World history; HELP

posted by on .

That's all I have so far.
I need to add more.
Help please?

How did the religion of the Hebrews differ from many of the religions of their neighbors?

Hebrews were monotheists they prayed to only one god, unlike their neighbors. Their neighbors were polytheists. Hebrews worshiped Yahweh. Yahweh was their one and only god. The Hebrews asked Yahweh for protection from their enemies, just as other people prayed to their gods to defend them.

    If you are to focus on differences, you should delete the last sentence; that's a similarity.

    Read several of the articles linked here:

    You could add that the Hebrew God promoted ethics and morality among the Hebrews. Think about the Ten Commandments.

    Another difference was the idea of human sacrifice. When Abraham was about to sacrifice his son Isaac, God stopped him.

The Hebrews asked At the time other neighborly religions sacrificed humans while that wasn't part of the Hebrew religion.
