"Abrahamic Faith"

8 Tamuz 5775

In our prayers, we refer to Hashem as the "G-d of Avraham" because he was the one who merited to father a holy nation. Then we go further and say "G-d of Yitzchak" lest Yishmael also lay claim to this status and then we go further still and say "G-d of Ya'aqov" lest Eisav lay claim as well. Only the offspring of Avraham, Yitzchak and Ya'aqov are the chosen holy nation. We must be very careful of those who want to take it all back to Avraham Avinu, leaving out Yitzchak and Ya'aqov, so as to bring the children of Yishmael and Eisav into the same family with Bnei Yisrael.

From Wikipedia...

An Abrahamic religion is a religion whose people think Abraham was an important person. The best known Abrahamic religions are Judaism, Christianity and Islam, sometimes added other adherents to this three major Abrahamic religions including: Samaritanism. Druze.

And from various other sources...

Common Roots of Three Abrahamic Faiths: A Foundation for Peaceful Coexistence

...Abraham is a unique figure. His name means "Father of Many Nations." Indeed he is. We trace roots of three different, but related, world religions to...Abraham...Abraham brought the world a new way to see God. This new vision of God evolved over time and became transformed as the three Abrahamic faiths. ...Identifying the common roots of the Abrahamic faiths—while respecting their differences—can also help lay the [foundation] for a durable peace in Middle East.

...Judaism, Christianity and Islam are all Abrahamic faiths

Jewish Interfaith Endeavors: Abrahamic Dialogue

Since September 11, 2001, there has been an increased interest in Muslim religious dialogue among Jews and Christians, leading to what many identify as Abrahamic dialogue. This project employs Abraham as a figure that unites all three faiths. Whether the groups address him in conversation or invoke him only in name, Abraham becomes the symbolic father, the common denominator of monotheism.

This is the basis upon which they are building the One World Religion. Anyone who doesn't go along is to be purged, but instead Hashem will "purge" them!

Beware of any rabbi teaching it or using such terminology.


  1. CDG, Yerushalayim, Eretz Yisrael Shlemah25/6/15 2:19 PM

    Thank you for this post, Devash! Now we're clear: If people want to assert the Jewish People's right to Eretz Yisrael, or anything else belonging to us, they MUST invoke Yitzhak and Ya'acov as well as Avraham.

  2. Actually, saying all Jews are descended from Yakov and his twelve sons is sufficient. Because Avraham did father many tribes (nations) when he married Ketura. A good Chumash will have the genealogies of Avraham and Yishmael and Eisav and the sons of Yaakov, delineating the mothers of all of them. Even Noah and his wife Naama.

    1. I disagree. If that were sufficient, then we would not be mentioning all three in our prayers. Everything goes back to Avraham, who was a "root" (See Derech Hashem) and without whom the nation of Israel would not have been conceived. Nevertheless, it must always be clarified that the Holy Chosen People comes through Avraham, Yitzchak AND Ya'aqov. Each received his own promise from Hashem.

  4. The IDF is being used to indoctrinate soldiers into this mindset...

    1) Sending soldiers to be proselytized by xian missionaries

    "A couple of weeks ago, we had a request from the Israel Defence Forces to ask if they could send a group to come and hear about what we believe. Of course, we gladly agreed! Around 40 young people from all over Israel who are part of the preparatory program before joining the army came to visit, and for 2 hours they gathered in our main hall and listened as we spoke with them about Yeshua. "

    2) Establishing a Reform/Conservative presence in the IDF

    "“It is unacceptable that a person who grew up in a reform or conservative home is not permitted to share his Shabbos experience with others and what components of this are important to him. If one explains he wishes to explain things important to him but is unwilling to hear others, this is unacceptable”.
