Another Religion to the Mankind
There is a theory that it was Judaists but not early Christians that severed the tie between Judasim and Christianity after the Jewish-Roman War.
Judaists had to reorganize its religion since it lost the temple in Jerusalem while Judaism at the time was structured around the temple. Through its reorganization, new Judaism came to disqualify Christian Judaists, namely Judaists who accepted the teaching of Christ Jesus and followed Him. Accordingly, while Christians included the Old Testament in its holy books, Judaists came to totally neglect Christianity.
It means that Judaism split into two in the first century: Christianity and new Judaism. Indeed, if there had been no Jewish-Roman War and the temple of Jerusalem had continued to function as the center of Judaism, there should have been Christian Judaists for centuries or even to date.
Conversely, for Christianity to be completely separated from old Judaism, the Jewish-Roman War had to erupt and the temple of Jerusalem had to be destroyed.
This providence is very profound. God probably intended to use Christianity as a common religion of the mankind, since Judaism lacked something important to the eyes of God. For this purpose, Christianity had to be separated from Judaism.
But, God also gave Islam, another religion subject to the same God of Judaists and Christians, to Arabs, etc. in the 7th century. It is as if God had judged that there were some deficiencies in Christianity around the 7th century.
And, there is no denying that God might further give another religion to the mankind that is subject to the same God as that of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, since Islam cannot completely complement Judaism and Christianity.
Or is the mankind expected to read the Old Testament, the New Testament, and the Koran on the same level and with the same passion to each?
