The research paper “Theology of Worship: The Judeo-Christian Tradition” studies the main principles of two religions as they have much in common. Judaism is one of the first ever-recorded monotheistic faiths, and one of the oldest traditions still practiced in the present day. The most important religious principle in Judaism is the belief in a single, omniscient, omnipotent, omni benevolent, transcendent God, and according to Jewish thought, the God had a covenant with the Jewish people, and the practice of Judaism is devoted to the study and observance of God’s commandments. The religion of Christianity is a monotheistic religion, which is fundamentally based on Jesus’ life, actions, and teachings. Christianity is considered to be the ‘one true faith’, and is easily the world’s largest religion Separate entities of the Christian tradition include: baptism, the Eucharist (communion), matrimony, Holy Orders, confirmation or Chrismation, penance and reconciliation, and the Anointing of the Sick. Many Protestant groups overtly do recognize these traits of Christianity, and Anabaptist and Brethren groups would agree with the Protestants. Orthodox, Roman Catholic, Old-Catholic, and many Anglican and Lutheran Christians hold the commemoration of these rituals together, and do not contradict them. In the Christian tradition, acts of personal piety such as prayer, bible reading, and attempting to lead a moral lifestyle should all be recognized and respected aspects of the religion. Moral and spiritual progress is supposed to only occur through the gift of the Holy Spirit and with God’s help. Christians’ primary and most represented belief is that by sharing in Christ’s life, death, and resurrection, they die with him to sin and can be resurrected with him to new life.
