective of your beliefs? A: I believe in the Lord and his commandments, with all of my heart and soul. Q: What do you think is a common similarity between the three main religions? A: Well, each religion believes in a higher power, a god.

Step 2: After you have explained the answers to the six questions above, it's your turn to write two questions of your own that you would like to ask any of the religious figures discussed in the lesson (ex. Jesus, Mohammad, Moses). You should also write sample answers to the two questions you create. Your questions and answers should address one of the following topics from the lesson, but should not repeat answers already discussed in this assessment: •how the three religions are alike and different

•what perspective each religion has on the prophets discussed in the lesson •what basic beliefs each religion follows
•what revelations the holy books of the three religions provide and how they relate to one another
